This was basically marketed as “Cthulhu in space”, which I suppose is accurate enough to describe the theme of the book as briefly as possible. The truth of it is actually even stranger, with the concepts of elder gods, modern gods, and the afterlife, given a bizarre and terrifying sci-fi secret origin. Burnham’s art is absolutely perfect for this story and he brings some amazingly surreal and disturbingly hellish imagery to the table. While I didn’t think the pacing was quite as perfect as Annihilator and the ending was a bit muddier (in fact I’d love to discuss the ending with anyone who’d like to, I say as if I have readers), it’s still highly entertaining and memorable. A book I’m very glad to have in my collection.
