Ep 139 - God Country

This Week: In GOD COUNTRY, readers meet Emmett Quinlan, an old widower rattled by dementia. Emmett isn't just a problem for his children—his violent outbursts are more than the local cops can handle. When a tornado levels his home—as well as the surrounding West Texas town—a restored Quinlan rises from the wreckage. 

An enchanted sword at the eye of the storm gives him more than a sound mind and body, however. He's now the only man who can face these otherworldly creatures the sword has drawn down to the Lone Star State... 

Drinking Game: 

It’s all your fault - Every time the son and his wife argue, take a drink to cope. 

Sword of Swords - Every time they say Valofax, take a drink.

“Father’s Day” - Every time the word father or grandfather is said, take a drink (limit once per page).

The Quinlan - Any time the name Quinlan is spoken or appears, take a drink. 

Grim Determination -  Take a drink for every time someone says this sucks, but were gonna see this thru.
