    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 18, 2013

    This series continues to excel in the horror of a God who is not caring, not loving and not anybody you'd want to spend a minute with. The premise is intriguing, but the art and dialogue so compelling you'd be a moronic pion of a human not to pick up this godly work. Read Full Review

    Ambitiously epic, Next Testament #6 leaves readers wanting more after a shocking cliff-hanger. Because each of the first six issues have been a home run, I can't wait to read what happens in the next half of the "Next Testament" series. Read Full Review

    This issue, hell this story has been nothing but a roller coaster ridefrom the start. From the pacing, the dialogue, the chemistry and character developmenteven the transitions between the two plots not givingan inch keeping this title in borderline perfect harmony. The onlyflaws that I can safely statemainly come from the art itself, but as my other reviews state, thisis not the type of story "big two" caliber talent are used to, so ittakes a special type of madnessto organically craft this powerful story with ease, so I ampersonally whelmed withthe art though I can't shake the feeling that it could be polished alittle more if need be.Another flaw I noticed also happens to be the stories greatest strengthand that's the story itself.I know what you're thinking, "But dude! you were just praising thestory a minute ago! how can you go from calling it almost perfect toit's biggest weakness?!" Simple, the story is a masterpiece because ofwhat it is about, because it Read Full Review

    Honestly, God's magic has taken me in this series as well. I love reading this issue and always save it for last when reviewing it. It is my treat at the end of the day. The comic is short and packs a powerful punch all about God and his beliefs. I find it cool too that God suddenly is naked in this issue revealing all of his colors. The art is just beautiful to look at. The way God is this encompassing color wheel and focal point of the comic is pretty cool. I think next issue will bring a lot together for the series as well. Tristan and Elspeth are eventually going to run into God and Julian. It will be entertaining to see how Tristan and Julian's relationship will be when they see each other again. I hope this comes next issue, because the couple has been on the road a lot. It is time for them to come face to face. Read Full Review
