"Supergod" also acts as the third book in a loose, thematic trilogy of comics about post-humanity done by Ellis for Avatar, following up on "Black Summer" and "No Hero." It stands as the most thought-provoking and challenging of the three books, concerned with tackling an almost impossible idea: how does something not human think and act? Ellis succeeds in laying out some theories and providing a hint of where to go for future writers. "Supergod" may not work completely as a story, but as an argument, a theory for post-human stories, it's a brilliant piece of work. This conclusion is depressing and challenging and frustrating and disturbing. It's the sort of comic that sticks with you and changes the way you think about superhero comics. Read Full Review
Warren Ellis creator owned properties are usually good and this is no exception. While this comic book is heavy on the science fiction it does not dive too deep into the science explanation of things which I am thankful for. The book doesn't quite connect up the nation created "gods" with any sort of actual religious basis that I could tell. It's more like the superhuman arms race is nothing more than a Frankenstein race. It works for an entertaining read though and it worth picking up. Read Full Review
