That’s a whole three new comic book days away from the end of the month; and here I am already declaring this one is the best of the whole crop? Absolutely. God Hates Astronauts is a tour de force, I honestly can’t think of a book that made me smile ear to ear before the book even started. What makes this such a great title? Why am I so eager to sing the praises of a book that seemingly comes out of nowhere? Why is there a man with a flaming cow head on the cover? Let’s get this all sorted out after the cut
