Book Description

29 April 2014 Sex Criminals
Named one of Time Magazine's top 10 graphic novels for 2013! Suzie's just a regular gal with an irregular gift: when she has sex, she stops time. One day she meets Jon and it turns out he has the same ability. And sooner or later they get around to using their gifts to do what we'd ALL do: rob a couple banks. A bawdy and brazen sex comedy for comics begins here, by Matt Fraction (Satellite Sam, Hawkeye) and Chip Zdarsky (Prison Funnies, Monster Cops). "On the surface, this is a hilarious story of two people, Suzanne and Jon, with the power to stop time after they orgasm, and then rob banks while (almost) everyone else is frozen in time, which is an amazingly original idea. But underneath that, this is a story of the beginning of a relationship: its exciting newness, its terrifying possibilities, its ups and downs, its secrets and understandings, and, of course, its sex." - PW

5.0 out of 5 stars The most enjoyable original comic in years 1 May 2014
By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER
Long before the middle of the book I was - and you will be too - deeply in love with Suzie and Jon (the titular Sex Criminals) and their story, but it was the middle of the book when Suzie jumped up on the pool table to belt out Fat-Bottomed Girls by Queen that I realised I was reading a completely new kind of comic I’d never read before. As soon as Suzie opens her mouth, the lyrics are blocked out by captions from Matt Fraction explaining why they couldn’t reprint the Queen lyrics because certain things hadn’t gone through the legal department in time. It’s an absolutely perfect moment.

Sex Criminals was the most original comic of 2013, in a year filled with terrific and original comics, and if you’ve never heard of it, I’m here to tell you this is a book everyone (provided they’re over 18) should read. Suzie and Jon can temporarily freeze time when they orgasm and they can walk about in the frozen world. Jon works as a personal assistant in a bank which is foreclosing on Suzie’s library and, after the two meet at a party and discover their mutual ability, they decide to rob the bank to keep the library’s doors open. But Suzie and Jon aren’t the only ones with special powers and they’re about to find out what happens to sex criminals when the sex police show up!

The premise is excellent and completely unique but what really makes the comic so good are the characters. The first chapter introduces our heroine, Suzie, as she narrates her life story directly to the reader, taking in her tragic home life - father committed suicide, mother became an alcoholic - which is an unexpected tack to take in a book that’s marketed as a comedy, to finding out about sex and her powers. Jon’s story follows with its own bumps along the way (what’s a story without conflict, eh?

Believe. The. Hype.

Sex Criminals is a truly glorious read. it has everything, well-rounded and believable (well, in the realms of comics!) characters, an original and perfectly executed idea, superb art-work and a genuine sense of self-awareness and humour. I often find comics that use humour hard to engage with, but this has a perfect balance of humour and utalises within the narrative very well. It's also refreshing to see a strong female-lead within a comic book like this. I had come to the Sex Criminals party a little late (a sentence that sounds all kinds of wrong in isolation), but I can truly see what all of the buzz and hype was about. Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarksy make a perfect combo and you truly get the feeling that they really love what they are creating here and that they have true artistic freedom to create what they want. A genuinely fantastic book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I truly loved this book 21 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I truly loved this book!

I have been a fan of Matt Fraction for quite some time, but for me this is his best work to date.

Witty, original, fantastic character development, and a truly unique interpretation of the ability to stop time.

I wont give to much away, but everyone interested in graphic novels should be reading this book and enjoying cumworld :p

5.0 out of 5 stars A graphic novel gem 5 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
was not expecting something as good as this. absolutely fantastic read! great artwork, awesome characters with an interesting progression with character development and to top it off a great sense of humor tucked away within the events that occur and the dialogue the characters share.

also it actually uses love and sex as a GOOD narrative device rather then just sticking a pair of tits between the pages to just attract a larger audience people. something that's rare in any form of media today. very intelligent and i highly recommend it!
