    I haven't played the game yet, so I'm not sure how well his ties into the franchise. However, as a comic series, this was very enjoyable. The art was amazing. Just the type of visuals you rarely see in comics. I will admit sometimes the action scenes were a little muddled, but it looked so stunning it was still impressive. Just really striking painted art. The storyline jumps from a tale of Kratos's past from before the Game, and a recent storyline of after he's defeated Ares.

The storyline jumps from a tale of Kratos's past from before the Game, and a recent storyline of after he's defeated Ares. He's on a quest to obtain a mystical ambrosia which can heal his afflicted daughter. However, unknown to Kratos, the gods have all chosen champions that are in a race to obtain the ambrosia. So we have several battles between the various champions as well as some monsters thrown in for good measure. (Giant spider alert! WHOO!) Overall I enjoyed this, and as I said, I'm unfamiliar with the game. I think fans of the game will really enjoy this series, but it's not required. If you like painted art and Greek Mythology, pick this series up.

    Well.. I didn't expect it to be this good The story is set in two different timeline. First is Kratos early days as the god of war after killing Ares and the Olympian's decides to give him the title. and the second timeline is somewhere Kratos early years as a Spartan soldier(a more sympathetic, kinder, NO MAGIC CHAIN SWINGING SHIT MOVES & more of a team player Kratos) which is the main focus of this book.

Kratos first and only daughter is been curse by plague. Spartan customs says that every child born with such disease must be cast out and die. Kratos being Kratos decides to find an alternative instead of letting her daughter get thrown out on a cliff. So he, with his fellow spartan must travel to the place of Asclepius (God of medicine). To find the legendary food/drink of the gods Ambrosia. Yet Kratos and the others didn't know that the gods wager/game is what caused Kratos to seek the Ambrosia. Ares, Poseidon, Hades, Artemis, Helios, and Hermes chose a champion and gave them a reason to seek Asclepius magic tree. Usually by cursing their champions, family or tribe with afflictions that could only be cured by ambrosia. Now I'm grateful that Kratos actually manage to kill all this guys in the 3rd game If you're a fan of the God of War franchise, painted art and Greek mythos. I recommend this book for you.

    Way better than I expected. The art style was very different from pretty much any other comic I've read and it was very cool to conceptualize Kratos in such a fashion. The story was certainly interesting and was told in a surprisingly creative manner. The biggest problem I had with this comic was that while the art style was cool, it never lent itself to detail so it lost some of the epic feel that the games environments and characters often brought to the story.

    Sadly, the covers are better than the interior artwork. That is to say the artwork sucks ass, so the decapitations and many dismembered limbs aren't as enjoyable as they could have been. Kratos always emerges victorious, but there is no soul to the character. There are no memorable lines and I suspect there is nothing new added to the God of War universe. This might not be the author's fault, though. Somehow I feel a longer series would have done the character more justice. The story is fairly ac Sadly, the covers are better than the interior artwork.

Kratos always emerges victorious, but there is no soul to the character. There are no memorable lines and I suspect there is nothing new added to the God of War universe. This might not be the author's fault, though. Somehow I feel a longer series would have done the character more justice. The story is fairly accessible even to someone who hasn't played the games, but it's only obvious near the end that the events happen in two timelines - the earlier one is Kratos's quest to save his daughter from being sacrificed for her deformities and the later one is to prevent the return of Ares whom he has replaced as God of War. The focus is on the earlier quest, while the second features mainly the battles with all sorts of giants. The Spartan Kratos seeks the ambrosia of Asclepius to heal his deformed daughter. He has until the next full moon. What he doesn't know yet is that the sadistic gods are behind it all - they have placed a wager on Kratos and five other champions. Each is fighting to save a loved one or a community, so they will fight each other to the death for the ambrosia's healing powers. The gods don't play fair and will happily cheat in order to kill the other gods' champions. (view spoiler)[Kratos is joined by a Spartan army that defeats all the human enemies in their path. They fall to the wrath of the gods, though, with Kratos the only survivor. After many hardships and almost being killed by another champion, he brings the ambrosia home to heal his daughter. It is mentioned in passing that Kratos would be tricked by the gods to murder his family, but that isn't covered in the story. He is also successful in destroying the ambrosia in his second quest, so the followers of Ares will continue to hound him. (hide spoiler)]

    Fun, action-packed treat for fans of the game of the same name or people who appreciate the 300 Spartans or similar stories of mythology. The good: artwork is mostly well-done & there is good homage to the lore of the game as well as nice use of Spartan culture. The bad: writing is only passable, with possibly too much "hand-holding" by way of expositional overexplanation (probably a feature that makes more sense if you collected the separate issues within the overall comic arc, but sticks out so Fun, action-packed treat for fans of the game of the same name or people who appreciate the 300 Spartans or similar stories of mythology.

There are one or two spots where the comic panel placement or breaks are glaringly bad, as if this was hastily thrown together. But overall, enjoyable (especially for fans of the game).

    Decent filler if you are avid fan of Kratos and his adventures. The art style however might be a little too abstract for even those avid fans to preserve through. I did but found it difficult in some panels to figure out what was going on within the muddy mass of art.

    The artstyle man. The artstyle got me fucking good. I am in trance on how good both the story and the artstyle was. Seriously, if you loved the God of war games then give this comic a try. It is a nice lore piece.

    Hru jsem nehrál. Vizuální stránka je zajímavá a temná, občas dosti nepřehledná. Příběh byl takový tuctový herní a moc mě nenadchl.

    It was surprisingly good. The art is chaotic but nice at the same time. It looks gritty and messy, but it gets the job done. The story isn't special, but it somehow manages to make its place in the God of War canon, which is a good thing. It was surprisingly good. The art is chaotic but nice at the same time.
