It’s edgy. It’s cool. I know that because the authors keep telling me that. You see, when Jon and Suzie have sex, they stop time, so then they can go rob banks. Which is what they do, a lot. Meanwhile, there is a crew who when they have sex and stop time, they instead try to catch the criminals. So, that’s why it’s edgy, see?

“Criminals” have sex and they do crimes, but are the good guys. And the ones that try to stop them lead by Kegelface (Myrtle Spurge) aren’t really cops, they’re the bad guys. Got it?

Fortunately, this issue dials back the self-congratulations and snark a bit to tell a pretty compelling noir-ish story about the arch villain. As it turns out, Myrtle is a judgmental constant finger blasting receptionist come wannabe cop. In this story, she is tracking down some harmless perv. The story is fun and interesting and introduces a recurring character.

The story blends action and irreverence with humor. My biggest complaint is that the writers have a tendency to intrude in the narrative just a little too much. WE GET IT! We wouldn’t be here otherwise.
