Gods Head – The Best Comic I Read Today

Posted by January 20, 2010 Comment

Okay, mostly because I don’t get new comics until tomorrow. But still. Gods Head by Santiago Bovoso is an astounding comic, been made available free (though he takes Paypal donations), I’m about to send him $3.99.

Seemingly inspired by a mix of Grant Morrison’s Doom Patrol and Alan Moore and JH Williams III’s Promethea, it’s a slice-of-life, metacomic using iconic imagery and surreal narrative.

It’s a good long chunk of a read, it uses the online form well, recreating the aspect of a papercomic but then stepping outside of those constrictions, and when it threatens to go completely up its own arse, it pulls out a rabbit. Enjoy. I just did.
