Writer LaToya Morgan (Showtime's SHAMELESS) joins the Zenescope team with a brand new, modern re-imagining of Greek mythology like you have never seen before.

The Greek and Roman gods of legend are real! They live amongst us, hiding in plain sight as humans. Some of these gods, such as Zeus and Athena, work to keep humanity safe from evil, while others are hell-bent on returning to the ways of old, when gods were worshipped. As the vengeful Venus sets in motion a plan to enslave humanity and have it bow to her power, two sides of an inevitable war will begin to form between the gods!

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Aug 5, 2014

    Grimm Fairy Tales presents Goddess Inc. #1 is the start of a refreshed look at a slightly aged corner of this lasting franchise. It's not groundbreaking by any stretch of the imagination but the team yields enough promise to garner attention and earn a shot. Recommended. Read Full Review

    An okay first issue, though I'm not really sure about all that's going on. Interesting, but questionable if I'm going to purchase another issue. It takes a hit because of the art. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Aug 5, 2014

    I also like this particular execution of the Gods among us concept which has been a bit overdone well before now. So overall call me conflict on this one, there are plenty of elements I enjoyed but there are probably more negatives than positives on the whole, if you're a bit more forgiving I'd pick it up but otherwise I might wait a bit and check in with this series later on to see if it gets better.

    Comic Bastards - Kimberly Gibson Aug 6, 2014

    In regards to the artwork, if I put aside how problematic the renditions of the characters are then it's actually not too bad. I'd just like to see a more representative group of characters. Although the work does gives off an eerie vibe that I think works with the whole sinister plotting feel. Also, the variant cover art was on point, I really dig the classic Venus versus Modern Venus ones though. However, if Venus was real today I think a fashion mogul would suit her well and Cover A captures that. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Hollie Cumberland Aug 8, 2014

    Overall, this book wasn't terrible, it had promise in terms of the artwork and the premise of the book, but the general presentation needs work if it's going to be a successful mini-series. If you can stomach it, a look at the next book might make things clearer, but understandably not many people, after the shoddy work portrayed within these pages, would be willing to give it another go.

    Project-Nerd - Jarrod Aug 7, 2014

    At the end of the day, this book really sits at the level of decent. I didn't like it all that much but I also didn't hate it. There is some real story potential here. If scheming gods and drawings of sexy women are your thing, then pick up this book. Read Full Review
