“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

“One of the most oddly satisfying action/adventure that I have ever read. It was breathtaking in a way that is impossible to explain, because it involves so much more than words. I highly suggest reading it.” —Outright Geekery
