    What can I say about this creative team that I haven't said yet? Well, they are both geniuses. The story that they have created is great. And Pace is fast becoming one of my favorite artists. This is a great book that is good for those who love comics and for those who have never read one, but would like to see the best that the form has to offer. Read Full Review

    With every passing issue, I become more and more enamored of this series. Read Full Review

    If you're in the mood for a cleverly hilarious comic, this ones for you. If you're also in the mood to explore your religious beliefs, then open up your mind and dive right into this comic. Sure, Russell mixes Biblical truth and fiction in this issue but open-minded readers will leave captivated on a philosophical tour that will drive them wild with some laughter along the way. Fans, this type of comic is right in Mark Russell's wheelhouse. Give this series a try and let me know what you think. Read Full Review

    Between a lack of definition and two art styles that continue to be poorly dispatched in defining settings and tones, Second Coming still hasn't found its footing (if it ever will). Read Full Review

    Second Coming is a series I probably would have dropped had I not been hopelessly behind in my pull list. I paid for the comic and while it hasn't been a great reading experience Second Coming has had some high points, including this issue.

    This issue is great and honestly one of the best comics I've read this year. Most of the off-color jokes have been dialed back and we're left to focus on the principal characters and what makes them tick.

    The ongoing plot of Sunstar's attempt to adopt or have a child is seemingly resolved in this issue. After being unable to adopt a child Sunstar travels too a third world country at the behest of a dictator who offers a solution to his problem. The idea is definitely ba more

    The whole two different stories of Sinatra being set up by a dictator and Jesus and his followers was very interesting. And the ending of Satan planning a strike against the two at his very own last supper was very well done! God however seems to be written rather off. It would be better if he was written as a disinterested party with too much on his plate than a father type figure with shifting moods.

    I don't know why Magnett continues to review these issues when they disagree with the core premise. They might as well not even bother. Maybe get someone to review it that doesn't come into every issue with a negative preconception. If the dialogue for these biblical figures doesn't ring true enough for you in this satirical comic, then don't read it.

    I found this issue lacking in laughs. Sunstar's arc kind of interesting but not particularly original. I actually enjoyed the prose stories at the end the most, especially Brainwash.
