Ok A bit confusing at times Seems aimed at young males Hmmm. The Cult Hit, Manning Award Nominated Miniseries Gets Collected With Bonus Content When The Biblical Apocalypse Starts, Charming Bastard Bram Carlson Is Raptured Into Heaven In A Clerical Error After He S Sent Back To Earth, Bram Decides To Cash In The End Of The World For All It S Worth But Can His Anxious Roommate Ben Save His Friend From Himself And The Mounting Forces Of Armageddon Check Out The Book The Onion S AVClub Called Hilarious And IGN Called An Amazing Series Note This was a NetGalley ARC.I just didn t find this comic very funny or really all that interesting I mean, all the super awkward things the angels would say were pretty funny, but otherwise this comic was just sort ofmeh.
