CBR Review: Supergod #4

I recently reviewed Supergod #4 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "I never understood other people’s reactions to Supergod. Sure, it was an oral history, a lecture in comics form, but it was interesting. It struck me that Warren Ellis was mapping out another way to approach superhumans that had only been hinted at previously: the superhuman as a completely different species. Something alien. For all of the talk of superhumans or mutants or whatever being different from humanity, they rarely act like it for the sake of making them interesting to read about month in and month out. In Supergod, Ellis explores that idea with superhumans created to be gods, created to solve all our problems, created to be alien and inhuman. In Supergod #4, the supergods created finally clash and the results are apocalyptic."
