Review of "Sex Criminals Volume One: One Weird Trick," by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky

 Review of

Sex Criminals Volume One: One Weird Trick, by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky ISBN 9781607069461

Five out of five stars

Bizarre consequences of sex

 The premise of this graphic novel is not exactly what the title suggests. The two main characters, Suzie and Jon have many problems. From fitting into society to their jobs to their outlook on life. Yet, they have one asset that is truly unique. When Suzie has sex, the world, except for her and Jon, comes to a standstill.

 Blessed with this advantage, they do what many people in their social positions would do, rob banks. Therefore, they use their sexual powers to commit ordinary and not sex crimes. Although there are two difficulties. Having sex on the premises and making sure they complete their unorthodox withdrawals before the world starts back up again. The first proves to be easier than the second.

 This is truly an unusual comic series, there are some unique supporting characters where the reader is uncertain as to what their roles are. They are clad in white and seem to take the role of overseers that make sure that Suzie and Jon don’t wander too far off the path of legality.

 Unusual and nonlinear, this was a fun graphic novel to read, in a world where comics have strange plot lines, this is one of the weirdest, but in a fun way.
