You're a high maintenance Jersey girl that lives close enough to New York to want the cosmopolitan lifestyle, but you're not brave enough to leave your over-protective parents. The solid guys that stayed behind fail to hold your interest very long so you wind up looking for a heart of gold where there is none. What's a girl to do? If you're Zoe, you marry the first God of War that crash lands in town. Then you move into a house just three houses down from your parents. But what happens when even a God can't exactly measure up to your expectations?

JERSEY GODS is a superhero book in which the hero, plagued by household chores, his wife's crazy agenda, and meddlesome in laws, has no time left to save the galaxy.

    Jersey Gods #1 was a good debut issue. This title has plenty of potential and Brunswick gave me enough to get me to come back for more. Even if you are mostly a DC and Marvel reader, I would still recommend giving Jersey Gods #1 a try. Despite the off-beat feel of this title, Brunswick still has given the reader the basics of a solid super hero tale. And readers who generally shy away from standard issue super hero comic books might also want to give Jersey Gods #1 a try. Brunswick's funky approach to the super hero genre will make this an interesting read to those readers who demand more than just a typical super hero story. But, best of all Jersey Gods #1 was simply a fun read. Read Full Review

    I do wish that the series began with Barock and Zoe already married and the details of how they met given in flashbacks or even saved for later in the series. The concept for this book is so intriguing that starting off slowly instead of in medias res seems an odd choice, and maybe not the best. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Feb 7, 2009

    Glen Brunswick combines New Gods with earthly matters of the heart for a potent tribute to Jack the King Kirby. It's too early to tell if an homage is all it is, but I'm willing to follow Jersey Gods for awhile to see where it goes. Dan McCaid's artwork is pleasing to the eye and energetic for the frenetic story. Read Full Review
