Ok. For those who didn’t catch the news the first time around, there were plans for a comic called “The Second Coming”, which was to feature Jesus coming back to the world. The plot looks something like this…
Witness the return of Jesus Christ, as He is sent on a most holy mission by God to learn what it takes to be the true messiah of mankind by becoming roommates with the world’s favorite savior: the all-powerful super hero Sun-Man, the Last Son of Krispex! But when Christ returns to Earth, he’s shocked to discover what has become of his gospel—and now, he aims to set the record straight. DC Website
There was some upset… which led to The Second Coming being cancelled.
Well… It looks like the The Second Coming is indeed happening, as its been picked up by Ahoy Comics, a publisher that was set up last Summer.
Two comments here: First, is that it looks like the editorial boundaries are possibly less strict then they would have been if the comic was published under DC / Vertigo. (Vertigo being the “mature” wing of DC). Which makes me wonder if the finished product will actually be more… “dodgy” then it would have been, if the protests against it in the first place hadn’t happened?
Secondly. If I was a comic publisher recently starting up, I’d be tempted to have picked up “The Second Coming” as well… as basically, the internet has done a good job of advertising it for them.
