    G.O.D.S. #8 is an apt ending for its main character, Wyn, as the series closes the door on an idea machine that expanded our minds in the realms of science and magic. Whether you found it too confusing, or not as satisfying as Marvel seemed to promise, you can't deny it has added to the conversation of Marvel cosmic. Read Full Review

    I expect that G.O.D.S. was not what many readers anticipated from a Jonathan Hickman penned comic featuring such a title, but the intimate romance and character portraits set against a backdrop of apocalyptic eons has been one of Marvel's most charming comics in years. Read Full Review

    G.O.D.S. #8 brings the pseudo miniseries to a close by sending Wyn on a trip down memory lane to visit different points in his life, including the fallout from his battle with the In-Betweener (which we never see). Hickman proves he's still the most creative world-builder on Marvel's team, but readers looking for an actual story will only find unsatisfying snippets of scenes and ideas that could be developed into something more in the future.

    Jonathan Hickman is without a doubt the most ambitious writer in comics who also has the skill to make his big, bold ideas work. It's dense, heady stuff, but it's always well worth your time and money. Valerio Schiti's art is absolutely stunning throughout this whole series. It gave me something beautiful to stare at while I tried to wrap my mind around the concepts Hickman was laying down, which made each issue of G.O.D.S. a long read, but a deeply satisfying one. I will definitely be revisiting this story multiple times in the future. Another masterpiece for the comic industry's current most talented writer.

    Plot
    Wyn is in the future, witnessing another victory for the TNOOT and TPTB, but begins to doubt his service to the G.O.D.S, especially since Aiko also begins to regret this life and all the sacrifices he has made.

    Wyn tries to rescue Dimitri, but is unsuccessful. He also discovers that In-Betweener has his future prepared for him and is full of pain.

    The comic shows how Wyn analyzes his life and actions and how he asks his mentors for advice, so he decides to go to his wedding day with Aiko, where he is going to make a decision that his first mentor grants him, to use his skills for a common good or helping all those around you with a simpler life....the end is left open.

    It occurs at multiple moments more

    The vast majority of this series went right over my head, I got the main idea but the details escaped me. That's true for this issue too. I get that he was told by the love of his life that if she could do it again she'd go with him instead of her organization. Then he does some time tripping and ends up back on their wedding day and (as I'm translating the final page) decides to take the happy road.

    I suppose that's all that's important, and I did enjoy this series for sure. Especially the art, it was magnificent. Especially the depictions of Wyn's master and especially especially the big red robes and multiple white glowing arms. Those panels were jaw dropping.

    Hickman is a writer that even when I don't rea more
