About the Author

Chris Claremont is one of the bestselling comic writers in the world. He wrote The Uncanny X-Men for seventeen years as well as the novelization of the movie X-Men 2. He has been the co-creator of several top-selling series for Marvel Comics, including Excalibur, Wolverine, New Mutants, and, in the United Kingdom, Captain Britain. He wrote the Star Trek twenty-fifth-anniversary graphic novel Debt of Honor and a Next Generation sequel, Cry, Vengeance, for DC Comics, as well as" "Alien/Predator: The Deadliest of Species for Dark Horse. His debut novel was Firstflight, the story of a young female astronaut in the twenty-first century, to which he wrote two sequels, Grounded and Sundowner. He collaborated with George Lucas on three novels in The Chronicles of the Shadow War, and has delved into fantasy with the publication of Dragon Moon, a dark fantasy novel co-authored with his wife, Beth Fleisher. The couple lives in Brooklyn with their two children.

As the inspiration for the book Unintentional HumorT Brent Anderson is helping to teach the world about autism.

WARNING!! This Review May Contain Spoilers!!

If your a fan of the X-Men, then God Loves, Man Kills should be sitting on your shelf next to The Dark Phoenix Saga, Days Of Future Past, Mutant Genesis, Grant Morrison's New X-Men and the Whedon/Cassaday run on Astonishing X-Men. It's that good. For any life long X-Fan, this really is essential reading, as it truly captures the Persecussion against the mutants, without resorting to the use of the Sentinels or Bastion (however awesome they are). It's no wonder Bryan Singer used it as a partial basis for the second X-men movie.

Though this may not be for everyone, as like all of his mammoth run of the X-men, Chris Claremont's writing is incredibly wordy, and hasn't aged as well as you might think. No such problems from the art department however, as the sharp pencils and inks by Brent Anderson are brought stunningly to life by a spectactular paint job.

A true milestone in the development of modern comics, God Loves, Man Kills is still one of my faveourites.

10/10

I picked this up after reading several online recommendations that it was the quintessential X-Men storyline and I must say I wholeheartedly agree. A fair warning, this is not a long story, nor is it a story-arc or anthology; the book is only 1cm thick or so and doesn't take long to read. However, it is an exceedingly well written, well paced and beautifully coloured story that is as relevant now as it was when it was written.
If you're a fan of the X-Men, this is a must buy. It's a great place to start in the X-Men universe as well, if you're new to graphic novels, and is a great introduction to all the characters. A little familiarity won't hurt but it's definitely not necessary to enjoy the story, which is almost entirely self-contained. This is also that rare graphic novel that I would recommend to non-superhero fans or those who have never picked up a comic book before, the story carries it through perfectly and has a core message that anyone would enjoy. 10/10, look forward to reading it again many times in the coming years!

This is an awesome comic! Still with relevance today, the story explores with almost boundless imagination religious bigotry and the consequences of this in the extreme form of William Stryker and the Purifiers. Really, the story is just fantastic, the themes explored to their maximum extent and the characters are spot on, especially Magneto, whose world view becomes a whole lot more understandable. Also, the action is great and the team really well balanced with their powers. Thoroughly entertaining, thoroughly thought-provoking, thoroughly a classic and possibly in terms of what X-Men is all about the purest X-tale ever told!

God Loves, Man kills has an excellent story dealing with civil rights issues; the extremes some people are will to go to achieve there goals; the dangers of extremism in politics; and how loss can effect peoples beliefs. This the comic that the 2003 X-Men film was based on and i think that the film faithful to the story of the comic with updates for a audience 20 years on.

It's really cool to see the story from the X2 film as it was originally. It's always cool when Magneto isn't the baddie as well, but helping the Xmen
