Hilarious, educational, and full of emotion. Highly recommend.

The part when the doctor is listing the different types of birth control was THE BEST PART. SO FUNNY AND ACTUALLY VERY IMPORTANT.

This second volume is way depressing. There’s so much unhappiness, so many problems. Drama is everywhere, and cruelty as well. The characters barely even smile. That’s too bad because smiles are beautiful. The story picks up right where it was left of at the end of the first volume. That’s cool, but also a stark message that the characters are in deep, deep trouble with the Sex Police. So-so plot, so-so atmosphere, great characterization, great graphics and (still) an interesting concept.

If you pick this up thinking it will be criminally sexy, think again. Criminally boring is what it is.

I knew I shouldn't have bought this. I mean, I thought volume 1 was meh as hell. But I'm an idiot so I ordered this anyway. Why? Because I liked the concept. You have to admit that the idea of literally freezing time whenever you have sex is pretty cool, right? The idea might be cool but if you don't know what to do with it, it won't get you anywhere. And that's exactly what happened here. Ther

This was great like book one! I like how this one delves a little bit into mental illness and expands the world of our sex police and other timestoppers lol. I liked the first one a little better because there's less relationship angst, but the humor and the weirdness of this is so compelling and I can't wait to read volume 3!

Well, I have done it. I have finally read a graphic novel where I don’t feel comfortable sharing any of the pictures I have been able to find online that accompany the volume. Either the language or visual content is not something I want randomly showing up in my friend’s feed! Now, you might say, “Matthew, were all adults around here, we can take it!” Well, I know I have a variety of followers out there and I want to make sure that I don’t alienate anyone.

So, first of all, that title though!

Second of all, this series is INSANE!

This still includes the same time-stopping orgasms and bank robberies that took precedent in the first installment, but there is also an added depth of emotion that I felt was missing in the previous volume. Whilst still hilarious, this covers topics such as mental health, sexuality and female sexual arousal. This added depth allowed for the characters to display a more raw and real side to them, and for me to empathize wit

This story continues to surprise me. I was really impressed with this volume, for how artfully it entwined so many different important elements.
Was I laughing so hard my sides hurt? Yes.
Was it also insightful, poignant, and real? Surprisingly, yes.
I appreciate how honestly it tackles topics like depression, mental illness, sex-workers, relationships, etc. That's so important, especially in a setting that also manages to be hilarious and incredibly sex-positive at the same time.

Suzie and Jon both have a special superpower: when they orgasm, they can stop time. Then they meet, fall in love, and decide to save Suzie’s library from foreclosure by the bank by robbing said bank of its filthy lucre! And so they ran like the sex criminals they were – in love, robbing the rich to give to the needy, and evading the sex police. A perfect ending!

Or it would’ve been if there wasn’t a Volume 2!

This series is just damn enjoyable. Solid volume with some actual important topics.
Our favorite couple has narrowly escaped Kegel Face and her Sex Police and now they want to lay low, settle down, and just be a regular couple. But like any new couple, the honeymoon phase fades and the real struggle begins!

The fun is over in Sex Criminals and in some ways, I thought the shift in tone was interesting. But it did mean that I enjoyed this volume a little less. I really wanted more time-stopping sex and CumWorld criminal hijinks but instead I got hefty doses of relationship woes an

While the first volume introduces readers to the wacky sensibilities and grueling sexual histories of the protagonist couple Suzie and Jon, the second volume of Sex Criminals entitled Two Worlds, One Cop. delivers a more well-balanced story arc which enhanced my appreciation and enjoyment of this series. It solidified my fan status for what writer and artist Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky respectively have accomplished.

Ha! 'Two Worlds, One Cop'...gets me every time.

Parody titles aside, Sex Criminals quickly develops into a stronger and increasingly mature series that handles some pretty heavy topics. The jokes are still present and just as funny as before (including a brilliant parody of The Wicked + The Divine), but there's also insightful commentary on some serious subject matter. Mental health, medication, therapy and the sex trade are all covered during the course of this volume. It's all handled well and

I really can't say why but I didn't enjoy this one nearly as much as the first.

Also, I've discovered that this is a really weird thing to attempt to read on your lunch break when other people might be able to see the pages. Awk-ward.

Look, it's not porn, I just happen to be reading a very clever graphic novel about time traveling sex maniacs, ok?

No, really, what the hell am I reading?

I like that this discusses depression. I like that Suzie and Jon aren’t automatically super happy forever just because they can both stop time with their orgasms. I like that Jon goes to therapy, and the first therapist doesn’t do him much good, and that the one who does begin to help (and it is only beginning) is idiosyncratically suited to him. That’s the way it works. (I’m not as keen on the exhortation to get out there and exercise ’cause that’ll fix it

I loved the first installment so much that I'm surprised at my feelings on the second. Nothing happened in this volume that truly excited me. The storyline felt a little stalled (even though (view spoiler)), and Jon and Suzie's relationship seems to be the central piece for issues 6-10.

But that aspect wasn't handled as well as I had hoped. One of the things that I really liked about Vol. 1 was how well the relationship was written. It's an interesting

I loved Sex Criminals Volume One. I loved it so much that I ran out after finishing it to buy the second volume because I needed more right away. I wish I could say that I loved volume two as much as I loved volume one... but I didn't. I found volume two to be boring and all over the place. I felt like this volumes issues didn't flow together at all.

Loved it as much as the first volume.

Yes there's still parts where too much talking is happening. I also think sometimes plot advances little too slow.

Now the good part.

Holy hell is this series funny as fuck. Who didn't laugh at the face for Keagleface? Or even better the ass-illuminti line. I fucking lost it. My wife is reading these at the same time as me and just finished volume 3 and we laugh so much in bed you'd think we're fucking insane. It just has too many funny lines.

Shit, as they say, is getting real.

Sex Criminals, Vol. 1 remains one of the funniest, sexiest, most ridiculous things I’ve ever read. That it’s a comic is only a plus. It would have been funny and sexy and touching if it was just words, but Suzie and Jon and their friends really come to life in the colorful, sometimes profane, artwork. (There are also some truly hilarious visual gags as well.) But if One Weird Trick was all about introducing Suzie and Jon and their Special Power, then Two Worlds

I liked this volume a lot!

The previous one was centered around Suzie much more than it was around Jon. And I liked her a lot, while my feelings towards him were very ambiguous. Especially between him as she sees him, and him as he is.

In Volume 2, however, we had the opportunity to spend more time with the "real" Jon, and I started warming up to him more. I enjoyed the first issue of the volume a lot, because it showed his own struggle, his attempts to

4.5 stars.
Some of the sex humor in these comics isn't really my taste, but I appreciate that it's not completely juvenile. There is a lot of humorous commentary on other subjects that had me cackling like a fool though, and I think it will speak to many adults. Sex Criminals is one of my favorite comic series at the moment. I do really adore the way the relationship between the main characters is playing out. It's very realistic, these characters are very realistic. Yay for a sexy lead female c

I liked #1 more, since the first half of #2 is a bit of a miss. Was thinking about DNF'ing it. But the other half is pretty amazing, so I am thinking about picking #3. The sex tips at the end were great, thou.

It's kind of depressing. This one. I didn't sign up for this. Anyway, at least, we learned more about our characters, their past and their present, emotionally.

I like the cliffhanger ending. The fuck.

Recap: Back in Volume 1, Suzie discovered that time stops whenever she orgasms. She thought she was alone until she met Jon. Turns out she wasn’t so alone after all. Because Suzie wanted to save the library, she and Jon concocted this scheme that wasn’t exactly legal- not legal at all actually- and that’s how they became literal sex criminals.

I didn't find this volume to be as hilarious or as adorable as the first. It was less about the relationship between Suzie and Jon and more about the sex cops conflict. I know there has to be some sort of action in the story, it can't just be two people having sex all the time and nothing else, but I guess I found the whole Bonnie and Clyde/bank robbing thing of the first volume more interesting. But it still made me laugh, sometimes because of the characters and sometimes becaus
Don't get me wrong. I love these graphic novels and will be hunting down the next volume pronto. However, the back matter for this one included a faux interview with the authors, where they congratulate themselves for being so brave to write stories with sex in them. Like, it's such an important part of people's lives, and why isn't it part of more stories, and why do people think their comic is dirty just because they dare to write about sex. If they were talking about just comics, I might let ...more

Nowhere near the fun or world-changing mysteries or frenetic pacing of the first volume.

Instead there’s introspective monologues on the nature of mental illness, then a bunch of antics around how they’ll amp up the tension, and some new and abrasive (Matt Fraction’s word, not mine) characters.

It’s like the refractory period (for guys anyway) where the world seems calmer, less interesting and a little scary again. (First volume was the insane, sweaty, terrifying buildup to new sex and or

I recently attended Toronto comicon earlier this month and after reading Sex Criminals Volume 1, I was on the hunt for Sex Criminals Volume 2. I read the first volume last year and I loved it. It was my first graphic novel in quite a long time and it sparked my interest in getting back in to the graphic novel world. I had given the first Volume a 5 star rating and it ended with a bit of a cliffhanger so I was super eager to get my hands on volume 2. I could have easily purchased it through the C ...more

"How he got started in comics: In 1983, when Fraction was 7 years old and growing up in Kansas City, Mo., he became fascinated by the U.S. invasion of Grenada and created his own newspaper to explain the event. "I've always been story-driven, telling stories with pictures and words," he said.

Education and first job: Fraction never graduated from college. He stopped half a semester short of an art
