The last of the Hugo nominees for Best Graphic Story, this is a rather cool account of Suzie and John, who have discovered separately that time freezes around each of them whenever they have an orgasm, and together realise that they can rob banks (only for the best of causes of course) while the rest of the world is still. The story is told from Suzie's point of view, in flashback and breaching the fourth wall, with humour rather than coarseness. It turns out that even frozen time has its guardians, and we end on a bit of a cliff-hanger for the next volume; great fun though.

Matt Fraction has also been writing Hawkeye, which to my mind is a more delightful read. I saw that has been nominated for an Eisner this year while Sex Criminals has not. Of course, neither award nominated my favourite current comic, Revival, but I may take a closer look at the other Eisner nominees, which I haven't read.
