The writing is obvious and snappy, theillustration is continually well-done, and the subjects selected are a thorough,comprehensive mixture of light-weight (pet rocks) and severe (Vietnam). --RobLightner

Each ninety years or so, twelve gods incarnate within the our bodies of the younger. they're charismatic and superb. They stand earlier than crowds, communicate in tongues, and ship them into rapture.
They’re rumored to accomplish secretive miracles. They keep people’s lives, both metaphorically or literally.
They are enjoyed. they're hated. they're brilliant.
Within years, they’re dead.
