    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Mar 15, 2017

    I'm really glad I was following the release of this book man. I love the approach and I love the themes intertwining into this story. You know the movie deal coming for this shit right? You know that's coming in like five to ten years time. Yo Cates. Shaw. When that happens y'all gotta put either Denzel Washington or Idris Elba as Emmet [and Michael B Jordan or Michael Pena as Roy]. Nobody does grizzled old man that'll snap your face off like them, don't sleep on'em. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tim Montoya Apr 13, 2017

    Even with Gods and Giant Swords, Cates makes this story feel so relatable. Between the over the top moments, we find the dialogue between Roy and Janey grounding the story. In a book that is about an outrageous(ly good) story, Cates grounds it with unfettered emotions and character building. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Mar 17, 2017

    By the end of this issue, you will be dying to read the next installment in the series. God Country continues to impress with great storytelling and beautiful art that mesmerizes the reader. The creative team has made this series a must read. The tale of a man with Alzheimer's and is family struggles are just as compelling as a "god sword" battling demons and that is what makes God Country such a great comic book. Read Full Review

    Pastrami Nation - Nolan Smith Mar 19, 2017

    This has become the series I recommend to those that are burnt out on the clichd superhero comic book market. Cates crafts another masterful script, with Shaw and Wordie creating amazing visuals that bring this surreal world to life. God Country should be on your pull list: it is my favorite Image Comics series out right now. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Levi Remington Mar 15, 2017

    God Country is more impressive every month it's released, and issue #3 may be the best yet. Donny Cates' writing is top notch, and even in a bleaker, less visually-engaging setting, Geoff Shaw's art is expressive, moody, and satisfying. If the team can keep this up, we're in for one hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Forrest Hollingsworth Mar 15, 2017

    “What it really was, and Lord help ‘em, they couldn’t have known this, was a time to batten down.” The issue warningly starts off, but more than anything it’s time for readers of all kinds to be picking this book up. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Mar 14, 2017

    Like the Quinlons themselves, there's not a ton of flashiness to God Country #3 " instead, there's a solidness and relatability to this book (despite the space monsters) that gives the narrative some weight even despite the no-frills plotting. There's something special about God Country, and while it remains to be seen if this story can maintain its edge moving forward, for now this is a series you shouldn't ignore. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Mar 15, 2017

    Turn on that Johnny Cash and crack open a can of beer. Be ready for the hurt that comes with getting another shot at things. God Country #3 isnt afraid to play in the muck of what comes along with being the mess that is a family. Its going to hurt, but no one said that getting another go at getting to the heart of it all was going to be fun and games. You can take a swing at the big bad that made it that way, but youre still going to have to sit down and talk it out in order to really get past the pain. Read Full Review
