Exploring the real world consequences of super powers, Arcudi and Snejbjerg expertly reveal the story of super-being Eric Forster through the perspectives of his family and best friend. After a freak accident gives Eric extraordinary powers, he saves the lives of countless people, but quickly morphs into something far more menacing and destructive. Veteran comics scribe Arcudi deftly toys with the characters, slowly uncovering their pasts through a series of nested flashbacks. Snejbjerg's delicate art and brilliant storytelling enhances the script, bringing a vital emotional buoyancy to the tale. The duo successfully re-focuses superhero mythos squarely on the consequences of the decisions propagated by those in power. A God Somewhere ranks among the finest and perhaps the most powerful works of their respective careers so far.
