“Throughout his eclectic career, writer and artist Ho Che Anderson has explored numerous genres and mediums to tell poignant, expressive stories. Marvel fans might remember him as the author of Wakanda #3 or his short story in Amazing Fantasy #1000. Others might remember him from Fantagraphics’ iconic 1993 King, the critically acclaimed biography of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., or his sci-fi epic Godhead, which throws readers into a world where corporate scientists try to contact god and design killer robots. No matter where readers encounter Anderson’s work, it’s sure to stick with them.” — Comic Book Resources

Ho Che Anderson is one of the most talented creators in the comics business! He’ll be discussing his newest book, Godhead 2, the stunning conclusion to his futuristic corporate thriller, with Gary Groth, the co-founder of Fantagraphics and The Comics Journal.

About the book: In the second and concluding volume of Godhead, GH2 picks up from where GH1 ended, with Racer Calhoun and the rest of Cadre Zeus finally learning why they’ve been assembled: to destroy Oceanus, the scientific facility traveling through the Pacific housing the God machine introduced in volume one. They undertake what they hope will be a routine intelligence gathering mission on Oceanus that turns into a desperate fight for survival through the city from which Racer had fled, and leads to a reunion with Carys, the great love of his life.

Finally the cadre are ready to confront Oceanus and put an end to the God machine once and for all. The story’s finale upends the usual narrative expectations and concludes with a somber private epiphany that results in the triumph of human reason over a technocratic/supernatural savior.

Part Boy’s Own adventure genre, part men-on-a-mission yarn, part formal playground through which the author can exercise his restless obsessions, Godhead 2 is the action-based resolution to the psychological drama of the first volume.
