Description on Goodreads:
Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. The team behind critical tongue-attractors like Young Avengers and PHONOGRAM reunite to create a world where gods are the ultimate pop stars and pop stars are the ultimate gods. But remember: just because you’re immortal, doesn’t mean you’re going to live forever
Ooooh man. This was just what I needed, when I needed it. The story starts out with a bang, and the explosion stays all the way to the end. I love the characters I have met so far, each one of them completely rich and fluid. Yes, this is basically just the introduction to the story, but I can see myself falling into the series head over feet.
My Rating: 5/5 for the art, 5/5 for the story.
Would I/Who would I recommend it (too): Anyone who loves fantasy, graphic novels, is a fan of SAGA, and loves mythologies being intertwined.
