Aiko has done a bad thing, and the only way she can set it right is to tell the truth and stop lying. But who doesn't love lying? Certainly not the Lion of Wolves.

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Mar 28, 2024

    G.O.D.S. #6 continues its winding road through the re-establishment of Marvel's cosmology by taking one of the more straightforward fantasy plots, the deal at the crossroads, and placing the avatar of science and logic, Aiko directly in the center of it. Hickmans scripting makes an excellent meal out of the pairing, letting the contradiction propel the story into its next major turn. Schiti picks up that sense of opposition as he places a core emphasis on Aiko as a person while grappling with the sheer magnitude of the cosmic deities. The compositions and linework always favor the smaller individual, reveling in her expressions while Aiko strives to right her wrongs. When overlapped with the regality of Gracias palette, it becomes evident that there is an undercurrent of mythology underpinning the vast cosmic canvas of the series. Read Full Review

    Schitis art is vibrant and beautifully detailed throughout the issue. I love the visual style of this series and how it creates a beautiful other world to explore. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 27, 2024

    G.O.D.S. #6 is modern Marvel's Odyssey, only condensed into a comic book. The brevity of character work shows itself, however, making some of the elements unearned. That said, the wonderment is incredible in this ongoing sci-fi fantasy epic. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Mar 27, 2024

    G.O.D.S. #6 forces Aiko to deal with the consequences of her destructive action toward Mia with a whimsical-yet-edgy journey to meet with the most powerful forces of magic in Marvel. The technical execution is on-point, and the art looks fantastic, but Hickman's over-attention to world-building and character moments leaves little time to build out an actual story with only two issues left to go.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 31, 2024

    The betrayal in the final pages of G.O.D.S. #6 should not have been a surprise, but it was, and the best parts of this issue provide a similar kind of satisfying dissonance, changing not only what happens next, but what has happened before. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Mar 27, 2024

    Reading G.O.D.S. feels a bit like watching the creators pull a sleight-of-hand trick. Many of the flourishes associated with Jonathan Hickman's writing style are a presenta sense of gravitas and mystery, systems within systemsyet, underneath that veneer, the series hasn't revealed much conflict or plot to latch onto and remains content to slowly build out its new take on Marvel's cosmic power balance as an exercise in pure worldbuilding.

    This series continues to impress. The only thing I disliked was that it seemed Aiko claims to have come to know Mia well and care for her deeply but it really doesn't seem there has been enough time for that. I'm sure it's true since the preordained said her masters would detect any form of deceit and Aiko surely would have done much worse things than this in her mission for TNOOT but again it just seemed too quick to have developed those kinds of feelings. It's just a minor quibble and not enough to lower my score of one of the best books marvel is producing these days. Story and art combine to form a better magic and supernatural comic than most books in either of the big two TBH.

    To summarize, this comic establishes two groups of beings who are governed by their god, who behave like police organizations in their respective fields:

    THE-POWERS-THAT-BE (The powers that are/that define us): this group of beings ensure the correct magical balance of our world, that is, their powers are based on magic. We will call it TPTB. Allies in the Marvel Universe: Doctor Strange, Clea Strange, Voodoo, Wong. Members Wyn, Dimitri
    THE-NATURAL-ORDER-OF-THINGS: This group is responsible for keeping at bay any threat that is governed by logic, physics, that is, science. We will call it TNOOT. Allies in the Marvel Universe: Reed Richards, Black Panther. Member Aiko.

    Aiko asks The Wolf for help to take more

    I could nitpick, but why? Very enjoyable stuff.

    just caught up to this series. Maybe I'm stupid, but this series isnt just for me. The exposition is very heavy yet sterile and not engaging, Aiko and Wynd are not interesting, and the pacing as well as the story doesnt go anywhere for me. I'm in the minority, and it's a hot take (which I apologize). But While I do like Hickman's works, this isnt for me.
