More adventures and encounters with Jon and Suzie
Sex Criminals Volume 3: Three the Hard Way (Sex Criminals Tp) - Chip Zdarsky,Matt Fraction

 

Life gets complicated as our sex criminals try to find others like themselves. There are side stories involving others with similar issues but different results. More characters are introduced and their lives become inter-twined.

I think that I no longer find this series (which is not finished) fascinating anymore. The original premise was quite interesting but I can't really see where this is going and it doesn't engage enough as it shoots from one scene to another.

Sex Criminals Volume 2: Two Worlds, One Cop - Chip Zdarsky,Matt Fraction
This is a truly breathtaking novel.

When I first started the book, I was a little weary due to Q's fixation on Margo. Great, another book about a boy idolizing a girl beyond personhood. But Green really surprised me with a fantastic glimpse into the human experience, through adolescent eyes.

The book is perfect in its simplicity and its complexity. Green really taps into the teenage mind as it pulls from its environment (books, schoolwork, parental comments) and builds a worldview accordingly. The themes are simple to follow and understand, but outstandingly complex and intense in their scope. The book has an interesting plot, but also really speaks to what it is to be human and what it mean to grow up as individuals.

I really enjoyed this novel.

There were terms I did not like, such as the character's use of "retarded", but overall the book was well thought out and the characters were well developed. I enjoyed the realness of the characters and their journey to understanding each other as well as themselves. At times funny, at times philosophical, at times philosophically funny, this is a beautiful piece of literature.

Sex Criminals : vol. 2
Sex Criminals Volume 2: Two Worlds, One Cop - Chip Zdarsky,Matt Fraction

This volume while still weird and irreverent, dealt with more issue and I loved it. I liked seeing Jon and Suzie deal with more than the initial sex filled craziness. I liked the new characters and am excited to read volume 3 when it comes out and see how the sex police story continues.

Sex Criminals: vol.1
Sex Criminals, Volume 1 - Chip Zdarsky,Matt Fraction

I never wrote a review for this. I'm really glad I reread this, I didn't realize how much I forgot. 

 

I really like the tone of this series. It's irreverent, hilarious, and weird. I am glad that I picked it up the volume because if I'd just picked up the first issue I don't know if I would have kept reading it.  I'm really excited to see what happens in the next volume.

#CBR7 Book 154: Sex Criminals, vol 1: One Weird Trick" by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky
Sex Criminals, Volume 1 - Chip Zdarsky,Matt Fraction

What did I just read? This comic certainly is completely different from anything I've experienced before. So the first time Suzie masturbates and orgasms, it literally makes time freeze. She's not sure if it's like that for everyone and having no one to ask, and limited resources to figure things out, she's a bit lost. Then she meets Jon at a party and is surprised to discover that it's exactly the same for him. They've always believed themselves to be alone, and now, when they've found each other, they become a bit addicted to exploring the range of their "powers".

The library where Suzie works is being closed down by the bank and Jon suggests that they use their unusual ability to stop time and rob banks. Just small amounts every time, slowly getting enough to save the library. Suzie's reluctant at first, but sadness and desperation to save her beloved library makes her change her mind. Only, Suzie and Jon aren't the only ones with unusual power, their activities have been noticed and there are people close on their tail.

While the book starts on a quite depressing beat, with Suzie explaining how her father was killed and her childhood wasn't exactly a barrel of laughs, most of the comic is actually very funny. Filthy and NSFW and probably not for kids, but laugh out loud funny and creative, with a rather unique concept and very likable characters. Volume 1 collects the first five issues, where we are introduced to Suzie and Jon and learn how they both came to discover their strange superpowers. Being a huge fan and frequenter of libraries and a passionate book lover, I can't really fault Jon's plan of robbing banks to prevent the closure of one. And his job at the bank does indeed seem pretty sucky, even if I don't exactly agree with some of his coping strategies.

Issue 5 ends at a pretty dramatic point and I'm very eager to get the next volume and see what happens next. My husband and everyone else who's recommended this comic were absolutely correct. Matt Fraction's writing is hilarious and Chip Zdarsky's art fits perfectly. I will be reading more of this in the coming year.
