    Overall, I will be continuing with American Jesus. I have already added it to my pull list and with it being a 3 issue run the story should move quickly to its resolution and I am curious to see where the story is going. If you enjoyed the first run of American Jesus I highly recommend picking up this sequel. Read Full Review

    I'm interested in what Mark Millar has in store for the rest of this run. I love the use of a Hispanic young lady as the new incarnation of the Virgin Mary. I like that the characters fully understand the weight of this undertaking and still push to give this child a chance at taking his place as savior. Gross has ensured readers understand that the religious under and overtones will be prevalent throughout, and a look at most pages will feature some ideological images. Read Full Review

    One of the most visionary writers working today is Mark Millar. He was one of my favorite creators in the early 2000's when he collaborated with Bryan Hitch on Ultimates. In the past couple of years, he's been on fire.

    I just reviewed Space Bandits #4 a few days ago and gave it a 10/10. American Jesus has a totally different vibe but it still a master class in storytelling and shows off Mark's versatility as a writer.

    Luciana has been having dreams of carrying the child of God since she was a very young girl. This continues throughout her teenage years. She starts dating and shortly into her relationship she inexplicitly becomes pregnant. The problem is that she's still a virgin.

    The story isn't anything more
