"It's funny, heartbreaking and real all at once, while also being about sex and crime... One of the best comics I’ve read in years."
- Ed Brubaker (Fatale, Velvet, Captain America: Winter Solider)
"Well... Sex Criminals is like the best comic ever written. Congrats Matt Fraction and DAMN... art by Chip Zdarsky is PERFECT."
- Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Invincible)
"For a book about a gun-toting woman who literally orgasms her way to super powers (you heard me), Sex Criminals #1 is a remarkably relatable book. Writer Matt Fraction and artist Chip Zdarsky have crafted a debut issue that isn't like anything we've seen yet. It's part action adventure, part touching coming of age drama, all with a healthy amount of wry humor sprinkled throughout."
- Melissa Grey, IGN
"The book brims with a certain sexual energy that makes it fun, risqué, and refreshing."
- Jimbus Christ, Bloody Disgusting
"Sex Criminals #1 might be one of the best premiere issues of the year."
- Max Delgado, Unleash the Fanboy
"This is not a book that simply relies on the fact it contains the subject of sex in order to arouse curiosity. Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky have created something new and exciting."
- Tony Guerrero, Comic Vine
"I give Sex Criminals high marks for being a positive look at female sexuality, without giggling like a ten-year-old. It’s not a lewd book at all. It’s titillating, sure, but it’s very sincere...Enjoyable from start to finish, Sex Criminals is probably the weirdest and sweetest book I’ve read in a long time."
- Alison Berry, Comicosity
"In truth, this is definitely not what you expected–in the best of ways–and its sense of fun (anchored by its zippy dialogue) and emphasis on character so far are its strongest assets."
- Matt LeMaire, The MacGuffin
"Zdarsky’s art takes what could be the skeeviest titles on shelves into the sweetest."
- James Johnston, Multiversity Comics
"The inclusion of sex acts as told by a high school girl completely puts it into insanely hilarious territory. Zdarsky’s art gives the book a great look, making it expressive and having a great sense of style."
- Leo Johnson, Stash My Comics
