"Run, don't walk to your favorite comic book retailer and demand they order Man of God! I was lucky enough to get to read the first issue and brother, does this book deliver. Slick production, amazing story, tight script and dialogue ... simply one of the best, fresh efforts I've seen in a long time. SUPPORT THESE CREATORS AND BUY THIS BOOK!! You'll thank me." -Mark Kidwell (writer of '68 from Image Comics)

"Thanks for letting me read the first issue of Man of God. I was fortunate enough to work with Yvel Guichet on what I believe was his first professional comic book work -- Eternal Warrior #4 at Valiant Comics. I watched him grow from being an incredibly talented newcomer to being a seasoned storyteller with a great sense of dynamism and mood. I think he and Craig are doing a wonderful job in setting up the story -- giving us just enough information to keep us excited about where the story will go. A dark and moody book that makes for a fun read!" -Kevin VanHook  

"A story about a Man of God who is transformed into an instrument of ... vengeance? Redemption? Both? The richly detailed and darkly evocative art of Yvel Guichet is perfect for this tale by Craig Partin that mixes equal parts of mystery, iniquity and tragedy." -JayJay Jackson

"The artwork was very well done and much better than a lot of things you will see on the shelves at your local comic store." -comicmonsters.com

"It's almost a misnomer to call Man of God a small press comic because it's so damn well done." -comicsbulletin.com

"I actually got pissed when it ended because I wasn’t ready to stop reading yet." -darlingdork.com

"Man of God is just one messed up book." -aintitcool.com

"Great storytelling techniques are employed in this strip, along with solid artwork paired with good dialogue by creator/writer Craig Partin." -crikeyuk.co.uk

"Man of God is by far one of the most impressive black and white comics I’ve ever read." -comicbastards.com

"Man of God is a black and white comic a bit reminiscent of Marvel’s Ghost Rider, Image Comic’s Spawn and perhaps a little of DC’s Spectre if they were written by an independent with enough guts to push the envelope on what characters like these should present in their stories." -fanboybuzz.com

"Man of God is the first offering from Pinwheel Press, and what an offering it is." -comicrelated.com

"Yvel Guichet and Stu Berryhill work together to provide a heavy and atmospheric symphony in black and white. Every panel attracts the eye to every detail, which makes reading this comic quickly nearly impossible." -comicspriceguide.com

Man of God is a self-published independent comic book, released by Pinwheel Press.  The first three issues were published in 2012 and garnered much praise and positive reviews (see above).  We've built a small but loyal fanbase -- the ferocity with which they promote the book to friends and fellow fans makes us proud. We strongly believe in what we are creating and that belief has proven to be extremely contagious.

But the market is tough, overflowing with brightly colored costumes that  make it hard to see the darker, more mature material on the shelf.  That is where we need your assistance, to help us continue bringing our story to the masses as we fight for market presence. 

We would like for you to experience our book first-hand in hopes that you will want to join us on this journey and support our creativity.  We have made a PDF of the first issue available for free here:

Our rewards are set up to offer you value at all levels, as well as provide you with plenty of options. If we exceed our goal we will continue to add unique and exclusive Kickstarter rewards for every $1,500 raised.

Our project goal is to raise enough money to help us publish issues 4, 5 & 6. We are working hard to complete the books: Issue #4 is finished, issue #5 pencils are done with one-third of the inks complete, and issue #6 has 8 pages of pencils in the can.

We plan to have all six issues finished and printed by October.
