This Batman issue is just absurd, it's boring, and it doesn't move the story along at all. I'm almost to the point where I'm going to stop reading the main Batman book. My completionist OCD won't let me quit buying them but I'll just bag and board them for my collection.

Wow what an unbelievably beautiful and moving piece of art. First off it must be said there is ALOT to read in this "comic", but if you're willing to invest the time it takes to read it its an amazing journey. The writing in both the prose and comic sections are fantastic. Really giving you a very strong connection with Jonah and his battle to overcome his anxieties and fears. The art from Lemire more

This arc. This f&@$ing arc. I have been in denial regarding Jon & Suzie for the entirety of this arc, I didn't like where it was going and tried to convince myself that it wasn't going there. That is part of what makes Sex Criminals such a fantastic book; few books make me care about the characters as much as this one.
