    SEX CRIMINALS #17 has some of Matt Fraction's funniest writing, and the artwork of Chip Zdarsky is as on point as ever. The characterization of Kegelface is great, and the story being told from her perspective is a solid change of pace. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 18, 2017

    As always, the caveat that it's not going to be everyone's cup of tea is in place, and also my warning that it's not for the under-18 set, but Sex Criminals #17 is fascinating, icky, charismatic, lovely, infuriating and flippant in all the right ways, and makes me happy that a book this unconventional has found a publisher and a willing audience.

    I continue to be impressed with the quality output from Fraction. Well into its fourth arc the stories continue to be captivating and show promise for what's to come. Reminder that these are not for the faint of heart or easily offended but they're definitely worth a read if you're looking for something outside of the super hero norm. Read Full Review

    Sex Criminals is never not good, and issue #17 is no exception. However, readers who were looking forward to really hunkering down with the series' main characters may be a bit disappointed. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Mar 17, 2017

    The story blends action and irreverence with humor. My biggest complaint is that the writers have a tendency to intrude in the narrative just a little too much. WE GET IT! We wouldn't be here otherwise. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - TalkNerdy2Me Mar 15, 2017

    What I'm hoping for is an eventual showdown of sorts between Kegelface and her minions and Jon and Suzie. In the meantime, it looks like we're going to have to settle for the invasion of the creepy little sex trolls. I just hope they don't stick around for too long. Read Full Review
