    The Latest Pull - John Coolen Oct 31, 2014

    "God Killer: Walk Among Us" may not be for every comic book reader out there as it seems to sit in a genre of it's own. But, for those of us who like to venture out into the deeper, darker, ocean of comics, it's brilliant and fresh. This is one comic I'm truly excited to see out to its entirety. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Oct 29, 2014

    This is crucial reading for our consumer generation. Human psychology is a business, and "Godkiller" asks the question: what happens when you stop buying? It simply can't be ignored. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alice W. Castle Oct 30, 2014

    “Godkiller: Walk Among Us” #1 is a harsh look at ourselves and our world in a brutal, beautiful and unflinching comic. Matt Pizzolo and Anna Wieszczyk really have created a mythology for the fuck ups by bringing that sense of anti-authoritarianism that seeds the putpouring of rage and frustration in punk music to a comic book. The artwork is gorgeous in a way that defies conventions and the writing is subtle and sparse, showcasing the lives of people in the worst situations imaginable and showing that this dystopia they have created isn't actually all that different than the world we live in now. This comic is not for everyone. If you are like me and you can connect with the passion of release of frustration at the world in Pizzolo's writing and Wieszczyk's artwork, then you will likely love it. If not, then are more than enough comics out there for you. This just isn't one of them. Read Full Review

    Comic Book City Podcast - Mitchell Doig Oct 27, 2014

    At the end of the day, God Killer is an insane take on horror, sci-fi, and adventure that is strange to look at but never difficult to understand. If issue 1 is a fair measurement, this book is something that would a tragedy to miss. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Oct 28, 2014

    Now even though this series may have some history to its story, when you read this debut issue of Godkiller with fresh eyes, it's still a great debut for a comic. It's both familiar and different, which is a big part of Godkiller's allure. This book doesn't try to cater to everyone, so it is definitely an acquired taste. If you want a series that feels like anarchy and looks bleak and rusty, Godkiller is worth picking up. Read Full Review
