Review: Godkiller Deluxe Edition Book 1
Fallen gods, sex magic, and quantum physics technowizards collide in Pizzolo and Wieszczyk’s beloved modern classic about a boy wandering the wasteland in search of a new heart for his dying sister.
Writer Matt Pizzolo has managed to create this brilliant, strange, and perverse story that gives us a world that’s extremely grim. Godkiller brings aspects of both fantasy, horror, and sci-fi to the story, excellently mixing all of the genres into one working world. While the plot seems almost classical in nature, the chosen setting and complex story aspects make it stand apart I’m curious to see how the story continues in Godkiller: Tomorrow’s Ashes.
The art in this book by Ben Templesmith and Anna Wieszczyk is a mixture of action, sexual perversion, and violence. The combination creates an atmosphere that keeps things dark at all times. Yet, despite the darkness, it manages to show the sorrow, and desperation of the main character, Tommy has as he searches for a replacement heart for his dying sister.
