Meditations On Sex, Love, And Venn Diagrams In Fraction And Zdarsky’s ‘Sex Criminals’ #1 [Review]

Sex Criminals

Here's a fun fact: when you Google Sex Criminals, the first result you get does not, in fact, refer to the new Image Comics series from Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky. Instead, in a deft maneuver to remind us of the blackness that surrounds us, the byzantine network of pneumatic tubes that constitutes Google’s search engine front-loads the page with a link to the National Sex Offender Registry. For the record, internet: Sex Criminals is a funny, engaging, and inventive new comic book about sex, love, and fighting the man, with a clever sci-fi twist. Sex offenders are not. For more on the hilarious differences between the two, continue reading.

Dash Shaw’s ‘New School’ Delivers Bewildering Color & Complex Emotions [Review]

Dash Shaw
Dash Shaw

Since his quirky, moving, and massive Bottomless Belly Button made every person in the world's best books of 2008 list, cartoonist Dash Shaw has turned his attention to shorter forms and new media. The long-running webcomic Bodyworld, the short story collection The Unclothed Man in the 35th Century AD, and the IFC animated shorts of the same name have all been marked successes, but many readers, myself included, wondered how long it would be before Shaw cycled back around to a new original graphic novel.

New School, the artist’s first long-form OGN in five years, is now available from Fantagraphics Books, and it answers our wonder with its own. A hardbound, 340-page story of brotherhood, prophecy, and theme parks,  New School is surreal, emotional, and delirious with color.

Online sneaker purchases, setting a relationship status on Facebook, deciding between a croissant or a bagel breakfast sandwich, these are the things readers definitely won't find in "Revolver," an original graphic novel coming this July from "3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man" creator Matt Kindt

Spider-Man Dies in the Cutting Crew’s Arms This Wednesday and That’s Righteous

ijustdiedinyourarmstrade

Everybody knows Marvel's "Amazing Spider-Man" team digs on some Cutting Crew. How else can you explain the Premiere Hardcover coming out this week titled "I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight"?

Sure, in the context of the issues the trade contains (including ASM #600 and ASM Annual #36), it's easy to narrow it down thematically, but as the story highlights also include Aunt May's wedding and a battle with a dying Doctor Octopus, it could just as easily been called "One Wedding And A Non-Funeral."

Instead, Marvel did the right thing. And by "right thing," I mean "the thing

The Ghosts Of Assorted Time Periods Are Toast In IDW’s Ghostbusters Holiday Special

ghostbustersholidayspecial

Maybe it's because I'm something of a Scrooge myself, but I really, really get sick of "A Christmas Carol" adaptations. Since Charles Dickens is no longer with us to rake in the dough, the story's public domain status has lead to a pretty watered-down mythos that gets exploited by Hollywood every two years or so
