Image Comics' September solicitations hit later this week, but CBR kicks off Monday with the exclusive first look at the cover and description for Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky's "Sex Criminals" #1. The series, a comedy about about two criminals who have the power to freeze time when they get intimate, was announced earlier this year at Emerald City Comicon.
"It is incredibly lonely, in a way that sex can be, and divisive and makes her feel separate," Fraction said of his main character Suzie's power. "Then one night at a party, she hooks up with a guy with the same gift [and they] discover that when the two of them have sex, they experience the world freezing, together. And they do what anybody would do -- they start robbing banks."

A SEX COMEDY FOR COMICS
Suzie's a normal girl with an extraordinary ability: when she has sex, she stops time. One night she meets John... Â who has the same gift. And so they do what any other sex-having, time-stopping, couple would do: they rob banks. In the vein of THE 40-YEAR OLD VIRGIN and BRIDESMAIDS, Image Comics invites you to come along with MATT FRACTION (Hawkeye, SATELLITE SAM) and CHIP ZDARSKY Â (Prison Funnies, Monster Cops) for the series that puts the "comic" back in "comics" and the "sexy" back in "sex crimes."
