Part horror, part coming of age story, with a bit of little mermaid mixed in as well. This story takes us to our world as well as the African God pantheon, which has let underpowered godlings trickle out into our world. Is'nana and his father Anasazi are tasked with sending the annoying godlings home before they wreck our world. Is'nana has different, more moral ideals than his father who wants expediency and they separate for a while which leads to the events of Volume 2. The way the other godlings are drawn evokes Lovecraft style abominations, so if you get scared or weirded out easily, this probably isn't for you.
I found the story to be intriguing and one of the better comics I've read this year. Is it as good as Saga? Probably not. But it doesn't have to be. I'd compare it more with The Walking Dead and other horror style comics before comparing it to Saga. I really enjoyed the theme of fathers/parents letting go of their adult children's lives. You can't helicopter around them forever, but you can back them up. Maybe not, if their plan is to QB the Browns when their O-line has more holes than the Titanic. "You wanna get squished, son? Go right ahead..." Vol. 3 is where we find out whether Is'nana gets squished or not.
Oh yeah, before I forget: Always be nice to spiders. You never know when the spider in your house might be there to help rescue you from other godlike creatures.
