Yes I know sex in the vagina or anus is great and all but, I'm talking the comic by Joe Casey. I started reading the first issue but never finished it and I see it on a lot of year end lists and I usually like Casey so thought I'd poll the outhouse.

Recent Joe Casey is like Frank Miller without all the charm.

Didn't like it. Butcher Baker, the Bounce and this have been very underwhelming for me.

Godland was good but that's over now :(

Sex is a slow burn and I'm still waiting for it to kick into gear...8 issues later. For some reason I keep picking it up. The Bounce on the other hand has not impressed me in the least. I'm very close to dropping that title. It's a slow burn, and the story has no cohesion whatsoever.

no
take away the "look what I just did" aspect of the book and you are left with a comic book with no entertainment value

I've wondered about this series too. I've started buying more Image books lately after a couple of decades aversion to their output after the Jim Lee et al years.

This book & Sex Criminals too, I thought maybe there's not much to them other than attempts at shock value, so I haven't bought either so far. Would be interested to know what other people think of them.

Slightly off-topic but I'm enjoying Fatale, Pretty Deadly, Black Science, Velvet, Umbral & Blackacre to name a few. Going to try EGOs too.

Sex Criminals is maybe the best book out right now. Seriously, Sex Criminals is amazing. Drawn and written to perfection.

There is a reason it's up there with Hawkeye and Saga on best of year lists. Only 3 issues in and it's just so damn good.

Butcher Baker turned me off so much I'm likely to never try a Joe Casey book again. I get the "subversive satire", but it read like shit to me.
