On Maribou’s recommendation, I finished A God Somewhere yesterday. While she was right that it did a decent job evoking catharsis, in the Greek sense, I put the comic down wondering “what in the heck was the author trying to say?”
It’s the story of the best friend of a guy who survives an explosion and, suddenly, discovers that he has Superman-esque powers. The superpowered guy travels through a period where he tries to save everyone, a period where he kills anyone who annoys him, and then a period of withdrawing entirely from civilization… and we see all this through the eyes of his best friend.
Yeah, I saw this as an interesting conceit myself. It’s the execution that left me scratching my head. Back to Fringe.
So… what are you reading and/or watching?
