    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 16, 2017

    There's some very point commentary in this book that feels at home in our society right now but also manages to be timeless at the same time. It hits that perfect mark of always being relevant which is amazingly hard to hit. Goonface is making a huge splash in the world of comics after already doing some incredible creator-owned work. You will see his name again and again and hopefully only attached to amazing work like Godshaper. These two creators and three because Colin Bell's lettering is personally my favorite in the business, are delivering career work here. If you haven't been reading Godshaper, then damn" I feel sorry for you. This is the best monthly comic there is right now. Stop missing it. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Aug 16, 2017

    This issue of Godshaper manages to touch on the politics introduced in preceding issues while also giving us a direct look into what drives the story. I like the departure from the more political themes of the other installments because this issue does not betray them and instead offers a deep, profound exploration of the major players of the story. There is so much mystery left to uncover, yet I do not feel that the comic has left readers out to dry. In fact, Godshaper #5 is indicative of this creative teams ability to tell a story and to offer new perspectives with each issue while still being consistent in theme and representation.

    With the end of the issue outlining a plan to get all of our protagonists back together and still so many questions unanswered, things are hurtling towards a conclusion quickly. Spurrier and Goonface continue to put out some of the most beautiful, thought-provoking, and subtle work that I wish would never end. Read Full Review
