Simon Cooke's night out has disastrous consequences! And not just socially. But, hey, at least he's trying! Meanwhile, life in Saturn City's criminal underworld rolls on... just not as smoothly as expected. Never forget: SEX is real! SEX is now! But, most importantly, SEX has infected your local comic book store!

    This is as slow as slow burns go. That's not entirely a bad thing, but don't expect there to be much forward momentum. If you're not mesmerized by the sex and the art (like I am), then you'll likely find this a dry affair. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Aug 4, 2013

    Sex is a pornographic soap opera, moving along an inch at a time and only teasing us with something bigger to come. Perhaps when it is finally all in place, we'll be able to see if these few extra inches make all the difference. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ed Allen Jul 31, 2013

    Regardless of my personal issues, this is an undeniably unique and well-made comic and I would recommend that anyone who hasn't already tried Sex should make a point of doing so this week. The story might move slowly but with Kowalski's art and Simpson's colors it's a feast for the eyes and if it tempts you into reading some Milo Manara or Moebius comics then, if nothing else, it will have done a valuable public service.

    This series continues to have me wavering between love and hate on the writing side of the ball, but at least there is Piotr Kowalski's art to look at. Regardless of how you feel about the story, you can't deny the fact that Kowalski's art is compelling to say the least. The grandeur of Saturn City, the very spectacle of her skyscrapers and the dirty grit of her slums are evident on every page. Mix in Brad Simpson's fantastic color art and you have a visual package that is worthy of an all-star title, butSexjust hasn't reached its full potential yet. Read Full Review
