    Sometimes I sit back and wonder what it is about Hickman's writing that is just so damn mesmerizing and captivating. I mean he takes a provocative title such as God is Dead for the name of his series and then inside proceeds to bring back pantheon's that haven't been widely worshiped in millenia, okay that may be stretching it but you get the point. Creating a new world dynamic that is just incredibly awesome, some believe some don't others have military might behind them it's just a plethora of new and old ideas clashing in the most unexpected yet brilliant of ways.

    This feels like a Hickman book in the broad strokes, but nothing about the book itself either has Hickman's brilliant ideas, nor Costa's gift for crafting compelling dialogue. Read Full Review

    Meh….this series doesn't seem to want to address the really deep questions. It would rather show a Godly battle with tanks and other Gods. What's more, it doesn't seem to have that hard edge that I associate with a Hickman story. He usually has some point and he is going to poke you right in the eyes with that point…..but I'm not sure what he's trying to say here. Read Full Review
