Book Review: Godshaper #1 by Simon Spurrier

Godshaper #1Goodreads Synopsis

Written by Eisner Award-nominated writer Simon Spurrier (The Spire, X-Men Legacy) and illustrated by breakout talent Jonas Goonface, Godshaper introduces a vast world where there’s a god for every person and a person for every god…though for Ennay, unfortunately exceptions may apply. People like him are Godshapers, godless social pariahs with the ability to mold and shape the gods of others. Paired with Bud, an off-kilter but affectionate god without a human, the two travel from town to town looking for shelter, a hot meal, and the next paying rock ‘n’ roll gig


This comic tells us a story where the world is so much different than we know but at the same time I feel like it could just as easily relate to the world we’re currently living in.

In this comic there is a god for every person and a person for every god. Of course you get the exceptions and those few who are raised without a god are called ‘godshapers’.

We follow musician Ennay- a godshaper- and Bud- a god without a human. Together they go from town to town standing out while also trying to fit in. Even though shapers were raised without gods and belief, they were given a fit: they can mold and shape godflesh. While Ennay uses this ability to keep customers busy, Bud scavenges for food and useful items nearby.

“You know what it is to be a shaper–really? Everyone needs ya, nobody wants ya.”

I like the idea of this comic and it seems like it’s going to go far. The writing was awesome and fast-paced and the artwork was amazing!

I can’t wait to continue this comic. I’m definitely intrigued and have high hopes for the continuation.
