Format: Kindle Edition
Sieben Jahre lang war Simon Cooke als Vigilant "Armored Saint" der Beschützer seiner Stadt Saturn City...doch jetzt hat sich der Saint zur Ruhe gesetzt, um sich um seine Privatangelegenheiten kümmern zu können, beispielsweise die Firma, die ihm seine Eltern hinterlassen haben. Sein Anwalt und seine Sekretärin helfen ihm, sich in dem Job als Firmenleiter wieder einzufinden- mit mäßigem Erfolg. Derweil teilen diverse Verbrecherorganisationen wie "Der alte Mann" oder die "Alpha Brüder" schon wieder die Stadt unter sich auf... Simon fällt es schwer, sich dem Müßiggang der oberen Zehntausend hinzugeben,der meist aus dem hemmungslosen Ausleben der Sexualität besteht. Nicht leichter macht es, dass seine eigentliche Erzfeindin "Shadow Lynx" unter ihrem richtigen Namen Annabelle Lagravenese das teuerste und beste Bordell der Stadt leitet- und die beiden etwas füreinander empfinden. Und dann ist da noch der schwarze Tellerwäscher Keenan, der der nächste Beschützer der Stadt werden will und aus dem Untergrund heraus operiert...
Vieltexter Joe Casey (Godland, The Bounce, The Milkmen Murders u.a.) ist in allen Genres zuhause. Hier begibt er sich in die dekadente und oberflächliche Welt der erfolgreichen Yuppies,die so vom Leben verwöhnt sind, dass sie mit ihm schon wieder gar nichts mehr anfangen können. In Szene gesetzt hat die Serie Newcomer Piotr Kowalski, der seine Sache gut macht und wirklich schöne Frauen in vielen eindeutigen Positionen zeichnet. Der Hammer sind die ungewöhnlich eingesetzten Farben von Brad Simpson, die wirklich jeden normalen Colourguide ignorieren und somit erst recht außergewöhnlich und interessant wirken.

An amazing first volume 5. Dezember 2013
Von Adam - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I heard this recommended months ago and I have to admit that I went into this book with a very skeptical attitude. The thought of essentially a Batman/Bruce Wayne story with sex and nudity didn't sound that appealing to me. But I was really surprised by what I actually got.

Although it would be very easy to just cut and replace all the names in Sex with who they're based off of in the Batman universe, they feel oddly unique. Casey has written the characters to be quite flawed and the world of Saturn City feels like something very rich. It is VERY graphic in its depiction of sex and nudity, but Casey has done it in a way that makes it feel oddly right in the world. Kowalski's art is wonderful and combined with great coloring Sex makes one of the best looking comics in a long time.

Highly recommended

Think Batman for very, very mature readers! 12. März 2015
Von Niles Holman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
One can't expect much from a graphic novel titled 'Sex', but one's expectations can also be blown out of the water. Think Batman if the creators were given no-holds barred freedom to show every facet of life in glorious detail and had the disposition to not only awe but shock the readers. The character development and plot are thick and amazing even to the discerning reader. Not for the faint of heart, but it never claimed to be. The volumes in the series are of decent length and you will find yourself immersed in the 'world' instantly. There are several parallels to the aformentioned Batman comics in the way the story is presented, but this series exists on a much more mature, higher plane of existence. Comes highly recommended!
Cheap and boring 30. Dezember 2013
Von Sam Quixote - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
What would happen if Bruce Wayne stopped being Batman - could he return to civilian life?

You wouldn't know it from the cheap, attention-grabbing title, but that's what Joe Casey and Piotr Kowalski's Sex is all about, and all it proves is what an unappealing storyline that is to pursue.

Simon Cooke is a billionaire playboy who runs a global company and is secretly the superhero vigilante, Armored Saint, protecting Saturn City from criminals like Prank Addict and Shadow Lynx. Annabelle LaGravenese is Shadow Lynx, a cat-like burglar with goggles who frequently tangles with Armored Saint. But when Simon's close friend Quinn asks him, on her death bed, to leave the vigilante nonsense behind and find happiness in a real life, Simon finds it hard adjusting to what most people term a normal life - sleeping during the night, working a job, having friends and a sexual partner.

While the premise sounds like Casey has some subversive ideas on the Dark Knight, after reading Book One, I can tell you that Casey doesn't have anything at all to say about Batman, Catwoman, etc. His Batman is somewhat resistant to sex because his many years spent living his alternative lifestyle and muses that his real identity might've been behind the mask than without it. Yawn. I'm sorry but that's a pathetic observation that's been made numerous times before. Casey's Catwoman has eye problems after wearing a mask that incorporated super night vision goggles. Oh, and Casey borrows Frank Miller's idea of Catwoman running a brothel. That's it?! His Joker character lives through the news clippings of the past and has the worst villain name ever - Prank Addict (though to be fair Armored Saint and Shadow Lynx are equally bad).

There's precious little of any real substance to justify the eight issue length of this first book. That's a longer-than-usual amount of issues for the first collected edition in a series and really there should be much more here than those lame character observations but there really isn't. Maybe Casey's spending the extra pages to world build? Well, there is a lot of sex depicted in this book (and it's all full frontal so this one isn't for kids) but Saturn City isn't a place that's any more saturated with sex than any city in our world and besides that it looks identical to every other Western city, so no, Casey's not world building, he's just wasting time.

And despite the brazen title and frequent, often gratuitous and pointless nudity, this isn't a shocking book. It doesn't have any brilliant ideas and it's characters aren't interesting. There's certainly no plot besides watching Simon sit through numerous business meetings. And this is why Batman works better than this - we read Batman because of his awesome adventures; we don't care about his life as Bruce Wayne, who has to sit in on business meetings every now and then. Take away the Batman aspect and you're left with a businessman going to meetings - in other words, boring comics!

Also I don't care about Simon or anyone in this book. He's a one-dimensional dweeb who lives in luxury and doesn't want to do it with any of the gorgeous high-end call girls throwing themselves at him because he's just not there yet mentally. Why would anyone care about this guy if that's the (non)dilemma? Can anyone relate?!

There's some side stuff featuring supporting characters where a old man gangster, creatively called Old Man, is doing something evil, and a dishwasher who's secretly a martial arts expert/hacker who's messing with a pair of homosexual gangsters, but nothing you could call a plot. I suppose with the inclusions of these crimes and Simon's dithering lack of direction as a civilian, it's pointing to the conclusion that he'll (sigh) once more don the Armored Saint uniform? Whatever. I'm not going to read Book Two to find out.

Piotr Kowalski's art is damned good throughout and his covers are stunning, showing an imagination lacking in Casey's script. The pull-back shots of Saturn City are really pretty and gives the story a strong sense of grounding and atmosphere, and the characters' facial expressions are very evocative that express moments of comedy or conflict perfectly on their own. Brad Simpson's colours are brightly colourful and exciting, making the pages pop in sharp contrast to dark Batman comics, particularly the Batman: Black and White comics.

In comparing this book to Batman I'm actually making it seem more interesting than it is - really it's the lamest facsimile of Batman coupled with the third act of Eyes Wide Shut, both minus the masks and the interest. Sex features a collection of cardboard cutouts apparently doing something in between scenes of sex acts. If that sounds appealing, as well as a sequence where "Catwoman" masturbates to the memory of being chased by "Batman" across the "Gotham City" skyline, then Sex is for you. Otherwise I'd say this is the one time it'd be safe to avoid Sex.
Beautiful World Building 26. Juli 2015
Von Derek Uibelhoer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Though the end of this volume leaves us almost where we started (and yes its a long 8 issue arc) this world seems so tightly built that I want to see what happens next. At no point was I bored, as the graphic nature of this book is wonderfully colored and drawn. The layouts and panels have an 80's Vertigo vibe, and though the story may be just a mature version of Batman, the characters seem much more real and a lot less campy. Give it a try if you want a slow burn, but don't expect any heavy hooks or climaxes (no pun intended)

Meh 4. Oktober 2014
Von Michael Diaz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Meh. This collects 8 issues and in that time the main character never develops. He us just as flat and uninteresting as he is at the beginning. The art is ok but it is only a temporary distraction from the fact that there is nothing at all to the story. Also for some unknown reason each box of dialog has one random word highlighted. It is sooo annoying. When I finished this slog through boredom I was relieved it was over. Do not buy this book.
