Image set out to bring some new readers to their series Godland by putting out a special 60 cent issue this week. It was at least enticing enough for the Doomers to choose it as this week’s Book of Doom. Was it enough to convert us into faithful readers? I’ll let the crowd answer that themselves. (And remember, we sort of care what you think too, so feel free to share your thoughts.)
“Godland is strangely endearing. It’s wordy as hell, and the Jack Kirby rip art is a little clunky, but it reads like an old science fiction movie – which I love. It’s like the superhero movie you’d want to watch from back then if they had the right effects, one thing on top of the other. I got the feeling as I read it that it was the book I shouldn’t have liked, but I couldn’t tear myself away from its suspension of disbelief and cheesiness. I might have to pick this up, which is probably why it was only $.60.”
Fin Fang Doom is a little more on the fence:
“I wasn’t really certain what to make of this week’s Godland #16. It certainly wasn’t a typical issue of the series. It was almost like a Godland clip show from what I can tell. It did catch me up on what happened so far in the series, but I’m not sure it gave me a reason to keep tuning in.
