Rob Liefeld kicks off Zombie Jesus webcomic

from 'Zombie Jesus'

Rob Liefeld, creator of Youngblood and Deadpool, among others, has launched a new webcomic on his site called Zombie Jesus.

The strip uses scripture from The Bible to tell some of the story, particularly Matthew 27:51-52: “The earth shook, the rocks broke and tombs opened and many men and women who had died came back to life again. They left the cemetery and went into the city and appeared to many people there.” And then attacked them.

Led by a possessed Judas Iscariot, the zombie hordes invade Jerusalem, with Lazarus the Immortal taking up arms against them. I’m not sure how often it will be updated, but I know I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens next.

In 2007 Robert Rodriguez held a contest in which he asked filmmakers to make trailers in the vein of Grindhouse for the SXSW film contest. Mine was titled Jesus Rises. And while it is easy to say that the story of zombie Jesus writes itself, I understand better than anyone because I did write it myself … three years ago.

Am I off base in thinking Rob has seen this trailer?

Oddly this sounds just like “Jesus Hates Zombies.” Weird. Running out of original ideas?

Did Liefeld re-translate the bible himself? Where he has “many men and women who had died”, Every mainstream translation refers to them as some variation of “saints”, “holy people” or “godly men”.

Instead of craving brains, these zombies will instead be seeking … “feeeeeet… FEEEEEET…”
