One of the most unique comic book launch parties in the history of the industry occurred last night at Wicked nightclub in Toronto.

The book was Sex Criminals, a genuinely touching, romantic and indeed erotic new mature readers miniseries illustrated by Chip Zdarsky and written by Zdarsky and Matt Fraction and published by Image Comics, about a pair of criminals with the power to stop time with their simultaneous orgasms. The venue was not a typical nightclub; it has beds, and a hot tub, a public shower, and strange holes in the bathroom wall. Wicked is a sex club. For sex.

2012-02-09-gws1328

At first glance, Danielle Corsetto's webcomic Girls with Slingshots seems like an unlikely place to find a little sex ed. Although it's always been a bit more on the adult side, with its tequila-induced hallucinatory houseplants and near-apocalypse caused by shortage of vibrator-powering AA batteries, GWS is one of webcomics' closest successors to the syndicated newspaper comic. And I'm routinely surprised by the range of my friends who read it; lawyers, softw
