"Anarchy. We aren't here for any reason. We have no idea how long this lasts. Make your own decisions. Make your own mistakes."


Volume 5 finds the gods divided in how they're going to deal with The Great Darkness that Ananke mentions. One group wants to study it, another wants to hit it with a stick and the last group frankly does not care what anyone wants to do - just don't drag them into it.

I don't know how to describe this book but I think the gods have all started their descent into madness, and the comic sure seems to follow it. It feels disjointed and intense, and there were times when I wasn't sure if I was reading the correct order of panels.

This volume has left me with questions and concerns that I hope volume 6 attempts to at least try to answer.

Having said that, man the art is just beautiful and it continues to impress.
