    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott Jan 8, 2015

    This is a tough book to explain to people. The plotlines are wide-reaching and largely laugh-out-loud ridiculous. But this is a book that you should be telling people about. Give it to your stoner best friend. Give it to your punk rock girlfriend. Give it to your fucking mom. This is a book that fills a niche on the shelves that I didn't even know existed until it came out, and now that there's going to be a trade (which, since it's an Image book, I have to assume will only be ten bucks), this is the perfect time to make everyone a God Hates Astronauts fan and bring them back for the second arc.

    All in all, when the minor faults can be forgiven, you know you're onto a winner. Fun is very much the key focus here and this issue ensures plenty of that, without making any sacrifices. Read Full Review

    The joke has run its course, God Hates Astronauts is officially not funny anymore. If you were planning for get the first five issues to see how the first arc ends, don't bother, it ends on a cliffhanger like any other issue and with several subplots left hanging that never felt like they were going anywhere anyway. The best part was a 24 year old Terminator 2 reference, to give you an idea of the quality of writing here. It's actually pretty difficult to find anything to latch on to in GHA because no character is relatable. Each character is equally idiotic so there is no straight man to play off of. I love pork, but I wouldn't consider ribs, bacon and a pork chop to be a satisfying meal, you need some vegetables and grains in there; eat nothing but pork for a year and you'll never want to eat pork again, that's what's happening here.
