      WARNING: This review should in no way be taken as a recommendation. I am easily amused; VERY easily amused - "like a cat with a laser pointer," one member once remarked. With that in mind . . .I really got a kick out of this one. I see that most of my intelligent friends have given the book one star. You should probably bow to their wisdom. Me? I giggled and hooted and almost gave it five stars.The plot? Well, it's too silly to get into. I'll just tell you about the things I liked*, then you ca [...]

      Wow.Ever watch a movie that's SOOO bad, you keep watching because you figure it can't get any worse? And then it does? But you cannot turn the TV off?This isn't one of those so-bad-it's-good books, this is the it's so bad I feel like I've just had a stroke and followed it up with blunt force trauma to the cranium.Fuck.Don't be curious to read this because it's the worst thing ever made, it's not a cult thing, and if it is, that cult is full of morons.I have a VERY juvenile sense of humour; I lik [...]

    3. Jan Philipzig says:

      Trying painfully hard to be as tasteless and absurd as possible, the story's sole purpose is to be judged "so bad it's good." If you don't find it funny, though, it is just bad, and that is how I experienced it. Then again, everybody else loved it, so I may just be too old for this.

    4. James says:

      I wrote a review of this book that was published on , and you can view it here:amazon/review/R19SC2TOBut I feel I should add that I found this book not online, but in a comic store. A well stocked comic book store with an intelligent and interesting person running it.I'm not entirely certain that I would have discovered this gem without a well curated store to visit.So: SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL COMIC BOOK STORE!Also, definitely read God Hates Astronauts. The author, Ryan Browne, spent six years of his [...]

      What just happened? My eyes honestly can't unsee this comic. Actually, I can't really even tell you what it's about. And what in the hell does Browne have against Boston Strong Boy John L. Sullivan? I've never seen so many bears in Boston, guys. But it didn't catch me (even with all the wtf?! exclamations over my wondering head) so I'm not following up.

    6. Rae says:

      God Hates Astronauts aims very hard for "so bad it's good" but it's actually just bad. I wanted to read this since I first heard about it and was so happy that it was included in the second Humble Image Comics Bundle. Now I'm just glad it was included because I can convince myself I didn't pay any money for it but just for the other, much better books. As God Hates Astronauts aims to be funny and humor is a very, very subjective matter, you may experience it otherwise if you love absurd humor an [...]

      Ultimátní WTF

    8. Brittney says:

      When I first heard of God Hates Astronauts, I expected it to be a lot like Axe Cop—ridiculous and full of hilarity. Though the two are similar in that they take a very random approach to humour with unique ideas and characters, God Hates Astronauts lacks the childish sense of delight within its writing that makes the random nature of the plot cohesive and enjoyable.Written and illustrated by Ryan Browne, God Hates Astronauts is about a superhero team that works for NASA. But rather than wastin [...]

      Everything is possible in this bookI mean really everything!:) At first, book seems very strange, but after few pages you get used to it and start to enjoy every page, every new absurdity, every new bizzare character. Or not. This book is not for everybody, either you love it or you hate it. I liked fact, that all uncommon characters and situations work together really well and they are not self-serving. Main, more global story stays in background in first volume and everything is actually about [...]

    10. Noetic_Hatter says:

      If I were 20 years younger, I might think this was the coolest comic I had ever seen. But I have read Garth Ennis and Mark Millar. So been there, done that. Despite the raves it seems to get, there's nothing fresh here. God Hates Astronauts is yet another crude, hyper-violent, deeply cynical and unfunny satire of superhero comics. There's not a single likable character in the whole book - well, aside maybe from The Impossible. A couple of jokes do work, like the magical British bears and the pre [...]

    11. Peter Derk says:

      I've often wondered about whether or not it's possible to make a movie that's all comedy, no real plot or lesson.And now I've got my answer.There were plenty of jokes, and some of these references were clearly up my alley. But I need just a little more plot that runs through the whole thing. Something that gets the characters to do things. At the start of most of the issues, I was thinking, "Wait, why the hell is this happening? Where are we?"My dream of a movie that's all comedy, no plot? That [...]

    12. Darth says:

      I honestly wish I could give this zero stars. So when you see that one star up there, know it's because I couldn't give this zero stars. Ryan Browne you should seriously be ashamed of yourself. This was pure and utter shit. This was Donald Fucking Trump in comic format. You are a terrible person, and I will never, ever read anything ever again that has your name on it. I couldn't even finish this utter piece of garbage. All that said, the art was pretty cool. Never write again though. Never.

    13. Gökçe says:

      Çizgiroman özellikle de süper kahraman çizgiromanları seviyorsanız onlarla dalga geçen bu iş de ilginizi çekebilir. Absürt komedinin başarılı bir örneği.

    14. Matt Garcia says:

      This was almost ok, I guess lol. It's basically just a bat shit crazy mash up of all things pop culture with references galore. The artwork was awesome which is the one good thing that I liked about it. I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be one of those so bad it's good types of things but I found it to be barely even average. I didn't laugh or even smile which is unfortunate since that seemed to be the writer's intention. Is it the worst thing I've ever read? Not by a long shot but will I continu [...]

    15. Trevor says:

      This is one of the worst things I've ever read.

    16. Scott says:

      4 stars for the art and crazy absurdity. 1.5 stars for the writing and dialog. I'm going to keep going with this series because I love the absurd and the artwork.

    17. Noah Appelbaum says:

      If you think the above, out of context panel is funny, it is worth reading this book. I was drawn to God Hates Astronauts by the crazy, over the top characters that jumped out just flipping through the pages. It's a wild, silly comic that stretches the visual absurdity of classic superhero comics to some kind of insane breaking point. The ideas flow freely and rapidly, and I thought it was pretty funny, though much of the referential humor peppered throughout feels forced. Unfortunately, there a [...]

      أو كيف تقضي ع فكرة جيدة في خطوات بسيطةالكتاب مقسم لثلاث اشياء القصة الاساسيةوقسمين لبريد القراء و رسمهم !!! ماشي ربنا يوفقهم ابطال خارقين هبل وذو عقل ذبابة يتقاتلون مع رجل يدرب الدببة يصاب البطل الاساسي الذي لا يموت بشئ ف رأسه ف يجعل رأسه كبير بشكل قبيحف تنفر موزته وتخونه مع ا [...]

    19. Alex Sarll says:

      Ryan Browne created this ridiculous book himself, but in an alternate world creators who previously worked on GHA include Tommy Wiseau, Steve Aylett and James Stokoe. Put it another way - imagine what Axe Cop will be like once the kid discovers sex and foul language. Excessive violence, terrible puns and an over-reliance on animals with incongruous jobs (cat lawyer with jet-pack; voodoo bears). In so far as there's a plot, it follows an idiot superhero as his head gets ever more horrendous. I lo [...]

    20. Logan Young says:

      Well, this certainly sucked. It felt like this was written by a homophobic 10th grader in 2006. How did Image comics end up publishing this garbage? Maybe because of the art? That is the one thing I did enjoy, the drawing and especially the coloring were quite good.But a rainbow colored piece of shit is still a piece of shit.

    21. Jason says:

      Brilliant, this is what comic books were made for a mad cap collection of characters and story. This volume also comes with plenty of additional material which is just as madcap. I hope he make a volume 2 so we can see what happens in the crab nebula to the Tiger who eats cheeseburgers.

    22. Marcele says:

      A bizarre and sometimes ridiculous funny comic! Certainly a different view of superheroes graphic novels.

    23. Jacquelyn says:

      Absurd and hilarious. Think Homestar Runner meets Ren & Stimpy, for a mature audience. Don't go in expecting anything, just embrace the weird and let it take you on the ride.

    24. Brian Dickerson says:

      BCDER: 84Nice thick cartoony lines. Great character designs, and a lot of them. Browne does the three webcomic issues included and then there are guest artists for each of the 18 two page character origins. I would love to see Cody Schibi have his own book. Silly (the good type) short romp through world building.Caution, this book may be too much for those that dislike puns! And the names are great, for example - King Tiger Eating A CheeseburgerThis might contain the best special features I've y [...]

    25. Erin Cataldi says:

      The more bizarre a book or a comic is the more apt I am to love it. This was no exception. It's over the top ridiculous, makes virtually no sense is filled with bizarre plot lines and even crazier characters. There are 5 super heroes on a team, but virtually everyone else they meet is either a mutant half breed or has powers of their own. There are cheeseburger eating tigers, a starman with a ghost horse head, a cop with gorilla arms, unidentifiable creatures and more. It's insanity and you shou [...]

    26. Gabriel J. Clark says:

      I loved this book. When I first started reading it, I was thinking "Aw man, this book is so Stupid" By page 9, I was laughing my ass off. It's definitely a comedy. It's that ridiculous Will-Ferrel-movie type of humor.

    27. Paul says:

      Hilarious hijinxs!

    28. rövardotter says:

      Well this was just totally stupid

    29. Gaz Watson says:

      This book thinks it's funny, it's not. It attempts to mock comics and fails badly.

    30. Ricardo says:

      This is batshit crazy. Loved it!
