4 Must-haves for every Sex Criminals Fan

Date Thu, March 10 2016

My friends are well aware of my obsession with a strange, funny, adult, human comic known as Sex Criminals. Sex Criminals is created by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky, and it’s hilarious. It’s gorgeous. It’s interesting. It’s unlike anything that’s currently out there.

Unfortunately, it’s also hard to find merchandise for it, which is a bummer. I would wear, buy, eat or swim in anything available. There may not be loads of things for us fans to buy, but there are a few awesome items that you pretty much need to own if you’re a fan!

1. Big Hard Sex Criminals

The hard-bound printing of the first 10 issues is, dare I say, sexy. It’s gorgeous, and I love the pink cover. It also has all sorts of extras, just like we came to expect from the individual issues. The same letters to the editor, and their responses, might be missing, but the concept art and other goodies more than makes up for it in my opinion.

Even if you already own or have read all the issues, you need this! I had never preordered a graphic novel/comic book before Big Hard Sex Criminals, but now I can’t wait for the next big printing!

2. Brimper T-shirt

There is not a lot of official merchandise for Sex Criminals, which is why I am writing this post at all. It’s a bummer, but one of the awesome things that does exist is the Brimper t-shirt. You can get it from the Diesel Sweeties store. I definitely recommend reading that Webcomic if you’re not familiar. Sadly, there’s only one size left, and it’s in women’s, so this print might be limited.

You can also get the fan-made Brimpin’ Ain’t Easy shirt on Redbubble. It comes in more colors and styles.

3. Espionage Nail Wraps

I have yet to write about my experience with nail wraps from Espionage Cosmetics, but I like them better than most of the nail wraps I’ve tried, including those from Jamberry. Part of the reason is that you can get awesome geeky designs and officially licensed designs. The Sex Criminals bundles look straight off the page and use the blues, pinks and purples that I love from the comics. I actually haven’t worn mine yet because they’re so awesome that I want to grow my nails out.

You can get the nail wraps separately, but I also recommend checking out the bundle if you’re a super-fan! It comes with the wraps as well as Sex Criminals Issue #1 and an autographed comic. That’s pretty cool!

4. Just the Tips

This isn’t Sex Criminals merchandise per se, but you’ll probably like it if you’re already a fan of Sex Criminals. Matt and Chip use the same humor and art style to provide the reader with sex tips. The Amazon description does a great job of letting you know what you’re in for:

[T]he creators of Sex Criminals are proud-ish to present Just the Tips, a curated collection of tips, tricks, moves, advice, suggestions, stories, and confessions, how-tos, do’s, don’ts, and do-agains-but-slower-this-times from the unmissable letters column of Sex Criminals, alongside all-new material specially created for this collection only. Finally, a book to teach you how to not be a sex dumby no more. It’s this book.

Now, I can’t force anyone to buy these things, even though I think your life will be improved if you do. I also can’t force you to pick up Sex Criminals if you haven’t yet read it, but you’d be remiss not to check out the first issue if you like smart and sexy humor. You’d also be doing yourself a favor if you caught up with the series if you’ve fallen behind!
