    This was a fun read--I mean, how can it get any better than reading a graphic novel featuring your all-time favorite band members?

    I really wanted to like this. I love Skillet’s music and was stoked to see they had a graphic novel. But there was no preface for the post-apocalyptic world they were in, and some of the “before” references seemed too current. The scenes moved too quickly without much identification of what was happening. There was no explanation of most of the story nor did it really tell me who the characters were until later. I typically like fast paced but this was too quick to where I couldn’t follow along. I really wanted to like this. I love Skillet’s music and was stoked to see they had a graphic novel.

It left off on what I assume was meant to be a cliffhanger leading into a sequel that I can only hope will be better written.

    Skillet is my favorite band and over the years, they've remained at the top of my favorites. It was quite interesting to see a new side of them and read a graphic novel written by the frontman, John featuring the members of the band as characters trying to save the world. Captivating story ending on a hopeful note that no matter how dark and bad the world may be, we can still find some good in it.

    4.5 stars. It was great! I loved the Sci-fi super hero style mixed with some dystopian. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I’m so glad I read it! The only thing I didn’t like was that the spirituality was pretty weak. I mean, it was there and I got what it was saying, I just would have loved to see a more straightforward approach. For anyone wondering about content, I would personally rate it PG13 because if a couple of violent situations. I also personally felt like God’s name was used a bit inapp 4.5 stars. It was great!

I also personally felt like God’s name was used a bit inappropriately, but I don’t think it was really intended that way. Really great read, stunning artwork. I hope that there’s another one in the works!

    I’ve been waiting for MONTHS to read this! And it definitely lived up to my expectations. It reminded me of a Ted Dekker story (that’s a HUGE compliment from me) because of the redemptive thread of hope. I love the concept, the art, and the story. More? I certainly hope so!!

    When a band I really like announced they were releasing a graphic novel, I hoped it would be good, but I could see it going either way. In the end, they can add comics to the list of the things they have done, and done well. There are a few rough patches in the writing (which is to be expected from a debut comic), but the creative team Cooper and the others brought in to support this story are clearly talented.

Art and design work together with some great visuals, and the story is a dramatic sci-fi/horror adventure that is true to the band's larger body of work while also being a legitimately engaging graphic novel in its own right. More than just a stunt, this is a project created by people who value the form, the genre, and storytelling in general--and truly worked to create something good. And they succeeded.

    4/5 For a band made graphic novel this was pretty good. I’m also really biased because Skillet is one of my favourite bands. The premise for the story is great, the characters are great, the art is great, but I feel like the dialogue really falls short sometimes. A few times I felt like I’d skipped a page because the dialogue didn’t make sense. I really like what they tried to do here. Making paradise with what you’ve got, sticking together, not being afraid, always looking out for your fellow hu 4/5 For a band made graphic novel this was pretty good.

Making paradise with what you’ve got, sticking together, not being afraid, always looking out for your fellow human. It was very wholesome, very Skillet. It was still brutal, just like you’d want from Skillet.

    So this was the second graphic novel I've read now. The primary reason why I wanted this is because I enjoy Skillet's music. Unfortunately, I don't enjoy Skillet's graphic novel story telling. There wasn't much for me in enjoying any of the characters and the story seemed to be a bit all over the place. Maybe this is just me adjusting to a different style of story telling and maybe I'll give it another chance once I've read more graphic novels. We shall see. For now I'm just gonna give this to a So this was the second graphic novel I've read now. The primary reason why I wanted this is because I enjoy Skillet's music.

For now I'm just gonna give this to a friend of mine who likes the band as well and let him be the judge.

    I got Eden for Christmas, and it was a great way to start off my New Year. I felt like it had similar themes to some songs from their Victorious album, (Rise Up and Never Going Back). Skillet is my all time favorite band, and they should do more comic books.

    The art is cool but I feel like there is a lot to this story that has been left out. There is a lot going on that didn't have much explanation, like is this supposed to be based in an apocalyptic era and where did the monsters come from? Hopefully, the 2nd graphic novel will actually show "Eden".

    Interesting, but also had me rolling my eyes quite a bit. Hard balance there.

    First time reading a graphic novel. Not sure what to expect I was a little leery of buying it, but it was well worth it.

    It pains me to say this because Skillet is one of my favorite bands but this wasnt a good graphic novel. The dialogue was pretty bad, the story wasnt good. I dread to finish it.
