Jonathan Hickman's God Is Dead For Avatar

GodisDead1Jonathan Hickman is having a banner year. East Of West is a massive hit from Image and Secret is back, Avengers and New Avengers at Marvel are leading nicely into his big Infinity event…

And now Bleeding Cool’s owners Avatar Press are to announce at Phoenix Comic Con the news of a big new book from Jonathan Hickman and Di Amorim, with the entertainingly provocative title, God Is Dead.

Six issues, starting in September, covers by Hickman, variant covers by Jacen Burrows.

God Is Dead tells the story of gods returning to modern day Earth and dealing with what’s been happening in their absence. And dividing the place into their respective dominions. And naturally man fights back…

This is the second debut series to launch from Avatar this year by a writer more familiar for higher profile work, after Kieron Gillen and Canaan White‘s Uber. And you saw what happened with that. Speculators, start your engines, you know there’s no chance retailers will order enough of these – or that Avatar will print enough either.
