This is a hardback volume that collects the first two trades (or the first ten issues) of the amazing Sex Criminals.
It is only slightly oversized but the hardcover and solid spine is excellent for reading on a table or your lap. Make sure you take the dustjacket off and laugh at the spoof cover underneath.
The extras are all the covers, including reprintings and bookplates and two pages on the artist’s method. There are also two pages of the sex tips – the little one-liners of sex advice sprinkled through the issues. Most valuable of all are close up pictures of the hidden background posters and in-jokes you have just spend the last hour squinting at hard enough to make you blind.
If you already have the issues or trades then there isn’t enough pull to buy this. If you are unsure about getting into the series then pick up the first graphic novel cheaply (you won’t be disappointed). But if you borrowed someone else’s issues and want to own it for yourself then this is definitely a good purchase.
