    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Nov 1, 2013

    For a book that started out erring a little on the side of the mundane, “Sex” is anything but that at this point. “Sex” #8, in particular, is one of the finest comics this year as far as pure subtextuality goes. By the time Casey and Kowalski are done, “Sex” 1-8 feels like a finished, polished work – even if few of our questions have found answers. The revelations within are entirely character based, and incredibly satisfying. There's more “Sex” to come, and while issue #8 is not a place to start reading – it does serve to validate everything that has come before it, and secures its place as one of the most interesting projects in comics.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Oct 30, 2013

    Sex #8 is chock full of explicit sex from both the well off and the underbelly of the city. But you need to look closer as this issue offers something much more satisfying in the resurrection of Simon's state of mind and character. It'll be interesting to see where the story goes from here. I stated ad nauseum that Sex is as emotional satisfying as it is titillating but look closer and you'll find a story with as much soul as it does sex. A highly effective end to this story arc and played out with great skill by Casey and Kowalski. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Oct 30, 2013

    This first arc of Sex was much like its name with plenty of tension and build-up, and once you read this issue you are excited for a big release. Whether Casey decides to give it to you right away or keep building up tension with literate foreplay is up to him but he does a great job of leaving you feeling satisfied but also wanting more with this arc. Anyone who dismissed this series based on the title should really think of revisiting this because there is a beautiful and deep story in there that most people could find some joy in.

    Comics Bulletin - Keith Silva Nov 5, 2013

    As creators, what Kowalski, Casey and Simpson love is pillow talk, which is perfect for a comic called Sex. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ricardo Guajardo Oct 30, 2013

    The art in Sex is detailed abd fine but it feels a little bland and safe. For some strange reason I feel there is a joke lost somewhere that there is too much detail in this issue. The colors are are pretty good and can bring a lot of personality to a somehow dull issue. I feel bad for the creative team as I have given the book praise in the past but it seems that this issue missed some potential in terms of where it can be taken. Combine that with a feeling of confusion after finish reading this issue left a bad impression afterwards. I suppose you can say this series to starting to feel like the main character where nothing seems interesting despite the crazy cast and surroundings of the book. Read Full Review
