    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jun 24, 2017

    'God Country' is a lot of things, some you expect, some you don't. It's very much an epic fantasy tale but that's just the gateway to the heart of the story - family. To what lengths would one go to, to hold on to a lifetime of memories, of those you loved? For Emmett Quinlan, not even all-powerful gods will stand in his way. 'God Country' is a limited series of great depth and complexity. In the end, it's about the power of love, family, and legacy. It's also one of the best comics of the year.  Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark Jun 30, 2017

    Most of us have dealt with the horrors of seeing a loved one succumb to the product of old age. It is tragic to see anyone lose who they are and not be able to remember the people they once loved. In all its larger than life fantasy God Country never forgot what was at the heart of this story. Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw could have easily filled this issue with melodrama as they piled on the tragedy. Instead God Country has worked on all levels. This crazy tale has its fun and exciting moments along with all the dread. When victory occurs there are moments of glee and when the finale does come there is a bitter sweetness to it all. Simply it is art in its purest form. This is how you announce to the world you are a creative team that is out to impact the industry. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Jun 20, 2017

    Ive loved God Country from the beginning, but I could never have predicted the impact that this finale had on me. It brought me close to tearsmultiple timesand wrapped up the story in a way that blows my expectations out of the water. God Country will go down as one of the best stories of its era.

    Comic Book Corps - Tim Montoya Jun 20, 2017

    I have said it ad nauseam in each review and with the series comes to an end I will say it again. Everyone needs to go read this series, like right now. It's been a pleasure to read and I am beyond sad that this is the final issue. However, Cates, Shaw, Wordie, and Hill finished it off in the best way possible. Seriously go pick this one up.

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Jun 21, 2017

    God Country is a story with heart, complexities, and so much more than the beat 'em up super heroics approach to telling a great tale for readers to appreciate. Cates and Shaw should be proud of the world they've built for this mini-series (why you do us like that though? Only six issues?), and need to lock in that movie deal ASAP. God Country built an incredible journey through alzheimer's as an illness to express how far someone will go in order to hold onto something as precious as a memory and life as they knew it.

    With a renewed focus on Emmett Quinlan's motivations, GOD COUNTRY #6 approaches the epic final confrontation with care. Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw are at the top of their game with this over-the-top godly brawl, while its ending leaves behind a few shed tears. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jun 22, 2017

    God Country #6 is a satisfying conclusion to Donny Cate's and Geoff Shaw's epic tale of Quinlan family. The scope of this series was big being about “gods”, wars and such, but yet it was a small family tale that is the heart and “meat” of the story. God Country is all about family and is truly a heart warming story from beginning to end and has been one of the best books of 2017 so far. God Country will grab you attention and keep you with it from beginning to end so don't wait “Come and Take it!” Read Full Review
