Godshaper is simultaneously weird and simultaneously not. The world has gone back to the dark ages, technology-wise, but everyone got a personal god to compensate. The gods can be modded (Godshaper isn’t the most original book, but Simon Spurrier assembles the details in interesting ways), only you need a Godshaper to do the modding. Yet Godshapers don’t get gods, so they’re pariahs. Only the Godshaper the comic follows has an outcast god, leftover from when its person died. Undoubtedly there’s a story to be told. Until then, they’re unlikely, slightly scheming compatriots. There’s also a whole music thing. It’s a fine read, with solid art from Jonas Goonface.
