Just five issues in and God Country has blossomed into an epic, multi-layered tale that I have no problem calling one of the best damn comic books currently being produced. The more that I learn about Valofax and the world in which God Country takes place, the more interested I become in continuing on this journey. God Country has continuously gotten better, and as it stands, I am convinced that next month’s issue is going to be one wild ride.

God Country #5In God Country #5, writer Donny Cates does an excellent job in keeping the issue entertaining while also progressing the plot and providing a mini-data-dump that enriches the reading experience. The story of Valofax’s creation is unique, but Attum’s lust for power in prestige doesn’t come as a surprise since epic stories like this typically have a similar backbone.

God Country still has the potential to grow, but I feel as though for the series to continue on its path, something big has to happen, and it has to happen soon because as of right now I almost feel as though the story is coming to an end, and I want more. I don’t want a change of direction, I want some complication. Emmet can deal with it.
