    I liked this a lot better than the last one, which made me feel like the series was starting to become aimless and no fun. It's still not as purely fun here as it was in the first two volumes, but a lot of things were course corrected, and the last couple of pages were great. Suzie...

    This was quite weird even for this series. But I have grown very fond of Jon and Suzy and I will miss them when it's all over. ...

    Man, this is actually breaking my brain and my heart. For all of the wildcard silliness, this meditation on how even seemingly healthy relationships can be doomed by weird insecurities is messing me up good. ...

    Spoilers ahead (basically a plot summary so I can remember) -Jon and Suzie are broken up. Suzie moves so she can take a job at a new library. She is dating a guy whose name I can't remember because he is super boring and lame. Jon is dating a woman but they are in an open relationship...

    At this point in the relationship, we know what to expect fromSex Criminals - lots of sex and drawings of penises, but also, some vaguely meaningful commentary on relationships and intimacy. And even when we don't get either of those things, we're getting hilarious visual gags and ...

    Here is the thing about Fraction and Zdarsky's SEX CRIMINALS. . . I like it, but I sometimes get the feeling that it wants me to root for Jon and Suzy to be together. . . but they are awful for each other and I'd rather read about them as exes than a couple. So the romantic reunion ...

    I don't know, man. I still love the art and humor of Sex Criminals, but I have absolutely no idea what's going on in this volume. The back cover tells me that Suzie and Jon have broken up - I remembered that much at least from previous volumes. But now there are dozens of other charact...

    Jon and Suze have broken up. She?s moved back to her mom?s place only to discover her mother?s gotten wayyyy too sexual in her retirement, while he?s moved in with a bisexual lady who he?s in an open relationship with. So they?re both still messes! Meanwhile the villainous ...

    I honestly had no recollection going into this as to what happened in the last collection, so that may have impacted my enjoyment of this volume. Or maybe the story has gotten so meandering and convoluted that I can't keep track of what's going on, anyway. (Not that there was much stor...

    WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED WITH THE HUMOR IN THIS COMIC BOOK? This use to be hilarious, but now it's painfully slow and not funny at all. There's a few jokes here and there, but it's background stuff. I hate to admit this, but I'm only reading this comic book to see naked people these days...

    I have NO IDEA what is going on in Sex Criminals, Vol. 5: Five Fingered Discount. ** Spoilers ahead ** Of course, I don't remember what happened in Fourgy either but how did Jon end up in Cumworld? There are so many bizarre, unbelievable subplots that make absolutely no se...

    Ugh, a whole volume dedicated to Jon and Suzie moping after their breakup just so they can get back together? That's rom-com trite and predictable. The writing is still razor sharp but I thought Fraction and Zdarsky were better than this. ...

    I have to be honest at this point I think I just keep going on with this series, because I want to finish it rather than getting any enjoyment from it. I honestly have no idea what was going on in this one. I don't remember how all these characters are connected. Remember when it was j...

    I'm confident that the story would have been better without the magical elements. I know that's sort of the "point", the gimmick of it, but I find it to be the weakest element. The plot with the sex police has been awful for the last three volumes. I wish we could just strip the narrat...

    Uuuh, so I guess Sex Criminals sucks now? It's been rocky for a few volumes, but this one right here has robbed all of the momentum for me. I've been struggling to remember what happened last time, what I'm supposed to know, what I'm not. I keep waiting for some huge reveal but instead...

    This series keeps devolving further and further into utter strangeness, but I will never stop reading. The story in this volume wasn?t all that compelling, imo, but it?s so witty and funny. ...

    I had to make sure that I've put that I read this series on Goodreads, and I have been, so here we go! Sex Criminals Vol. 5. This is the penultimate volume and seems to be building towards a big bad. I wasn't sure there was a big bad in this series, but oh well. Things must escalate...

    For a volume that amounts to a make-up/make-out session that everyone saw coming, I was still into this. While the book has left behind a lot of its immaturity, for better or worse, it?s become a more interesting look at relationships and why people suck at them. Jon?s breakup with...

    It was funny reading at work with constant fear of that somebody could take a look at my screen, finding out I?m reading something called ?Sex Criminals? instead of working. But meh, I needed to know how story continued after long time. Why did I even do that.... I really lik...

    Sex Criminals keeps being one of my all-time favourite comics, and this new (penultimate!) volume may easily be the best one yet since volume 2. Not much to say without spoiling stuff, but characters go through some very sincere emotional experiences that have been building up towards ...

    I hate to say it, but I'm starting to lose the thread a bit with this series. There are so many characters right now, and Fraction seems less interested in pushing a specific plotline forward than in mashing them up in different combinations and seeing what happens. I have great affect...

    Fraction and Zdasrsky always manage to produce beautiful human narratives in these books, and Volume 5 reminded why I enjoy this series so much. That's not to say that this volume was perfect the pace was at times too meandering, and, much like previous two volumes, by the end I was le...

    Sex Criminals has long been one of my favorite series from Image Comics, managing to be both a wonderful story about sex and relationships while also a hilarious adventure fic about two lovers who literally stop time when they orgasm. The fifth installment in the series, Five-Fingered ...

    This one was all right, but it's also been long enough since I read the others that I've totally forgotten the powers of all the characters except the main ones, and them using their powers in this volume did not make any clearer what those powers actually were. I had also completely f...

    So you've just blown a load. It's all over the place. You don't know what to do with yourself. And then your mum walks in. She's waiting for a response. So what do you do? You start dancing. You pull an Ashlee Simpson from that SNL act and start frantically dancing like the dopi...

    I forgot to rate this one, so I had a lot of time in-between to think (and to forget the details). For me, Sex Criminals needn't be that horrible. But sadly, it's a mixture of disparate elements. Comedy, drama, satire, parody, action (and none of them actually match the other), art tha...

    Its a new direction for our heroes and boy are they a mess. After building Jon and Suzie's relationship for four volumes, we get to explore their lives with the absence of each other as they try to navigate mundane tasks like work, home life, and ultimately moving on. All with plen...
