Reading Rob Dukes’ “I Am Become God” by Terminal Press

Most of the Metal Community  knows that singer Rob Duke’s is the deadly vocal force behind the band Exodus, but did you also know that he is a writer and has his own comic book? Yep, he is the main creative force behind the Horror themed comic called “I Am Become God” which is available from the folks at Terminal Press.  You might remember the company as the one who did a Dimmu Borgir comic about a year or so ago but that never was released beyond previews based on all of the band member changes shortly before it went to press.  Talk about a bummer.  Anyways, where was I?  Oh yes, my overview of “I Am Become God”. It’s based on a story by Rob Dukes script and letters by Keith McCleary art by Garrett Adderley colors by Adam Street.

The book focuses on the daily activities of an unnamed serial killer who we meet on the first page where he defines himself as being a truly crazy and disturbed individual.  I was convinced by the artwork on the cover which shows the protagonist pouring blood into a puddle on the ground out of a disembodied skull.  If the reader is not believing this, the killer proudly shows off the skeleton of a kitten that he had killed as a small boy as he introduces himself to us.  The rest is horrific history for lack of a better term as the killer gives us his “origin story”.   The killer is not really breaking the “fourth wall” of comics and talking to the reader in as much as he seems to be talking to the next victim on his list, but one does not realize this until the final pages of the story. My guess is that he plans on returning to this scenario with other tales of his bloodstained 9 to 5.

The Lines Are Massive

The shot above shows the lines as they wrapped around the block.  It was a lot worse than you see and this was very early in the morning.  I didn’t take any other outside shots since I needed to figure out how to quickly get inside.
