Jesus Christ, comic star (Do you think you’re what they say you are?)

Faith Series: Jesus Christ

Faith Series: Jesus Christ

Bluewater Productions has received international publicity, and more than a little criticism, for its biographies of political and cultural figures ranging from Barack Obama and Sarah Palin to Princess Diana and Stephenie Meyer.

But in April the Washington-based publisher is setting its sights a little higher. No, not Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor or even political pundit Rush Limbaugh (although they’re both getting biographies). Go higher.

That’s the one: Jesus Christ. Hey, his first biography still sells pretty well, so why not?

The 32-page Jesus Christ, which launches the publisher’s Faith Series line, “tackles the life of arguably the most famous person in history” and “highlights different aspects of the life of Christ to show that Jesus of Nazareth was more than just a great man in history, but proof of a providential force at work in the universe.”

So it’s safe to presume the comic, written by Don Smith and sporting a cover by Mike S. Miller — interior artist is listed as “TBA” — will have a clear point of view.

Unfortunately, however, it looks as if Faith Series: Jesus Christ will miss Easter by this much.



I’d like to see this published as several Jack Chick-format issues.

Man, yet another cover where the hero has to get jobbed by some new villain.

Do you think they’ll explain what the “H.” stands for for? And why exactly he’s on a bicycle?

Why’s he blacked out on the cover too, anyway? Is he getting a new costume?

David, I think the cover was supposed to include the blurb “IN THIS ISSUE, SOMEBODY DIES!!”

Hence, y’know, the mystery …

Haven’t bought a Bluewater comic, never will.

This book would be better if it was part of the POLITICAL POWER line from Bluewater.
