Two books are hitting the comic shops this week from Avatar Press. First up is issue #38 of God Is Dead where Mike Costa brings us a change in direction for the battle of deities. And then Alan Moore’s Providence #2, the ad-free giant issue drawn by fan favorite artist Jacen Burrows.
God is Dead #38
Mike Costa has crafted some tales worthy of the ancient mythologies that spawned them, but now something in the god ravaged world has changed. After a hundred years of petty gods squabbling and destroying everything around them, suddenly the voices from the void are quiet. Are all the gods dead at last? Or has something even more sinister come to plague a world that has already endured so much? The most ambitious story yet unfolds in the pages of God is Dead! Available with Regular & End of Days Covers by Jacen Burrows,Enchanting & Iconic Covers by Jose Luis, a Carnage Wraparound Cover by German Nobile, and a special Gilded Incentive Cover also by Burrows.
In this giant-size, ad-free, second issue, Alan Moore’s breathtaking epic PROVIDENCE continues to weave a complex tapestry of modern horror. With his artistic partner Jacen Burrows, they lead the main character Robert Black on the first leg of his exploration of the seedy underbelly of America. Moore has designed every cover, every single page, and every nuance of this work to create his most fully-realized vision to date. There are no ads, with all 40 pages written by Moore. Painstakingly researched, meticulously produced, this is a sequential masterpiece that will serve as important a call to the next generation of comic book writers as Watchmen did 30 years ago: this is a definitive demonstration of just how good a comic book can be. Available with Regular, Pantheon, Portrait, Dreamscape Wraparound, Women of HPL, and a special Ancient Tome Incentive cover, all by collaborator Jacen Burrows.
