Thumbs up for Sex Criminals, Volume 1: One Weird Trick by Matt Fraction, illustrated by Chip Zdarsky. Fantasy/graphic novel.
Well, that was a weird trick indeed. Sex Criminals is about a woman who can stop time when she has an orgasm. She meets a man who can do the same. Love follows. Then, bank robbery…. Not the sort of thing I would have picked up on my own, except that it was in the Hugo voters’ packet. Good art, a clever concept used well, and some very funny parts kept me entertained. That said, the characters were pretty flat. I might read Volume 2 if it crosses my path but I won’t seek it out.
