Sex Criminals Vol. 1 by Matt Fraction, Chip Zdarsky
This was so hilarious I couldn't even handle it! But also, THIS COUPLE. Everyone should aspire to have a relationship like the one they have! (Well, you know, minus the whole Bonnie and Clyde/bank robbing thing.) They were so open and secure and could talk about literally EVERYTHING with no jealousy or judgment. And their first date lasted 55 hours. I once had a second date that lasted 8 hours, and I thought that was pretty good, but Suzie and Jon put me to shame. There was a bit of heavier stuff involving mental illness, but it balanced out the funny. The only thing that bothered me was this seemingly major logic flaw, unless I'm just not understanding something, in which two people have to orgasm at the same time in order to go into The Quiet (the time stopping thing) together, Jon and Suzie have to really work together to accomplish it, yet the sex cops are constantly in The Quiet with them despite there being no way they could've synced up perfectly. But aside from that... This couple. They were adorable. And imperfect. I loved it.
