    Big Comic Page - Shane Hoffman Apr 18, 2017

    If you're not already reading this creative masterpiece then you're missing out on what could be one of this years best works. I give this story high marks all around; it has a great story that is deep, personal and full of fantasy, along with artwork that captures each moment just as the words intend. And man, if the final page of this latest chapter doesnt have you impatiently waiting for issue five, then you better check your pulse. I dont want to have to wait another month. I want it now!

    'God Country' is even better than you've heard. That's a credit to this creative team but more importantly to Cates' Emmett Quinlan that drives the narrative with old-man stubbornness, strength, and renewed courage. When everything you hold dear relies on keeping that sword you'd defy gods and monsters to keep it too. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Apr 28, 2017

    Shaw draws a hell of an underworld and continues to be a great artist bringing this series to life. Each god has been presented very different and Balegrim looks to be the Hades representative, coming across very callous and above it all in his dealings. This series leaves me interested in seeing more new gods and hopefully some characters or other weapons to help Emmet on his quest. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Alexander Handziuk Apr 18, 2017

    God Country #4 is another spectacular issue and one that manages to be both simple yet packed with emotion. On one hand, it's a shame that the book only has a couple issues left, but on the other hand, if the conclusion is anything like the journey up till now, then it's going to be a grand finale.

    Consistently and somewhat stunningly, God Country continues oozing creativity. This issue, even if it falters a bit in visual choreography, is no different. I implore readers of all walks of life to check it out. Read Full Review

    I am hoping that this series has a happy conclusion, but everything up until now has been very well written and planned out. I feel that his may become a regular series based on the amount of success and praise it has been met with. The Hell landscape and anger from Emmett Quinlan were great additions to a already great story.

    Stupid issue. Absolutely stupid. It made zero sense. If Valofax had the power to get rid of the hordes of dead army just by saying I release you then why didn't the sword do that last issue before his granddaughter was even taken??? And why did Valofax make a point to tell Emmett he can't help him if Balegrim uses the leverage of those he held dear when Valofax had the power all along to defeat Balegrim as soon as Balegrim picked up the sword?? I was waiting for Valofax to be in real trouble when Emmet went under Balegrim's spell and Balegrim picked him(?) up...but no, just kidding guys! I''m an all powerful sword, so I got this...so pointless. Just makes it so pointless to put Emmett through seeing his wife when Valofax could have taken out Balegrim as soon as his dead army showed up. I''m dropping this. One of the most over rated books on the shelf.

    Book of the week, right here. I really like how much the story keeps progressing and the strong characterizations. Really, if you're not reading God Country by this point I don't know what to tell you. Easily one of the strongest titles on the market!

    Another strong issue, filled with action and emotion. The last two issues haven't quite lived up to the promise offered by the first two, but that's no matter. It's still really good.

    This issue was good but is the worst of the series so far. That's not meant to put down this book because the other books have been great.
