What does /co/ think of Sex Criminals?
>>
>Boring, one-on-one sex between a hot chick and a nerd
>>
It feels like it's written by people who think they discovered non-conventional sex between heterosexual couples.
>>
>>77818871

It's a comic about a taboo subject so it's automatically hailed as the god's gift to picture books despite it not being interesting or funny at all.

Fraction and Zdarsky are hacks.

It's alright, it has its charm.
Why do you care what we think anyway?
>>
>>77819138
This qt I know really likes it and I read up to the part in the first one where she finds the other dude who can stop time with orgasms and I wasn't digging it.
>>
>>77818884
there's an imaginary gangbang in one of the later issues (13 I want to say?)
>>
It's what Tumblr thinks sex is really like
>>
>>77818871
It's awful but it's like there's not much you can say about it now that ODY-C's out. Sorta makes you pine for the days when Sex Criminals was the worst comic Fraction's ever written.
>>
The main character recites one of the most known and quote passages in Lolita to show the woman (and the readers) how much of an intellectual and well navigated reader he is.

It's shit.

>this is also really exciting, you guys, we're so breaking the rules and being liberated and shit
I'm really not a fan. It's not an outright terrible read, but it's pretty bland and boring over all.
>>
I find it inherently funny that a story literally all about sex still has to tiptoe around actually directly portraying sex.
I think I recall seeing a vaguely obscured erection at one point in the first volume, does it ever get more daring than that?
>>
I should have been a mini.

It's fucking boring. Like most of Fraction's work. The art is kinda charming but not really that good. Overall it's the comics equivalent of soggy white bread.

also these.

Sex Criminals, like most of the garbage that Fraction and Zdarsky work on, tries so very hard to be the quirkiest quirk quirky comic that ever quirked. They are the male comics equivalent of someone like Felicia Day. They make me want to vomit.
>>
the beginning of the story where the protagonist is just finding out about her powers is cool
when they introduced her boyfriend, the story took a dive and I dropped it
>>
Neat concept, overstayed its welcome.
>>
>>77818871

All of these motherfuckers are wrong. Sex Criminals is really good. Is it the best thing Fraction's ever written? Fuck no, that's Casanova now and likely forever. Is it the worst thing he's written? No, that's Satellite Sam.

What it is is a very good exploration of sex and relationships, with some really good jokes and the ability to give you a gut punch when you least expect it. It's an 8/10 for me.
>>
>>77821363
Fuck off Fraction. Go back to watching your wife have sex with other men.
>>
>>77821363
>What it is is a very good exploration of sex and relationships
Yeah no, that's bullshit.
>>
>>77821391

If I WAS Fraction, would I really call my work an 8/10?
>>
>>77821141
there's full-on nudity, including jizzing cocks
>>
I thought the first issue was cute and enjoyable and am honestly baffled as to why /co/ hates it so much.

Probably because it involves people being happy and having sex.

or this:

>>77821391

Is calling everyone you dislike "kek" a /co/ thing too, now, or are there actual stories about Fraction suggesting he's a kek?
>>
>>77821396

elaborate
>>
Pretty solid. The stuff about depression hits super close which I enjoy. I think it's finding it's feet once Fraction/Zdarsky realized it wouldn't be a one and done mini so the lore stuff is shaky but getting there character work makes up for the shortcomings

I also only read it in trades
>>
>>77821511
>The stuff about depression hits super close
Then you don't actually have depression, just Tumblritis. I know this might sound like an attack on your oh so precious snowflake quality, but trust me, it's a load off your shoulder.
>>
>>77821530

oh damn all those doctors are wrong and all the medicine I tried before finding something that worked were just shitty placebos I guess!
>>
>>77821563
Yup! That and being a lazy attention whore.

wow thanks doctor 4chan

You're welcome, try to get a degree in an employable field, please get regular exercise and don't bother watching children cartoons, cape comics or any other form of Tumblrbait.

Do you awkwardly insert tumblr into other threads or just ones involving Fraction?

You're wrong and he's not using a trip but at the same time quints.

The book repeatedly tells me that sex and love are amazing.
I already know that though and kindly expect it to get over it already.
It refuses to and I get really fucking tired of it really fucking fast.
It probably would've helped if the characters or the story were interesting in any capacity. But they are just normal guy and normal girl and even when the plot tries to get quirky later on it still seems hollow as hell.
