This week, Avatar Press is shipping the final issue of God is Dead to stores. The conclusion of the 48-issue run is written by Mike Costa and drawn by Emiliano Urdinola and has some pretty cool covers by German Nobile, Jacen Burrows and Ron Adrian. Not listed in the solicitation below is that it's also the wrap up of the 8-part backup story called And Death Shall Have No Dominion with art by Michael Dipscale and written by me.
It has been a fun story to write and to play in Jonathan Hickman's universe and working with Michael has been amazing again (we did the last two issues of Lady Death: Apocalypse as well). The title of the story comes from the bible originally, but is also the title of a poem by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas which I picked because it was both appropriate for the story and that everything takes place in Wales… where my maternal grandfather was born. So there is a little behind the scenes information.
And of course, Bleeding Cool is a subsidiary of Avatar Press.
