TORONTO—Forget what it sounds like! SEX CRIMINALS is the funny, filthy, brand new comic book from acclaimed writer Matt Fraction and Toronto’s own celebrated illustrator and former mayoral candidate Chip Zdarsky. What’s it about? It’s about a couple of attractive young people who literally stop time when they orgasm, and then, while time is stopped, they rob banks! The Beguiling is gonna throw a hell of a launch party for it on release day, Wednesday September 25th, at WICKED nightclub. Yeah, that WICKED.
The Sex Criminals #1 Comic Book Launch Party is a strictly 19+ event that will feature Messieurs Fraction and Zdarsky as they present and perform from the series and across their repertoires! The evening will be hosted by Toronto’s own sexual advice guru Sasha, and feature live fetishwear demonstrations courtesy of Ego Assassin! Oh, and there’s an honest-to-goodness grotto too, so bring your swim trunks. The entire nightclub will be open to the public for your exploration, and the price to sate your curiosity is only $5, which includes a copy Sex Criminals #1!
