by ComicSpectrum reviewer Stephen Bretall.
The savior has been trying to be born into the world for years, only to be killed in the womb by a mysterious organization every time. Now, the latest carrier may be the one to finally save the world – or doom it. Check it out at:
What’s Awesome About It?
As of the time of this review, there are only 14 pages of The God Child up, but it has me hooked. The dialog and narration is punchy and engaging, and the pacing doesn’t mess around – more has happened in 14 pages than many webcomics could pull off in twice as many pages, all without feeling rushed. The art is solid, and the colorist should be given special praise because the way colors and lighting bring the comic to life is just wonderful.
Story-wise, the comic immediately dives into some hardcore action that tells me DJ Coffman isn’t going to be afraid to pull any punches, which is a big part of what makes me really excited for more of this.
Although still extremely early in its run, The God Child will be a webcomic I’ll be keeping up with, and is something I recommend checking out for fans of action, drama, or good comics in general. If religious subject matter bothers you, it looks like there might be some of that (well, it deals with the savior being born, so this is to be expected). Proceed with caution if religious or semi-religious overtones are a problem for you, but as of now there’s nothing that I found to be excessive that front. This is one to check out and add to your list of comics to keep an eye on!
