Yes, good, more, please. ( )

Dreamy sighs from me for this book from me. It's got a diverse cast and incredible art, writing, colors just everything. I am on the edge of my seat for issue 6 to be released.

The premise is that gods are resurrected every 92 years and they well this time around become super stars. People follow them basically worshipping them and of course the gods get into trouble.

I read through this entire set so quickly it was ridiculous. I can't recommend the series enough. I think it is something that can bridge the gap between non comic readers. If you like things about gods then I can't recommend this enough.

I was floored by this graphic novel. I did not know anything about it, but I saw it on a wikipedia page that discussed transgender characters in different media. There is a service called HOOPLA that my local library participates in. From there I was able to check this out. I enjoyed it greatly! I enjoyed it so much that I immediately checked out the second volume and read it just as quickly as I did this volume. ( )

I love this series. I wish the author's notes from the individual issues had been included in the trade, but the comic itself? Perfect. ( )

Another one where I feel like the later issues will cover some of the shortcomings of the first volume. The art is gorgeous, the story is intriguing, and the twist at the end keeps it going. ( )
