‘Praying to be saved by a man who can fly will get you killed’

Comics writer Warren Ellis provides some information on an upcoming project he’s doing for Avatar Press, titled Supergod:


…in the world of SUPERGOD, superhumans are the ultimate expression of the Messiah complex, and scientists can build Messiahs who will fly down from the skies to save the world. No-one thought about how they’d save the world — or even if they’d want to. So begins the apocalyptic tomorrow of SUPERGOD — the story of how supermen killed us all and ended the world just because we wanted to be rescued by human-shaped things from beyond Science itself. Take every superhero comic ever published, shove them into a nuclear-powered blender, soak it in bad vodka and set the whole thing alight — and SUPERGOD will crawl out and eat your brain.

SUPERGOD: praying to be saved by a man who can fly will get you killed.

The art is by Garrie Gastonny, who did the art on Radical’s Caliber mini-series. The book will be out this fall.

Yay. Another Warren Ellis “Superheros suck” screed.

Red hot pokers are more interesting.
