    The tough part about collecting God-Man comics is that when his fans see you reading one of the old versions, they don’t try to buy it: they try to kill you.

    I thought God-Man fan clubs were more grand and looked like churches or mosques or synagogues or temples or …..well you get the idea. The God-Man fan club depicted here is even simpler than the houses of worship the Jehovah’s Witnesses have. I guess this fan club is a new cult that hasn’t yet achieved the statue of a real religious sect. If they succeed, they will probably be the ones to redefine the attributes of God-Man.

    Does the last panel mean that God-Man going to be a computerized being now? I suppose the Internet is as close to a god as inarguably exists…

    A cloud intelligence? Pure being without physical attributes? Sounds consistent with earlier pictures.

    It’s certainly a good number to see on your slot machine.

    Be careful what you say, guys – remember, old Mr. All-Merciful and Loving will burn you in hell for all eternity if you aggravate him or break a single one of his rules.

    that was old testament GOd. Right now among the GOP he is also old testament God, who can’t possibly blend quite well with science. He is a White GOd, a GOd who thinks the worst sin is abortions, but doesn’t care about the lives of poverty and need that so many are born into. He also hates gays, other races and has blue eyes. I AM Glad THAT is NOT my GOD.My GOd is a loving, take care of others, who just want you to believe that Jesus was his son, and that he will not bother with 3,000+ sins. But c give the commandments as guidelines, to not go too wrong.

    A long time ago there was a very short science fiction story in which scientists and engineers laboriously hooked up all of the world’s computers. When they were finally done, they asked it the Big Question: ‘Is there a God?’

    Now there is a God,’ the computer replied.

    Someone nervously moved toward the power switch. He was instantly fried by a bolt of lightening out of a clear sky.

    Someone may remember the author and title of the story, a classic of its time.

    The last few comments remind me of what I thought after reading the first day’s comments:

    That last panel in the strip, and no one made a reference to Deus Ex Machina?

    God made man in his image? More like man made God in his image.
