The highly anticipated God Hates Astronauts #1 is finally here! If you’ve never read the webcomic, missed the kickstarter, (or been living under a rock?) you should probably pick up issue one.
A completely psychotic take on superheroes, aliens, and the nature of man (no really it is! ok maybe not, no it really is!) this series follows the exploits of a “super team” the likes of which you’ve never seen. A ghost cow headed super being, an impossible upside-down faced girl, and a Chicago cop with robot arms. And they have a platoon (at least) of magic space bears (meh doesn’t everybody?) I’d love to give you a plot synopsis but it would be futile, this book is going wherever it wants, whenever it wants.
Terms like “irreverent” and “Crosses more lines than Lenny Bruce under the influence” get bandied about often but this time they are totally deserved. An f-bomb loaded, violent, damn well drawn and well written book. If you think The Manhattan Projects or Bedlam were just a touch too tame then this is definitely the book for you. Ryan Browne knocks it out of the park with a 4.5 out of 5!
Comes out tomorrow (09-03), get it at your local comic shop!
