Suzie’s just a regular gal with an irregular gift: when she has sex, she stops time. One day she meets Jon and it turns out he has the same ability. And sooner or later they get around to using their gifts to do what we’d ALL do: rob a couple banks. A bawdy and brazen sex comedy for comics begins here!
When this was first recommended to me on Amazon I kind of did a double take. I wasn’t sure why they’d think that this was a comic I’d enjoy, but I was intrigued. Then I went to my favorite local bookstore and they had the first volume and I had to indulge myself.
I’m so glad I did, it was so beyond what I’d ever expected. It’s an interesting concept, the fact that these two people freeze time when they orgasm. What a super power. I really enjoyed the art, which was gorgeous, as well as the story and the humorous little quips that Fraction includes in there. There were actually multiple times in which I took pictures and sent them to friends because I found it that funny.
This comic is obviously mature, and for mature readers, but if you can handle sex jokes and explicit content, but it was worth it. And the surprise addition of an enforcement force for people who have this ability was equally hilarious.
