Time Magazine awarded Sex Criminals (2013; Image Comics) by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky the number one spot in its list of Top Ten Comics and Graphic Novels of 2013, and there are plenty of good reasons why.
In 2014, Sex Criminals won an Eisner Award for Best New Series, and there are plenty of good reasons why.
In 2015, Universal TV announced it had optioned Sex Criminals for a series, and there are plenty of good reasons why.
I just finished glomming issues 1-10 of Sex Criminals and—wait for it!—there are plenty of good reasons why.
The number one reason is the premise: A couple gains the power to stop time when they orgasm.
When I first heard about this comic, I was a bit wary. Its high concept premise sounded pretty gimmicky. And it is gimmicky—there's no way around that fact. Sex sells, eh? Despite my misgivings, the gimmicky angle plus my interest in science fiction romance and superhuman stories made it a foregone conclusion that I'd read it. When I became the happy owner of a tablet, and thus able to order the series digitally from comiXology, I took the plunge.
