Jesus Christ is missing! Sunstar recruits a team of lesser costumed heroes (who resent his great power) to assist him in the search for the Son of God! Plus the usual AHOY prose fiction, beautifully illustrated.

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Oct 26, 2019

    To put it simply and sweetly, this is a wonderful graphic novel. The art and story are fantastic and it is a well-plotted and thoughtful examination of the Christian faith in America. No wonder the powers that be were so eager to shoot it down! Then again, they were just as quick to condemn another truth-teller over 2000 years ago, if memory serves. Read Full Review

    Second Coming is still struggling to clarify its own purpose, as Satan's asides still feel forced, but it has become much more confident in its approach here. Read Full Review

    The humor is spot on but I'm not exciting by Satan's motivations. Also why couldn't Sunspot just pick up the car and fly it to the police station? However, Jesus in jail and how the Arian gang perverts the Bible was a very interesting narrative.

    When Second Coming was pulled from the release schedule by DC comics my assumption was that the story was potentially blasphemous or offensive. Second Coming isn't offensive nor does it even push the envelope it's just bland and uninteresting. If the Second Coming of Christ is this passive we'd be so lucky.


    I gave Second Coming #3 high marks because the idea of Christ returning and being instantly jailed struck home thematically due to the parallels to the New Testament. The implication was that nothing had actually changed during Christ's time away. In this installment, we're back to meandering and irreverent humor with the weak link of the series, Sunstar.



    This issue picks up with Christ in jail sha more
