Publisher’s Summary: “As Seneca investigates an attack by the church on the digital alter-realm known as the Stream, his world is turned upside down by the emergence of the resistance—a group sworn to oppose the sinister Rulers and all they stand for. And when tragedy strikes, Seneca is forced to enter the wiretapped world of the Fates, who use predictive analytics to foresee his ultimate fate!”
Only two issues into this series and I’m hooked. God Complex perfectly blends Mythology and Science Fiction in a way that is completely and utterly captivating. In Issue #2, Seneca continues to trek deeper down the rabbit hole, and in doing so, finds himself standing before the Fates, questioning his beliefs. The design of these futuristic Fates not only perfectly fits the world of God Complex, but it’s also intriguing as the Fates are not so much of mystic fortunetellers as they are interpreters of the epic amount of data that is available to them. This concept is a novel one, and both writer Paul Jenkins and artist Hendry Prasetya should be applauded for their work on the Fates’ ‘design.’
God Complex is rich with character and emotion, and as the story progresses, I find myself appreciating it more and more. The plot is progressing along nicely as it thickens, and Jenkins’ pacing is just fast enough to keep things interesting while also allowing readers to absorb the copious amount of information being thrown at them.
The Bottom Line:
The God Complex story is progressing along nicely, and in Issue #2, Seneca, the stories main protagonist, finds himself caught in the middle of an issue that reaches far beyond his comprehension. Catch up before it’s too late; this one is bound to keep getting better.
