    I know I m not making any friends by saying this, but Jack Kirby s Fourth World comics is one of the biggest jokes in all of comicdom It s not enough that superhero comics themselves are so one dimensional and infantile, but the Fourth World and celestial cosmic in general took that to the almost comic extreme So as you can imagine, the Fourth World comics are an embarrassment in the perfect sense of the word.So really, what s a comic powerhouse like Joe Casey doing writing something like this I know I m not making any friends by saying this, but Jack Kirby s Fourth World comics is one of the biggest jokes in all of comicdom It s not enough that superhero comics themselves are so one dimensional and infantile, but the Fourth World and celestial cosmic in general took that to the almost comic extreme So as you can imagine, the Fourth World comics are an embarrassment in the perfect sense of the word.So really, what s a comic powerhouse like Joe Casey doing writing something like this Godland is a revamped homage to the celestial comics of yore, but the only difference being that it s as much an homage as it is a parody Like Jack Kirby s disaster, Godland is full of great artwork and I mean that wholeheartedly Tom Scioli makes every page come to life with brilliant colors and perfectly Kirby esque art , terrible plotlines, awful dialogue, and boring characters In short, everything that made those comics so terrible is here, plot holes and all In fact, Godland is just as enjoyable if notso by not reading any of the dialogue and just taking in the great artwork, which this Celestial Edition collects in a wonderfully oversized hardcover.This Celestial Edition also comes with a cover gallery, a special Christmas story featuring the greatest character in the series Basil Cronus, and an introduction by Grant Morrison not exactly praising the series It s really not worth going too much into what happens in Godland Adam Archer is an astronaut who has been bestowed superpowers by come cosmic beings and has to fight the constant barrage of laughable super villains threatening Earth At no point is the reader actually invested in the story because we all know that the tables can turn at any moment when the writing pulls a superpower out of its ass to bust the superhero out of a bind So really, Godland exists in a complete and total vacuum, for its own self indulgence We can only stand by and watch the train wreck as it happens.So really, Joe Casey and Tom Scioli s Godland is the only way to read cosmic celestial comics It s as terrible now as it was back then, except this time we re all in on the joke

    If you like the later work of Jack Kirby then Godland is the title for you Presenting Kirby as genre rather than trope, and utilizing Joe Casey s unique sense of humor and responsibility Casey and Scioli create something that is greater than the sum of its part.

    Didn t like the art was it intentionally ignoring the laws of anatomy in homage to old comics Thought the story was cheesy But I still got halfway through before stopping myself from reading any.

    The superhero yells its ability as it uses it, the drawing of humans within the story are not even close to anatomically correct and the story leaves a lot to be desired Worst Graphic novel I have read to date.

    A fun cosmic romp, but I m mostly in it for the art.

    GODLAND is a lot of fun I ll probably drop the dough for the second volume The only thing that kept me from giving it 4 stars is that it meanders a bit much I d prefer adriven plot Also, Scioli is at times awesome and at other times weak his odd perspectives, especially when drawing characters, sometimes works and sometimes doesn t.But I do love that Casey and Scioli are aiming big and cosmic, something I have a fondness for coming out the 70s era of Marvel Comics.
