Sex Criminals by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky may have led the way to a whole new level of fandom, with nesting infinite covers, and something called brimping, but it ships on an irregular schedule. Absent since #20 in August, the series comes roaring back next month with a new issue and a new arc! And new partners it sounds like.
Up is down and black is white and the sex isn’t happening and neither is the crime. What is this book even, you guys?!
After the heartbreaking, albeit totally unsurprising, breakup in Fourgy!, our leads find themselves apart and in the arms of others while the fate of the whole universe hangs in the balance…ish.
Who can tell where they’ll go from here? Maybe it’s these dudes:
“Proud to be back doing what I do best: painstakingly tracing SAVAGE DRAGON pages, putting more clothes on the characters, and repurposing them for our book,” said Zdarsky. “Happy to be back, living up to my back tattoo that says ‘LUV 2 DRAW COMPLEX RELATIONSHIPS AND FLUIDS’”
Fraction added: “Happy new year, happy new SEX CRIMINALS storyline! Happy to be giving Chip more complex relationships and fluids to draw.”
