In GOD COUNTRY, readers meet Emmett Quinlan, an old widower rattled by dementia. Emmett isn't just a problem for his children-his violent outbursts are more than the local cops can handle. When a tornado levels his home-as well as the surrounding West Texas town-a restored Quinlan rises from the wreckage.
An enchanted sword at the eye of the storm gives him more than a sound mind and body, however. He's now the only man who can face these otherworldly creatures the sword has drawn down to th more

    When I first started this trade I wondered about what was all the hype. This is a really good book, but why are people calling it best of the yea material. I finished it and the hype is absolutely true. This story starts out great and ends in perfection. I'm happy indeed this start to finish as as one book. Cates told a great story that really doesn't need a sequel. I think that that is a testament to Image Comics. Image has wanted another hit like Saga and Walking Dead but to not draw out story for the sake of dollars here is something I heavily respect. This is a book about choosing connection over power and fighting He'll for the people you love. It is about time and passing on the best of yourself. Shaw captures all of that in the art. I hope we see this team again soon because the work speaks for itself.

    Pick this up and give it to your kids in the future.
