Reviews Sex Criminals, Vol. 4

  • Kevin
    It's slightly meandering at this point, but still such a great comic. I'm enjoying all the new(er) secondary characters, and the trajectories they're heading toward.Also, Matt and Chip actually published five comics in six consecutive months, after the one issue that came out last year, I'm super proud of them.

    This comic. This fucking comic. Sex Crimz is back on form with the brilliantly titled Volume 4: Fourgy!Story-wise there isn’t much happening and that’s my only complaint about this book. Essentially it’s still Sex Criminals vs Sex Cops but there’s barely any conflict between them here. Kegelface fucks with Ana’s teaching job and… that’s it.But that doesn’t mean it’s a slow read either because the character stuff is really good. ...

    Sex Crimbos are back!.. But, unfortunately, not quite with a bang (hehe, bang).Jon and Suzie keep having troubles in their relationship, the shrink (Doug? Dave?) finds a new love interest, Ana Kincaid goes to a porn convention to make a quick (and embarrassing) buck, Kegelface is still Kegelface, and there's a new cum-time-stopper in town. In other words, we have a filler volume! It does pick up the pace and goes heavy on the emotions close to th...

    Nothing happens in this thing. It's like one long masturbatory session (which I guess is appropriate given the series) where Fraction tries to draw the story out as much as he can. The series has definitely lost the spark of the first year of stories. Chip Zdarsky's detailed panels almost make up for the lack of story though. His art is consistently fantastic.
  • Chris
    On one hand, I still love Sex Criminals. When it's good, it's really good and still has that special something that made the series one of my favourites to begin with. On the other hand, Fourgy (heh, 'Fourgy') is the second slightly-disappointing volume in a row and i'm worried that the spark may be fading.Chip Zdarksy's artwork and Matt Fraction's characterisation are still great and I know i'm so invested that i'll continue reading in spite of ...
  • Anthony
    Delays are hurting this a bit, especially since I'm reading it in singles, but I still enjoy it whenever it does come out. This is more "serious" and less funny arc, shit is getting real for the characters. It's still good though.
  • Zedsdead
    Every time a new volume comes out, I'm dubious because I remember how weird the last volume got. And then every time I'm freshly blown away by how smart and entertaining this title is.The clever references (see Brubaker's "Criminal" cover), the montages (Anna's excruciating 80-mini-panel beauty routine), the unusual but intuitive use of the medium (reverse silhouettes to display a series of happy memories). Fraction and Zdarsky kill. Plot points:...
  • Julie Ehlers
    Not much happened to move the main plot forward, but it's still interesting, and it seems that some intriguing stuff is being set up for next time, so I'm still on board.
  • Chris Lemmerman
    Phew, that was heavy. Sex Criminals gets super-real as Suzie and Jon face up to their feelings for each other (and lack thereof), while Dr. Kincaid and Jon's psychiatrist grow closer, Kegelface makes her move, and another new Sex Criminal makes himself known in the weirdest way possible.What began as a silly little book that didn't take itself too seriously has taken a very dark, but natural, turn and this volume is the next in the logical progre...
  • Ashley
    A character in this wears a "Pobody's Nerfect" t-shirt*, and that was the thing I was most amused by, so that should tell you my overall feelings about it, if the rating hasn't already. *PSA: Watch The Good Place. It is a damn delight.This is the first volume of this series that I haven't really enjoyed in full. Parts of it were engaging but mostly I found it depressing and uninteresting. That may be just me right now, or it might be the series h...
