Gødland (Fall 2005)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Writer: Joe Casey; Genre: Fiction; Publisher: Image

Anyone who gets all misty thinking about Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's classic run on Fantastic Four will love Gødland. Maybe. Tom Scioli's artwork is pure Kirby homage, and gosh, scripter Joe Casey sure has a ball with the faux Stan-speak (''Face facts, true disbeliever''). But it's the unexpectedly freaky touches — like a villain who kidnaps a giant green dog from space to get high off its blood — that save this from being just another pastiche.
