cerial442's Punk Rock Jesus #6 - Revelations review

One Nation Under God

Now this was a finale. All questions were answered, and some of the answers were shocking.

If you've been reading the previous five issues, you won't be disappointed. Chris and his band, The Flak Jackets, plan on playing a big concert in Jerusalem. That can go off without a hitch right. In addition to the story, and the action, we get some social commentary too. Commentary on media, reality TV, and most importantly a majority of religion.

This book feels like an old school independent book. One of those you would always hear about but never actually see until you ran across the trade in the back of a Walden Books store. Thick paper and black and white. It may look better digital, but the printed version is more "punk rock".

It's a shame it had to end so soon. I loved this series. Punk Rock Jesus and The New Deadwardians were two of the best mini-series of 2012. Oddly enough both came from Vertigo. I don't think it was a major seller though, and that's a shame. I never saw a single issue on the stands at my local comic store.

Either way I highly recommend this series. I also recommend "American Jesus" by the band Bad Religion as the appropriate after reading soundtrack.

God bless you Sean Gordon Murphy and Vertigo for giving this series to us.

Though the punk only started in issue 3, this sad story that explores politics, religion and mass tv was doomed for violence and rebellion. Chris is Jesus' clone (or allegedly is) and his shows tops the rates every time, often showing him learning the c...

    Excellent Finale 0

    You didn’t really think this story was about Chris, did you?The title of the book and the cover caught my eye on the comic shelf months ago when the first issue came out. The credits for the book said the story and art were both done by Sean Murphy, which made me hesitate at first. Sometimes writer/artists can be extremely lacking in one of those two areas. Fortunately for Sean Murphy, that isn’t the case here in his first outing as a writer.So by last issue standards, how does this book stack u...
