Select praise for GOD COUNTRY:
“There’s a solidness and relatability to this book (despite the space monsters) that gives the narrative some weight even despite the no-frills plotting. There’s something special about God Country.” —Newsarama
“Fresh, and original, and Emmett is simply awesome.” —Graphic Policy
“If this book was a gymnast it wouldn’t just stick the landing, it’d throw in a couple of extra flips and fucking shatter the Earth as it landed… If I could give God Country #1 six out of five stars I would… It’s definitely a book that you need to read, so make sure you get your LCS to order it for you, you would be a fool not to.” —Comic Bastards
“It’ll be the book that makes everyone say, ‘Whoa, where did this come from?!’ It’s a truly stunning debut.” —Nerdist
“Stunning.” —Horror Talk
