"Wonderfully bizarre... Deftly unorthodox and wickedly delectable." Best Indie Books Of The Year List
-Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Godkiller is that early display of genius. A nascent voice ready to make a lot of effing noise. It showed Pizzolo's skills, his tastes, his balls, and it set the stage for what would come from Black Mask and Pizzolo."
-Tim Seeley (writer Nightwing, Hack/Slash)
"A singular vision full of fresh elegant brutality and dark humor, it's like some genius commissioned Chuck Palahniuk, Terry Gilliam and Aleister Crowley to reinvent dystopia fiction."
-Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead (filmmakers The Endless, Spring, V/H/S Viral)
"Who knew we needed to kill comics in order to save them? Matt Pizzolo, that's who - the evil genius plotting to blow up the comics universe. His Godkiller is a horrific yarn of apocalypse, quantum physics, culture jamming, and conspiracy theory."
"I was truly moved. It's a dizzying read that will burrow into the core of your being. 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 out of 5 Skulls."
"This is the comic book equivalent of death metal, grunge and punk all wrapped up in a bow that says f you to the socially conditioned norm... Honestly, I loved it."
