So when Fraction mentions in the "Fat Bottomed Girls" lyrics cover-up that "we've now hit our male lead in the face with a dildo", I assumed they meant Jon and Suzie's playful romp around Cumworld (the store, not that thing they do), but by the final page I was no longer sure. That's the whimsical genius of Sex Criminals: I'm not sure which time Jon gets hit in the face with a dildo Fraction's ac more

How did these two end up in that bank, with those guns? Because they seemed like such nice kids, right? Well, THE SEX POLICE have the same questions and descend on Susie and Jon. And we get the rest of Jon's gory story - if you read ONE weird sex and time comedy comic this year, make sure it's "My Sexual Errors 1998 - Present!"

8.0

Lemire's sci-fi love story continues to experiment with the physical and formal structures of the medium. "Starcrossed" employs a beautiful combination of juxtaposition and symmetry, the two stories colliding mid-page, visual and narrative mirrors of one another, as each protagonist is imposed into an alternate version of the other's world. Nika wakes in a Zeppelin-riddled early 20th-century Lon more

I suppose the most suitable place to begin Seeley's latest taut issue of Revival is Frison's eerie cover portrait of Em Cypress, one of her most extraordinary in an already outstanding sequence for the title. It's a sly echo of John Everett Millais' painting of drowned Ophelia, a beautiful, haunting elegy to vulnerability and mental fragility through tragedy's most famous female victim. It's als more
