Goddess (Inglés) Tapa blanda – 27 sep 2002
Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Meet Rosie Nolan, a London zookeeper. She's a Goddess, one of eight planetary deities, only she doesn't know it just yet. She gets an inkling of her potential when her psychic powers activate accidentally and she causes a geographical rift between England and Scotland. Unfortunately, this somewhat overt display of god-like powers brings all manner of weirdos and sociopaths out of the woodwork, all looking for a piece of Rosie. Join Rosie and her unstable allies Jeff and Mudhawk as they embark on a bloody and apocalyptic quest for enlightenment...and try to evade certifiable maniacs like Constable Dixon and the Butcher Bruvvers. Unmissable!

the story is very good, even though i don't always enjoy garth ennis's gratuitous violence and perversion used as humor.
but the star of this show is phil winslade, who pulls off a miracle. every illustation is so detailed, and the details have details. and the details are carefully observed realism in perfect perspective and foreshortening, the given an extra punch of illustrative distortion to create movement and mood.
and if that weren't enough, every time we enter the world of the goddesses, the art becomes a perfectly designed homage to the 1920's "nouveau" movement exemplified by guys like "mucha". a style perfectly suited to winslade's endlessly seamlessly flowing yet carefully, proportionally designed precision.
The story begins as Rosie Nolan discovers her powers & seperates Scotland into it's own private island by accident. The story then jumps to several of the other key characters in the story to give us a bit of character development for them. We meet Jeff who's more of a loser, but means well. We also meet the infamous Mudhawk, a eco-terrorist who's more than willing to shed human blood to save an animal's life. We also later meet the villains of the piece, although the only ones that stand out are the incredibly brutal "Butcher Bruvvers", homicidal maniacs with the minds of children. From there Rosie has to travel with her friends in order to stay ahead of people who want her dead or to study her as well as try to discover who or what she exactly is.
Like other reviewers said, none of the characters are that overly likeable & at times the themes seem to be non-existent in favor of gratuitious violence. At times it seems like there's no real difference between the "heroes" and the villains of the piece. Both are more than willing to murder, albeit Rosie does it more to survive. (Mudhawk on the other hand? He seems to do it more for thrills.) In the end I was left with the image that Rosie could become just as harmful as the people who messed up the Earth if she's not careful, which may have been Ennis's whole lesson.
I would have to hesitate on recommending this unless someone's read it first, unless you can get a good deal on it. There's a lot of people who won't like this comic book, even after a few readings to get past all of the over the top gore & violence. Still, there's good reading in the book if you're willing to look for it.
Ennis' script will offer no surprises to longtime fans- We've seen this kinda thing before in Dicks, Hitman, and Preacher before. The art by Phil Winslade is great; You can actually see the progression of his talent as the book nears it's conclusion. The book picks up after a slow start, and the end is truly original. The book also has a new introduction by Winslade, and a gallery of his sketches and unpublished art. Overall, not a bad package, and it's hard not to fall for the loveable Rosie....
