First, there was the Big Bang that created the universe as we know it. Then there was a Bigger Bang that created a superbeing: Cosmos. Many see him as a destroyer. Some see him as a god or savior. What we know is he is trying to atone for something, and a despot in a far off world tries to manipulate him for propaganda and power.

This volume reads like a simple fable, though if it has a moral, I am not sure what it is. Not that it matters. It is a nice little story with colorful art. The art is in a sketch, slightly blurry sort of style, but it is still pleasant enough. As the book has minimal text, it is a fairly easy read.

Overall, I liked it, but is pretty much a title to borrow rather than buy.

3 out of 5 stars.
