Review: ★★★★☆

From time to time I get the pleasure of reviewing a book I haven’t read but I’ve seen on the shelves. God Complex is another from the Glitch Studio, who produces Bonehead and Dissonance. The design of the book shows the same similarities. It’s sharp technical design that really lets the book stand out. Now the story of issue #4 drops us into the middle of a disaster of the character Seneca. The book’s characters and “dogma” of the story revolves around Greek/Roman mythology.  There is a character named Hephaestus that exists in and out what the book refers to as the stream. It’s life after death reference that also includes the stream of life. It’s all inferred in the God Complex title of the book.  The thing that makes the story really interesting is that the characters have robotic faces/masks. The design makes each character stand out as an individual. Prasetya’s art design and style reminds me of Bryan Hitch and the sense of realism works well in this book. At this point, even if you jump on the book as new reader, there’s enough mystery and intrigue to prompt a read of the next issue.
