I still think Churchill should be a villain.
Read the whole thing in an evening. I loved Book 1. It was crazy non-nonsensical action. Just wild. It felt like you were building up some wild adventures in time for Jesus. But book 2 was a let down(sorry), it’s tame and the writing style so different. Very little of the craziness of the first book. The art too I’m not a fan of, it seems to have gone from irreverent to more mainstream.
I was hoping for more crazy surprise, like instead of Einstein showing up to save Jesus it was a gun toting Santa or George Bush with a gun that shoots explosive turds or something crazy. That was the fun stuff the first book did that drew me in.
Wow, Jeff. I just read this also. And I gotta say the same!
I mean, it seems this book tried to be irreverent. There was a Japanese robot with a huge cock, and Ernest Hemingway in a giant mech suit, a huge steampunk Santa Maria, dragons, Dragon Ballz fights, and monkeys with futuristic guns throwing shit. But I think the problem is that maybe there wasn’t enough shit. We need monkeys who actually shoot shit from their future guns.
I’ve made an algebraic math formula, to really show this.
A = Characters who are funny and completely outlandish, like Santa Claus.
B = Them doing something involving fecal matter.
This is much more effective than:
C = Characters who drive the plot and
D = Who adhere to a theme. Like, you know, the guy who wrote the theory of relativity being in this story about time travel.
If the writer could just put as much A and B into this story as possible, and do less C and D, then we’ll have:
E = A lot of characters from all over the vast realm of possibilities, with the focus being “Jesus fights ______.”
I think that may be better. Throw the plot crap away, and just give the people what they want. The comic should just be pages of Jesus fighting different weird characters from, well, anywhere and everywhere.
Stop making a story. Make it more shittier, please.
*Shrugs* I’m fine with both styles as long as the pacing stays progressive. It’s rare to see a boring comic though.
