By Ho Che Anderson. Published by Fantagraphics.
In this gritty thriller, chaos ensues after a powerful corporation creates a device to communicate with God.
Godhead ricochets from the streets of a working-class African American community to the glimmering halls of corporate America to a mobile scientific laboratory located in the Pacific Ocean. A sprawling contemporary saga with a science-fiction edge, Godhead explores a collision course between science and religion when a corporation creates a device that can talk to God. Is this humanity's salvation or the equivalent of a Doomsday machine? Godhead is Ho Che Anderson's most conceptually and thematically ambitious graphic novel to date, his first in over ten years. Visually, he employs a variety of drawing techniques from tonal images to stark black-and-white to full color painting in order to convey a thriller that ranges from intimate domestic drama to globalist corporate intrigue.
