Godkiller: Walk Among Us Celebrates Cosplay with Third Printing


Matt Pizzolo and Anna Wiescczyk have something of a hit on their hands. It's a unique hit to boot. Godkiller: Walk Among Us is set in the future after an economic collapse, a nuclear holy war and an alien invasion. It follows orphan Tommy as he searches for a new heart for his ill sister, Lucy. And it does all this while being part of a transmedia blitz. And Godkiller: Walk Among Us #2 has just sold out, marking the arrival of a third printing.

The third printing cover is a celebration of cosplay and fandom, featuring a fan-made photo of Samantha Lubrano cosplaying Halfpipe from Godkiller (photographed by Justin Brooks). Samantha sent the photo to Wieszczyk, who loved it so much she suggested it be a variant cover. Lubrano and Brooks re-created one of the series' most striking moments, when young anti-heroine Halfpipe gloomily stitches shut her own enormous stab-wound.

Godkiller: Walk Among Us #2 third printing is available for order now (DCD# NOV148197). You can also pick up the Godkiller: Walk Among Us #1 (DCD# SEP148373) second printing and Godkiller: Walk Among Us #3 (DCD# JAN151090) is due in March.

Full press release below.

Nice things are being said!

Pizzolo and Wieszczyk’s beloved series about quantum physics, fallen gods, and weaponized orgasms continues to garner acclaim:

“It pushed me further than I’ve ever been pushed and it establishes a new level of dialogue in the medium. In short, it’s mandatory reading for anyone who loves comics. 5 SKULLS [of 5]”

“Holy fuck.”

“This is the comic book equivalent of death metal, grunge and punk all wrapped up in a bow that says fuck you to the socially conditioned norm… honestly, I loved it.”
