THE LAST GOD tells the story of two fellowships of heroes struggling with the same threat 30 years apart. One group will doom their world, the other must save it. Thirty years ago, a band of heroes traveled beyond the borders of creation and killed the last living god, saving the realm of Cain Anuun from an apocalyptic army of the undead. The legendary companions became the rulers of their world and ushered in a new era of peace and prosperity. But it did not last. Now the foul legions of the Last God march once more, laying waste to all of Cain Anuun and revealing that the aging fellowship may not be the great heroes they claim to be. With the world burning down around them, a new group of unlikely champions must band together and accomplish what no other has done: kill the Last God, once and for all. THE LAST GOD: BOOK ONE OF THE FELLSPYRE CHRONICLES is a high-octane, no-holds-barred dark fantasy epic from writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Last Sons of America, Warlords of Appalachia, AQUAMAN) and artist Riccardo Federici (DARK NIGHTS: METAL, AQUAMAN), featuring additional work from Kai Carpenter (BOOKS OF MAGIC), Dean White (ALL-STAR BATMAN, Uncanny X-Force) and Jared Blando (Dungeons & Dragons).

BONUS REVIEW by Rick Berg


Yet another Cthulhu like tentaclefilled, tendrilfied evil bad guy lives up the Black Stairs. Heroes with cool sounding names travel up the stairs. They come back down, say evil is defeated and 30 years of peace reigns across the land. Shock and surprise! Our "heroes" may have Ash Williams' their way around the evil god. And the price for their lies has come due! Murder and death creep into the city streets and before you can say Klaatu Barrata Nectar a new generation of heroes is needed to stop evil once again. A fairly typical barbarianish Dungeon and Dragons adventure unfolds with pretty descent artwork by Riccardo Federici. My biggest gripe is that the colors are super flat, muddy and just boring. Everything is just greyish brown and does nothing to enhance the artwork or story. There is giant lack of the fantastic epicness a story like this needs and this issue feels extremely mundane. I'll probably read the next one but it definitely won't be on top of the read pile.

I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
