Why can't we all just get along? Because then the comic would be boring.

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Feb 17, 2016

    What, you want me to tell you that Zdarsky does his damn thing yet again? Has he ever not done his job? No, because the man is tag-team partners with Matt Fraction for a fucking reason. This creative team is the World Tag Champs in the comic book industry as far as I am concerned. Zdarsky's artwork reflects how this book continually outdoes itself. Sex Criminals is Diamond Dallas Page back in WCW saying there are over 150+ ways to hit his Diamond Cutter finisher, and we're going through each and every way, and gasping at their difficulty and innovation. That's what the fuck this book is. I'M DONE. I CAN'T EVEN TALK ABOUT THIS ANYMORE. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Feb 18, 2016

    In the end, this issue, and Sex Criminals as whole, probably, exploresthe idea that there isn't such a thing as normal or deviant. That we're all deviants because no one is the same, and therefore “normal” in terms of sexuality or gender or identification has no meaning. And yet, as I said, balls-deep funny. Hey, guys, don't stay away for four months again. Or do. It's your book. Read Full Review

    At some point the main story will have to kick back into gear, but so long as the asides remain this brilliant, we're content to sit back and enjoy. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Feb 22, 2016

    "Sex Criminals" #14 is a comic that plays with format and structure but never loses sight of telling a story that's both interesting and genuinely fun to read. What other title would create a recap page by reprinting its Wikipedia entry, after all? Once again, money well spent; "Sex Criminals" is a book that never disappoints. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 19, 2016

    Sex Criminals is the type of book that keeps stretching and growing - artistically speaking - and that makes it one of the most forward-thinking books on the stands. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Ashley Leckwold Feb 18, 2016

    If youre having a hard time with the latest Sex Criminals at first pass, give it another read and see how it all ties together. What comes across as disjointed at first actually has a strange sort of clearness once the thread that ties it all together becomes clear. This book has always been about vulnerability and to see it upfront and hysterically done is kind of amazing. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Patrick Ross Feb 16, 2016

    Funny moments? Check. Biting wit? Check. Expressive, emotive artwork, including requisite hypersexual closeups? Double check. Combine these Sex Criminals standards with an insane meta chapter featuring the creative team themselves and a little bit of plot, and you have a recipe for another issue of this series that shouldn't be missed.

    Comicsverse - Kara Waltersdorff Feb 18, 2016

    Along with the story, the art is stunning. Chip Zdarskycomplements Fraction's writing with his illustrations, using color in such a unique, beautiful way. Zdarsky'sillustrations add dimension to serious moments, jokes, and even makes jokes of its own. There are so many small, hidden touches to be found in the background of panels. Color is used in such a way that, most of the time, when Jon and Suzie are moving through time at a normal pace it is more muted and soft, while when they freeze time it's beautiful, colorful, and vibrant.

    Tremendous, tremendous artwork and Chip's self-portrayal is dangerously genius. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz Feb 22, 2016

    Sex Criminals can be ridiculous and crude and sometimes offensive, but it always delivers in humor with great storytelling. The book is continuing to adapt and find new ways to have fun telling a ridiculous story about two people who have magical powers associated with having sex who then rob banks. Sex Criminals is such a fun ride each month, and seeing how Fraction and Zdarsky started off this year it looks like they have a lot to live up to in the coming months. Read Full Review
