I’ve typed the words Sex Criminals so many times today I’m fairly certain the NSA is monitoring me now.
My dear friend Kirsten over at As It Ought to Be asked me to cover some fringe literary reviews for her, and of course, we both know Tini’s favorite kind of ‘fringe’ literature – comic books! I picked Matt Fraction’s Sex Criminals for my first review, as it’s literally my favorite book of the year. Check it out!
Comics are a brave medium through which to tell an adult story. While some of us know of Alan Moore’s Watchmen as comic literature and saw Chris Nolan turn Batman into Oscar bait, for plenty of people comic books still bring to mind stunted writers and readers who can’t handle real books.
The Sex Criminals series, written by Marvel veteran Matt Fraction and with art by Chip Zdarsky, is a real book.
