Overview

"Great fun!" - The Miami Herald
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

Winner of the 2014 Eisner Award for Best New Series

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review - Douglas Wolk
Zdarsky's fluid, brightly hued artwork is dense with smutty gags, but this is a deeper, more understated comedy than it initially seems. It's really about how desire is policed from within and without, how sex can be both a refuge from isolation and its cause, and how the roving hands of youth are often frantically groping for understanding.

    Sex Criminals is the best new comic of the past few years, shado

    Sex Criminals is the best new comic of the past few years, shadowed only by Saga. The writing is hilarious and sometimes completely over the top with innuendo and explicit themes, but the comic is just a blast to read.

    Orgasm stops time?

    An interesting and original series in which our “heroine”.discovers that her orgasms stop time. She then discovers that she is not alone to have this strange ability. She and her partner turn to crime during the Quiet (when time stands still) but get discovered with consequences.

    The artwork is basic but well-executed with a little too much colour for my liking.

    Quite fun, not for the prudish.
