Cosmic Comic Book

Godland is a comic that purposefully sets out to be as "cosmic" as possible, particularly following in the footsteps of Jack Kirby's most cosmic material. In fact the artist Tom Scioli does a wild pastiche of Kirby's art--making it perhaps even more abstract and surreal looking. I find it to be full of energy and excitement and just slightly confusing. It's well worth checking out, and you can sample the entire first issue free here.

You can also get all of Issue #8.

The series is being reprinted as graphic novels--three in trade paperback so far. Or you can get the first two graphic novels combined in one Deluxe Godland Hardback.
