Well, seeing Kegelface go after Jon’s new therapist explains why the sex police have all that information about everyone. I’m curious to know more about what Ana knows about them.

I enjoyed seeing Suzie and Jon have a very real conversation about their relationship and problems. It felt very true to life, and what you often don’t see in media about real relationships: all the crappy hard work. That said, Jon’s and Suzie’s life goals (besides getting mentally in a better place) are really naive.

Ana continues to be awesome. Her “wait, you aren’t weird sex ghosts too?” line was brilliant. I can’t wait to explore more about why she’s a weird sex ghost and how they aren’t.

Also digging Robert and Rachel as the trusted “normal” friends who are in on the secrets. Zdarsky once again made me laugh a lot with his labeling of the books here.

I love Ana, so I hope she’ll be in future comics; however, I’m completely onboard with her dumping Jon and Suzie due to the bank robbing.

Suzie’s realization that perhaps Jon really likes being a thief is powerful. I like the layers of questions that it adds to the future of their relationship and how it might not last. One thing I’ve greatly appreciated about this book from day one is how realistic the romantic and sexual relationships between people are. There’s no gloss just for the sake of gloss.

I also appreciate how people with these types of powers are just random. They don’t have particular characteristics, except this ability.

Though really someone going by Jon Johnson shouldn’t make fun of Douglas D. Douglas.

+1 David Bowie retirement home joke.

Who’s unsurprised this turned into a giant hentai joke? No one. Absolutely no one. I was interested to see what powers the other characters had, but now I’m not so sure.

Also, I’m sure Suzie has some yet unlocked other super sex powers. I liked it when she called Jon’s glowing penis a lightsaber.

Yeah, they so need Ana’s help. Jon already has a fragile ego and psyche, and Kegelface is playing for keeps, or for the very destruction of his soul. Whichever may happen. She will play him like a fiddle after she (literally) pumps Dr. Glass for information.

Also Ana’s speech about the pathologization of sexuality and gender…boom. Hats off to you, Fraction.
