Fear Case #1

Godkillers #3

Jun 24, 2020

Godkillers #3 falls victim to the same missteps as previous issues and slides into the generic action/horror genre. By failing to make readers care about the characters or action on the small scale of issue to issue, it becomes hard for me to recommend anyone put much stock into this series' future.
