NY Times Bestseller Sex Criminals Returns In January 2020!

Sex Criminals, the mature readers title from Image Comics is coming back. We last saw Suzie and Jon back in June of 2018. Some of us were beginning to think that it was becoming the victim of it’s own success. Never fear, Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky are bringing it back. In January, 2020 the final story arc, “The End.”sees its beginnings.

Of course, this is not a comic for children. It tells the story of people that stop time whenever they have intercourse. It’s been funny, poignant, and heart-wrenching to watch these characters come together and drive themselves apart. There’s no word on how long “The End” will last, but it looks like it’s coming. Who knows if there’s going to be a happy ending.

Here’s the press release from Image Comics.

The highly anticipated return of Eisner Award winning, #1 New York Times bestselling romance/humor series Sex Criminals—by Matt Fraction (November, Hawkeye) and Chip Zdarsky (Daredevil)—will kick off again with issue #26 in January 2020 from Image Comics and begin its final story arc.

“Working with Matt again is like riding a bicycle: I can’t do it. It hurts my body and I’m constantly scared,” said Zdarsky.

Fraction added: “Riding a bike is just like working with Chip Zdarsky: it’s really cool, and I want all my friends to see me doing it, and it once busted out all my front teeth! We make a comic called Sex Criminals! I love Chip! Siri stop dictation stop stop no Siri stop stop.”

Praised for its emotionally compelling characters, taut storytelling, and comedic genius, Time Magazine called it “the best comic of the year” upon launch. Since its debut, Sex Criminals has garnered coverage from such mainstream media outlets as Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, NPR, and The Washington Post and won multiple awards.

Sex Criminals follows the adventures of Suzie and Jon—a couple who discover they can stop time when they have sex.
