CBR Review: Jersey Gods #1

I recently reviewed Jersey Gods #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Jersey Gods #1 is a charming read, but not quite what was promised —- yet. The solicitation for this issue promotes the story of a cosmic god that’s married to a Jersey girl and lives three doors down from his in-laws. The high concept pitch screams Jack Kirby meets Everybody Loves Raymond. The actual first issue is all set-up and getting to the point where Barock (the god) and Zoe (the Jersey girl) marry and live the wacky sitcom life of the solicitations. Not that there’s anything wrong with that."
