Sex Criminals is a comic book series about sex.

That was probably a little self-obvious, right? It's in the title after all.

I had a discussion with some of my coworkers yesterday about comic books, ironically enough, and one of them talked about the distinct divide between superhero adjacent comics and comics that come out of the indie scene. Sex Criminals is definitely one of the former. When you're used to the language of superhero comics, how do you write a comic book about sex? Give people magic powers when they have orgasms, of course.

Of course.

Sex Criminals is a comic book series about a man and a woman robbing banks with magical sex powers.

Sex Criminals is a comic book series that uses magical sex powers as a way of talking about sex in a way that's sharp, nuanced, and funny.

Sex Criminals is a comic book series about confused teenagers trying to muddle their way through understanding how sex works.

Sex Criminals is a comic book series about adults falling in love with one another.

Sex Criminals is a comic book series that contains a long-running joke about a sex shop named Cumworld.

Sex Criminals is a comic book series that you clearly should read based on that criteria alone.

Have I mentioned that I want Sex Criminals AUs to be the new, hip AU in fandom? People should write all of them for me.
