A God Somewhere

A God Somewhere is a new DC graphic novel written by John Arcudi and drawn by Peter Snejbjerg. A God Somewhere is one of those books that is hard to write about because the less others know before reading it, the better the work is as the developments within unfold without the reader's prior knowledge of those developments forthcoming. Mike Mignola (Hellboy), with his cover quote, "The most human take on the superhero story I have ever seen." best describes what A God Somewhere is about, so I'll leave my commentary about the story at that, only adding that the four characters that writer John Arcudi focuses on are richly developed and the main reason this book resonates as it does.


As anyone can see from this interior page from A God Somewhere, artist Peter Snejbjerg knows his way around a comic page. A God Somewhere, with its almost 200 pages really allows Snejbjerg to put on display how much of a complete artist he is. Peter Snejbjerg is one of those artists that makes any project worth getting just to give your eyes a visual feast.
