PopCultHQ received a preview copy of Silence of God #1 from Insane Comics. Available now, the creative team for this new mature readers series features writing from Massimo Rosi and artist Stefano Cardoselli.
Here is PopCultHQ’s spoiler-free review of Silence of God #1…
Death lingers and looms in the darkness. A man mourns the loss of the only thing he had in this world… his daughter. Before she takes him next, Death bestows Eric Block with immortality for one week to do anything he has to do to seek revenge. Eric is a man driven, focused, determined, and he won’t let ANYBODY get in his way.
I was pleasantly surprised with what I found between the covers of this issue. Massimo Rosi has laid the foundation with great potential to be a long running series. Rosi artistically blended a father’s intense passion for revenge, a man’s faith versus Death, and if given immortality, the onslaught which would ensue. Just a heads up, this book is very graphic in nature. Artist Stefano Cardoselli has real talent in capturing the somber feel of Rosi’s story. His sharp lines, excellent shading, and intense imagery are a perfect compliment to the story being told.
I would love to read the next issue and see what unfolds. Issue two, if done well, should launch this series for the long term. Personally, I hope we next see Eric possibly struggling with his faith or the fact he made a deal with Death. Highly recommend this premiere issue.

Silence of God #1 synopsis:
During a huge flood, ERIC BLOCK receives DEATH’s unexpected visit, who gives him seven days of immortal life to solve his problems and to avenge the death of his daughter Aurora. After the seven days, DEATH will take ERIC with her, forever.

So ERIC starts climbing the mountain of vengeance to the top where the true responsible people of Aurora’s death and the destruction of Eric’s life are.
