Critically acclaimed writer/artist TED McKEEVER returns to the theater of the bizarre, as a small-town Pastor thinks the eight-inch Jesus that descended from a cross on the church's wall is the devil's work. Meanwhile, a recovering alcoholic's fractured reality battling his own demons is becoming all too literal.

    McKeevers artwork remains consistent, in that he continues to draw with an instinctually raw style, forgoing a colour palette, and merely relying on his powerfully heavy, but clean black line and shading work to bring his illustrations to life. His ability to take readers on a journey from panels of divine artistry, to pages of disturbing imagery, only goes to show the depths of his talents as he effectively portrays the inner workings of Chomskys tormented mind. While McKeevers style unfortunately serves the hit-or-miss market, his work honestly suits the overall tone and themes of the series well, and should definitely be checked out. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray May 26, 2013

    The magazine style format of the publication gives the reading experience a quality that is tangibly different to reading any other book on the market, which is possibly the best way to describe this increasingly intriguing series. Read Full Review

    I’m a sucker for a black and white book, and I’m a sucker for religious overtones in stories. Miniature Jesus issue 2 delivers on both fronts. I’m hoping the next installment will give us more insight into the plot of the story instead of continuing the introduction. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Matt Allegretti May 22, 2013

    Overall, If you like indy off-the-wall comics you should give this a try. I'd argue that McKeever's huge ambition makes up for the flaws in his storytelling. Even with its shortcomings, Miniature Jesus is still one of the most thought provoking comics on the racks. But I have no doubt this miniseries will read better collected in trade. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig May 23, 2013

    The progression is slow but, I think my randomness has paid off. A lot didn’t need to take place because I wasn’t bored with what was happening. For me, a lot of times I want a faster pace because I am bored with the current situation. Not here. Also, Chomsky is such an easy character to relate to because we are all a little crazy and self doubting. We talk to things that aren’t real too. Chomsky is struggling like any other human and God’s Second Coming or a rotting cat will no doubt help him to find his way. Read Full Review
