    This book is a success on every level, and I applaud Avatar for providing an outlet for creators to push the boundaries of what is acceptable subject matter in American comics. I can't wait to read more. Read Full Review

    Less a proper narrative and more a history lecture, "Supergod" #1 is about ideas, not characters. How much you can get interested in those ideas will determine how much you'll enjoy this book. Ellis' writing is inventive and unique and, if this series continues with the ideas introduced here, "Supergod" may be a template, of sorts, for numerous superhuman stories in the near future.

    In the world of Supergod, super-powered humans are the ultimate expression of the Messiah complex, and scientists can build Messiahs who will fly down from the skies to save the world. Supergod is the story of how supermen killed ended the world just because people wanted to be rescued by human-shaped saviors created by science! Read Full Review

    These initial 22 pages of setup are virtually all plot and narration, and the possible introduction of characterization and dialogue could certainly tilt the message to one side of the fence. However, until that day, Warren Ellis hasnt completely excluded anyone from the congregation just yet. Read Full Review

    Still, I look forward to seeing where the story leads next issue, and whether Ellis plans on tackling the theological implications of his ideas in more depth. Read Full Review
