God Hates Astronauts #5 review
God Hates Astronauts #5

Release Date: January 7, 2015
Cover Price: $3.50

God Hates Astronauts #5 is, hands down, the funniest issue of the series so far. And that’s saying something considering the previous four issues! You seriously have to see some of this stuff to believe it. Now, I’ve all ready spoiled the answer, but is this book worth picking up? Let’s dig a little deeper and find out.

I would hate to meet writer Ryan Browne‘s imagination in a dark alley. I’m pretty sure I would come out on the loosing end of that fight. I have NO idea where Browne comes up with not only these characters, but the story itself, and it’s in the story itself where you realize just how talented this guy is. You have a bunch of characters that don’t belong in the same universe IN the same universe, and as you read through the issue, you realize that where the story goes is very natural and organic yet chock-full of surprises, twists, and turns. And I haven’t even mentioned how laugh out loud FUNNY this book is. I lost count about halfway through the issue at how many times that I actually laughed out loud, and I can honestly tell you that I haven’t done that since I was a little kid reading Popeye comics. Again, anything that I could possibly write here would NOT do the comic justice; you have to read it for yourself.

God Hates Astronauts #4 is the “calm before the storm.” Now, I don’t really mean storm, I mean the COMPLETE AND TOTAL INVASION OF THE PLANET EARTH!!! Yeah, it’s that serious!!! So, this issue is a lot of set-up, and set-up issues can be boring. Was this one? Let’s find out…

Hot off the heels of his MEGA-successful Kickstarter campaign, Ryan Browne didn’t just sit around smoking cigars and counting money! NO! He got hard at work on what we all wanted — God Hates Astronauts #1!!! Was it worth the wait? Let’s take a look……

Ryan Browne starts you laughing from the inside front cover and keeps you laughing until the very back. I’m not kidding here, folks. This is literally cover-to-cover funny. We get an awesome space battle/disaster and that goes right into a man’s love affair with a chicken. Yes, you read that right. A chicken. And if you haven’t read the first volume of GHA (shame on you!), don’t worry! There’s a great character that comes along to recap what’s come before so that you are not lost or confused at all. I don’t want to go into story details because honestly, if I told you, you wouldn’t believe me. I can’t stress enough that this is one of the funniest and most entertaining comics that I’ve read in ages.

Smoke and Mirrors #3Smoke and Mirrors #3
Script by Mike Costa
Art by Ryan Browne
Illusions by Jon Armstrong
Letters by Neil Uyetake
Color Assists by Aaron Daly
Covers by Ryan Browne, Francesco Francavilla
IDW Publishing
Release Date: May 23, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Imagine, if you will, a world where magic is not just present, but is the primary means by which things are accomplished. Spells are used to make cars move, light up homes, and do pretty much everything for everyone. And like the oil companies of today, this world has its own businesses that enjoy the benefits of being on top and have no interest in changing the status quo. Smoke and Mirrors #3 gives us a bit of insight into the life of someone ripped from our world and suddenly dropped into this other, more magical, one.

Terry Ward is that tragic individual. A stage magician by trade, he is flabbergasted by the way things function in this new place. But as any good performer does, he manages to quickly adapt to the environment and begins to ply his trade. He spends his days in an out of the way marketplace pandering to the crowds. Things that we take for granted, such as the cup and ball trick or hidden coins, are wondrous to these strangers. Earning just enough to stay alive, he spends his time trying to stay under the radar, so to speak. That is, until a young boy named Ethan sees him perform.

Smoke And Mirrors #1Smoke And Mirrors #1
Script by Mike Costa

Illusions by Jon Armstrong
Letters by Robbie Robbins
Color Assists by Aaron Daly
Covers by Ryan Browne, Fiona Staples
IDW Publishing
Release Date: March 21, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Who needs electricity when you can have magic?! The first few pages of Smoke And Mirrors #1 takes everyday knowledge and turns it upside down. Suddenly, science is pointless and magical charms are all the rage! But is something more sinister going on here? The game is afoot!

We open to see the spokesman for The Trade Circle giving a speech to a visiting class of children. It enables the reader to become quickly oriented into this altered world that exists with magic as its primary power source. The brief explanation jump starts the story and we watch as one of the students, Ethan, rocks the boat, so to speak. Prying too deeply into the business of The Trade Circle, he quickly finds himself in trouble. But it also ignites the spark that all children have, the spark of curiosity.
