END OF STORY ARC All good things, like sex, crime, and this arc of SEX CRIMINALS, come to an end. And this one ends with CHARACTERS doing THINGS and making CHOICES that CHANGE EVERYTHING! In terms of, y’know, the SEX CRIMINALS comic book. Everything’s still the same over in, like, Batman or whatever.

This arc of Sex Criminals has been deeply emotional, more so than you might think for series that rose to prominence on dick jokes. This issue promises to change Sex Criminals forever, but seeing as how the crime and even the sex have featured less and less, that’s already been happening. Regardless, for fans this is an issue you can’t miss.

COPPERHEAD WRITER JAY FAERBER TEAMS WITH RISING STAR SUMEYYE KESGIN TO UNVEIL ELSEWHERE: THE FANTASTIC STORY OF WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO AMELIA EARHART!
Mysteriously transported to a strange new world filled with flying beasts and alien civilizations, Amelia desperately struggles to return home. Along the way, she forges alliances and makes enemies as she goes from aviator to freedom fighter in a rebellion against a merciless warlord!

I love alternative history stories. Give me Mark Twain piloting a time-traveling steamboat and I’m a happy geek. But for those who don’t share my love of this kind of thing, I have to ask you one question — can you honestly deny the sheer awesomeness of Amelia Earhart (a pretty awesome lady in real life) going all John Carter in a world full of flying monsters and alien civilizations? I think not.


Buy these comics at your local comic book store (don’t know where that is? here you go) or digitally via comixology.com.
