    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Oct 8, 2014

    So much is at play in this issue as Matt and Chip continually build upon this world that once seemed wacky and is now all too real. Don't worry: the laughs are still there. And remember, we don't know how Sexual Gary feels about drugs, but he definitely says “No” to AIDS. Read Full Review

    Sex Criminals #8 is still extending the world for the series going forward. Still as well-written and beautifully-illustrated as before. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Adam Whitmer Oct 11, 2014

    Fraction is arguably one of the best writers in comics today, and Sex Criminals is the best example of why that may very well be the case. He, with the ever consistent Chip Zdarsky, have crafted the single greatest representation of modern relationships in our increasingly sex positive culture. Weaving sexual health facts pulled directly from Planned Parenthood, drama and laugh out loud humor in the perfect respective amounts equates to the most personal and realistic, outside of the time spent in Cumworld, book on the shelves today. It's one that not only can, but should be read with a partner. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Patrick Ross Oct 7, 2014

    Sex Criminals continues to hit it out of the park, impressing with another issue that's all at once heart-wrenching yet hilarious, flippant yet suspenseful, and visually beautiful to boot. If you haven't hopped on the bandwagon yet, all aboard the next train to Cumworld! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Oct 13, 2014

    Eight issues in, "Sex Criminals" is going strong. Fraction and Zdarsky have created a book in which the unexpected is always right around the corner, but somehow in a fluid natural way that's emotionally resonant and fulfilling, even while you're laughing your ass off. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Lindsey Bass Oct 8, 2014

    Sex Criminals is a book I continue to enjoy with each issue. Im never really sure what to expect each time I open it up. Fraction always manages to make me laugh at things most would find inappropriate. Then again my mind lives in the gutter more often than not. This issue wasn't what I expected in comparison to previous releases. The ending really caught me off guard and is a great cliffhanger. Im sure Fraction has something big in store for us.

    If you've been reading this book regularly, you're aware of the madness that is Sex Criminals, and you might expect that there aren't any surprises left in their bag of tricks. You (and, to be honest, I) would be wrong" Sex Criminals #8 is a great balance of funny, awkward, sad and touching, with a smidgen of heartbreak to spice it all up. Read Full Review
