DarkGods1-Diety

That's the one. Featuring drawings of ancient megalith monsters returning to the modern world… and they don't look particularly happy about all. But maybe that's just me reading too much into it.

Mankind prayed for salvation. As the gods of mythology fought and destroyed around them, they hoped and spoke in hushed tones of the return of the Christian God. Now Jesus Christ has risen and once again walks among mortals. But thousands of years of recounting the stories of the Bible won't prepare people for the truth about the All Powerful. They believed that Jesus was the savior of the human race and that he would return to do so again. Now the Son of God has come back but his salvation comes as the most horrific of prices. The most audacious arc of God Is Dead has arrived as MIKE COSTA delivers the intensity and darkness in a world of divine wrath. God is Dead Vol 3 TP collects issues #13 – 18 of the ongoing comic book series.
