    This book. This fucking book. I was never going to be prepared for it to end. And I mean it when I say this was the perfect ending for one of the best comics of all time. It taught me a lot, it made me laugh, it damn near made me cry, and it made me feel less alone and more at peace with myself and with the world. And that’s not to mention Letter Daddies, the absolute best letter column of all time, which made me go through a roller coaster of emotions every time all on its own. I will always mis This book.

    "Billy Pilgrim has come unstuck in time." Oh wait, that's something else. Let me try again. "Suze has come unstuck in time." That's better. Sex criminals started in volume 1 with people who could stop time when orgasming, and rob banks and poop in plants while the world is frozen. Round about volume 3 it veered into something different and weird. I never liked it as much after that. But the love story at the core is very touching, realistic and mature, despite the craziness all around it. "Billy Pilgrim has come unstuck in time." Oh wait, that's something else. Let me try again.

    So it comes to a end. I remember reading this like 10 years ago now haha. So I'm just going to cut out most of what it is about because it's major spoilers. Just know it has a lot to do with time travel, why they have this power, and what happens after it is gone. That's the majority of this book. The last issue is kind of the final cap on it all as it jumps ahead years and we see all our characters and where they are in life. And see, the last issue is actually really solid.

Made me laugh, made me smile, and the ending felt perfect. But the actual plot, the bad guy, the overuse of sexual things to put funny situations but weren't that funny is there. I mean there's still al ot of funny parts, but the whole evil guy who don't give a fuck, is boring here. But overall the series ends solid enough. Nothing compared to its first 3 volumes but I enjoyed it none the less. A 3 out of 5.

While sex and humour plays an important role in this series, the real focus of the series are on relationships and sexuality. The sci-fi element was featured most prominently at the beginning of the story. Don't expect to see the crazy time loops in Paper Girls. I would categorise this as sci-fi lite. What drew me to this series was the original wacky concept and the juvenile humour. From plant pooping to the sexified background signage. Every volume introduced something new that plays with the reader's expectations. What kept me reading is the relationship between Suzie and Jon. They are so adorable. Despite their "superpower", the writer did a great job at portraying these characters with real issues and relatable flaws. The awkwardness of stepping into puberty, learning about sex from unreliable sources were handled with sensitivity and humour. The way the writer addresses the issues of mental illness and depression were appreciated by readers in the letters column. The supporting cast range from sex worker to psychiatrist, all with their own interesting back story. My only gripe about this series is the Sex Police storyline. Pick this up if you are of legal age and appreciate well written adult comics like Saga and Ex Machina.

    i didn't cry though i wanted to, and perhaps I didn't cry because it's been ages since I read the last volume. I really loved these characters. Not just Jon and Suzie, but all of them. And while the happy ending wasn't a happy ending (ya, I went there), it was fitting. Fraction, Zdrasky, you all own a sliver of my heart and I will remember Dick Duck forever. i didn't cry though i wanted to, and perhaps I didn't cry because it's been ages since I read the last volume.

    It was definitely bittersweet finishing this, as I did really love a majority of the series, but this one is just an out of control, bonkers mess. But at least things got tied up lol

    A very satisfying conclusion to a really fun series. I had a few niggles but mostly I just went "awwwww" a lot. A very satisfying conclusion to a really fun series. I had a few niggles but mostly I just went "awwwww" a lot.

    Weird meta pop-psych ending completely unrelated to the story as told at the start.

    I could ask myself what happened to this series, but I think the more appropriate question to ask if what happened to Matt Fraction? Either he started to care less and less as the series progressed and wrapped up, or, and I'm honestly leaning more towards this explanation, the dude has been in a depressive state for some time that's only gotten worse--hence resulting in this volume that in no way resembles the first two to three volumes (when you actually got a sense he cared and was invested in I could ask myself what happened to this series, but I think the more appropriate question to ask if what happened to Matt Fraction?

I mean, just consider how the letters column, the faux interviews, the ephemera, whathaveyou, just increasingly shrunk with each volume--until the last two volumes had zilch. I would proffer that there is a positive correlation between the "bonus" material and the quality of this series' downslide. I ended up getting the first volume for my library because I saw it was on all these banned books lists one year. I read it and I fell in love with it--here was this comic that was both sex positive and library positive? It was like it was made for me. Plus, it was funny and clever. Unfortunately, keyword there being "was." Cracks started to show as the series progressed; the plot became more strained and contrived; jumps in time came off more lazy than serving per storytelling; and yes, it became increasingly less funny and clever, in both regards. If Matt Fraction could have stayed invested (and I don't want to sound like I'm blaming him for losing a personal investment in the series--because I'm honestly inferring that this was due to a deep depression, which is not his fault if so), and this series could have stuck with the original premise, then it could have been funny and clever for however long Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky wanted to do it. However, as Fraction stretched the story to its breaking point several times over during the course of the series, with contrived developments and twists--it honestly could have benefitted from having a statement made by the series, a point to all of this. But it never had one, and that's a bummer because the series really suffers for it. If Fraction did indeed slip into a deep depression that affected this series, I wish I knew what he had hoped to say with Sex Criminals before his depression ultimately enveloped him and his work.

    I can’t believe it’s over. This was one of my first forays into indie comics, which is fucking hilarious cause who tf decides to pick up a comic book called Sex Criminals as a beginner comic? Apparently I do. I will forever be grateful to Matt and Chip for writing this masterpiece. In between all of the dick jokes and sex puns that are literally everywhere, even in the fine details like fake movie and book titles, they gave me one of the realest relationships I have had the pleasure of reading.

In between all of the dick jokes and sex puns that are literally everywhere, even in the fine details like fake movie and book titles, they gave me one of the realest relationships I have had the pleasure of reading. Jon and Suzie are like nothing else. I love them so much. I love how much they love each other. The lengths they went to for one another. What they did when they were together and apart. It’s hard to explain, but they’re infinite you know? They’ll always find their way back to each other. (view spoiler)[Suzie literally found her way back to the present because Jon loved her so much. Idc about the fact that they’re not officially together in the end. I know they’re endgame. That pinky hold solidifies it. It may not have been the right time then, but one day it will be. I know in my heart that they’re together. I don’t need the confirmation. I have faith. (hide spoiler)] It’s funny how such a ridiculous comic book could contain such an honest portrayal of love. Of relationships. The good, the bad, the messy, the ugly, and the wonderful. All of it was so visceral. The many facets of loving someone else. I’m just rambling now so lemme cut this short. I really hope Matt and Chip make another comic together. Maybe it’ll be more normal, whatever tf that means, or maybe it’ll be even weirder than time-stopping orgasms. Who knows? I’m gonna end this with one of my favorite quotes of all time. I love it because it’s true. Love is complete with or without sex. I love this quote so much I plan on getting it tattooed on my arm. Hopefully by then the world will return to some sense of normalcy and I’ll be able to go to comic con again, and maybe Matt and Chip will be there and I’ll be able to show it off. Sex is just a word. Love is a sentence.

    I really enjoyed this whole series and as far as endings go it's not awful. I just wanted more. I don't know if there was an ending the creators could have come up with that I would have enjoyed. It all comes down to Suze, Jon, and their other kinky friends to finally finish the "fight" against Badal.

    What can I say? I'm a sucker for a good ending. This wasn't the funniest installation in the story, but it had a lot of heart and really good conclusions to all of the character development that built up to it. No spoilers, but the ending of the Badal storyline kind of felt like it came out of nowhere to me and didn't satisfy as much as I'd hoped it would, but it didn't ruin the story for me or anything and the conclusion to the rest of the plot points made up for it.

    Well, there was certainly a bang and a climax, but that occurred halfway through the volume, leaving the second half feeling much like the end of Lord of the Rings, where everything that needed to be done is done but there's still a third of the book to go... Nonetheless, it was a nice conclusion, even though I'm more than a little mystified as to what in the hell actually happened to Badel...

    You gotta be impressed when a sprawling, absurd, dirty book ends spectacularly and with love. I’m sad it’s over. I’m glad I was here for it.

    A little torn. All stories evolve, but this one seemed to evolve past where it started quite a bit. It tried to get real serious and I'm not sure I was there for it. But this could also be because I read the previous volume so long ago that I didn't have any momentum going into this. A little torn.

    I do love these guys, and their irreverent sense of humour, and I can only imagine how hard it was to come up with a master plot to tie the characters together, to give them a joint purpose and make this less porney and more plotty. It just didn’t connect with me. I totally see what they were trying to do - I get that they wanted to leave you wondering a bit how it all ended (will they, or won’t they?) but I just ended up feeling like the story ran out of steam, and they didn’t do right by the c I do love these guys, and their irreverent sense of humour, and I can only imagine how hard it was to come up with a master plot to tie the characters together, to give them a joint purpose and make this less porney and more plotty.

It’s definitely a tough balance between character development and plot, and this last book didn’t find it. It’s like they didn’t realize that we really did like the characters, and want to know where they ended up - and not just in a synopsis at the end of the story. Actually, that might have been better than where it ended up. I mean, Kegelface with anti-aircraft guns? I wanted to know how they all coped with that MASSIVE shift in their lives, and how it messed with their identities. I would definitely recommend the first couple of books.

    This fucking comic. I love this series so much and they wrapped it up in such a cool and interesting way. It gets huge props for presenting time in a really thoughtful and intelligent way without making it tired. The way it jumped around at the beginning of this volume kinda threw me off but they made it work in the end. This volume was all so unexpected but I loved how much they focused on time and how we move through it. They also managed to keep the emotions as strong as ever. Yes maybe it was This fucking comic.

Yes maybe it wasn't as funny as previous volumes but it was really well done and it has some of the best art in the series. Some character moments felt a bit rushed but nothing too major. I've been super invested and in love with this comic from the second I started reading it so for it to come to an end definitely hurts but I'm so happy it got to explore everything it had to. I really hope we get another Matt and Chip comic in the future. They're a creative team made for each other.

    The series started out well but the ending was crap. The problem with this series started in the middle of it. Somewhere in there the writer lost the plot. I saw the same thing happen with Y: The Last Man. At some point the writer was so enamored with their own work that they forgot where they were going with the story. That's why there was a shift in the tone of the book. The rest was just a race to finish the story since the writer had no idea what to do before the ending.

And yes the last couple of pages made me tear up. Big love to this series I will definitely revisit some time down the line.

    Concluding volume of this strange comic series- a bit mystifying This final volume mainly deals with Suze and her confrontation with Badal. I can’t admit that I understood all of the premise behind it but it was quite interesting. There’s the usual array of characters but Suze and Badal are the main ones here.

    Sex Criminals goes out with a bang. Literally. Am I talking about sex? Explosions? Both? You'll just have to read it to find out. I really enjoyed this volume. The art was, as always, fantastic and there was some color work that was incredible. The writing was tighter than the last several volumes, and there were some really lovely astute moments. This one had room to breathe without dragging. I liked the way it wrapped up, and I'm really glad the series came together in the end after some shaky Sex Criminals goes out with a bang. Literally.

    A bittersweet ending to a hilarious series. Nobody ends up where you think they will, and that’s okay. Sometimes, things don’t end up where you think they will, and it can be hard or sad or disappointing, but it’s still okay. Something good can still come out of it. Also, there are some dick jokes.

    Was really hoping for more silliness with this volume, but it was really serious at points. There was even a part in the beginning where it's mentioned this volume is going to be pretty serious. And it was the truth too! But it was a good end to the story. A great end actually. Well worth the wait. Was really hoping for more silliness with this volume, but it was really serious at points.

    Farewell “Sex Criminals,” this was one of the first series that really sucked me in (no pun intended). Funny, surreal, and original, “Sex Criminals” was a great way to spend the past year reading. Great shit, funny as hell and it wrapped up all the loose ends neatly.

    Honestly I thought it got a bit deus ex machina-y, but let's be real, a lot of this story is truly about healthy relationships and sexuality, and I thought it stuck the landing there. The healthiest option isn't always the most picture-perfect.
