    Roberson has crafted a story that fits perfectly into the God of War lore, as Kratos reads as he sounds in the games. Parkers art looks great, especially in the battle scene with the demon bear. The pure rage of Kratos jumps off the page as he fights the beast, and what a fight it is. With a cliffhanger that will leave you wanting more, God of War is a fantastic journey to the Norse lands.
