I’ve bee waiting for this series ever since I first heard about it. It has Matt Fraction (who I LOVE from Hawkeye, Fantastic Four, and The Defenders) and it has a ridiculously fun sounding premise.

Suzie has a secret. When she has sex, she stops time. She’s alone with this secret until she meets John, a young man with the same “gift.” In the new Image Comics series SEX CRIMINALS by Matt Fraction (SATELLITE SAM) and Chip Zdarsky, Suzie and John embark on a journey of self-discovery, intimacy, and… well, actually, they do what every time-stops-when-you-have-sex couple would do: They rob banks.

WHAT?!? Sounds incredible. And they’ve finally released some artwork which looks great. Here’s how the artist describes it:

“I’m trying to make pages feel like candy, so you want to eat them, but also maybe sleep with them?” he said. “I wanted it to look as fun as it sounds: a bright, punchy book. ‘Adult’ is too synonymous with ‘dark’ in comics and I think Matt and I want to make sex fun again … in the book … just … just in the book. Sex should be dark drudgery in real life.”

It’s coming out on 4 September! But it’s time for your shop to order it NOW! So put it on your pull list if you want it in physical form! Below is the cover as well as a few preview pages. ENJOY!
