Beyond the edge of creation lies the Black Stair. And beyond it, amidst the void, he waits. Mol Uhltep, The Last God. This is the tale of those who claimed to slay him, and the world they doomed with their lies.
In the third chapter of DC's dark fantasy epic The Last God, Queen Cyanthe and her unlikely companions make their way across the land of Cain Anuun toward the Pinnacle-city stronghold of the Guild Eldritch, a powerful order of sorcerers led by Skol, another fabled member of the original fellowship of Godslayers.

    Johnson compared this to Lord of the Rings when it was first announced, and I can see why. This world is big, fascinating, often horrific, and so complex we're only seeing a small portion of it. I can't wait to see how it evolves as we head closer to the halfway point. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Dec 18, 2019

    The art team of Federici & Gho continue to bring stellar work to the series. The action sequences continue to be magnificent and well choreographed, and Gho's use of colors fits the setting really well. Excellent work once more. Read Full Review

    The Last God failed at this, so we're left watching a bunch of contemptuous and disdainful characters try to save a wretched world. Read Full Review

    Who knew that out of all the high fantasy offers out in the comic market right now - Image's amazing Die and Reaver, Marvel's 17 different Conan monthlies - DC would be the one coming out with the best offering?

    Phillip Kennedy Johnson has clearly crafted an extremely intricate world, yet he doesn't bog down the pacing with unecessary exposition. He gives you enough so that you're not lost, and then lets the tight plotting do the rest of the work.

    Riccardo Federicci's art is otherworldly in its beauty, complemented by Sunny Gho's gorgeous colours. This is truly the pinnacle of what a fantasy comic can achieve, and I just hope its sales reflect that.

    The jumping between time periods was hard to follow, and I don’t really get what’s going on…

    There’s a lot to forget and re-reading certain parts is a must. The crossing of timelines also gets a bit muddled in this issue. However the plot is great and the characters are interesting. However the journey to the Black Stair has some definite LOTR vibes in this issue.

    This is a really ambitious comic. It's clear that this is a vast world the writer has come up, rich with history. But I don't really care about any of it. I don't know what's happening beyond the basics and I'm incredibly disenchanted with the dialogue. And in this case, I honestly don't know if that's my prejudice against high fantasy or if this is a badly written comic. I can't tell the difference when it comes to these types of books. But I'm not one to give the benefit of the doubt.
