PREVIEW | God Hates Astronauts, Vol. 1: The Head That Wouldn’t Die (Image Comics)
Published on Wednesday, October 9, 2013 by
Six years in the making, one of the most-funded Kickstarter comics projects finally makes it out to the general public this week.
  • godhatesvol01_coverStory & art: Ryan Browne
  • Format: 180 pages, full color, trade paperback
  • List price: $19.99
  • Sale date: 09 October 2013
  • Publisher’s description: GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS follows the story of a group of incompetent, small-minded, super powered narcissists called “The Power Persons Five” who are hired by NASA to stop all farmers from launching themselves into space in homemade rocket ships. Unfortunately for NASA, this goal is scarcely even addressed and the book focuses more on extramarital affairs, bank-robbing owls, big gross swollen heads, ghost cow heads, olde tyme boxers, tigers eating cheeseburgers in the Crab Nebula, buffalo judges and tons of aggressive swearing. Not so much a superhero book as it is a parody of basically everything and a celebration of weird that is jam-packed with references to RoboCop and Die Hard.

I don’t want to oversell what Ryan has accomplished here, but I gave God Hates Astronauts to a blind man and he regained his sight.

– Jonathan Hickman (EAST OF WEST, The Manhattan Projects, The Avengers)
