A man cannot escape his destiny. Then again, Kratos is no mere man-he is a GOD-and he will stop at nothing to escape the bonds of his predestination. Neither prophecy, nor ancient text, nor manipulation of Athena can stop his single-minded mission to free himself from his past, from his future, and from the suffering of his present. Is he a man? Or is he the monster other monsters fear? A god-weapon forged of murderous rage? An ugly tool of destiny itself? Pray NOT to the gods to save you, for they may send Kratos.

    GOD OF WAR: FALLEN GOD #2's reluctant hero makes this story just as engaging as the games that brought him to life. Read Full Review

    After two issues of hollow navel-gazing and half an issue of working up to it, perhaps the next issue will eventually see this God of War series living up to its namesake. Read Full Review

    Another great issue. Another issue where the reader gets taken through the loop with Kratos and gets to feel just as annoyed as him as Kratos bucks against existential dread and the pointlessness of choice.
    If Sony'a producing comics this well, I want to see Crash Bandicoot take a dark turn in the stapled pages one day.
