The year is 26 C.E. A young Nazarean carpenter is having some trouble adjusting to the violent world around him—and finding his place within it. He knows he’s different, but he doesn’t know why. Not yet, anyway. A bloody, two-fisted tale of historical heroic fiction brought to you by JOE CASEY (SEX, BUTCHER BAKER, THE RIGHTEOUS MAKER, MCMLXXV) and BENJAMIN MARRA (Night Business, Terror Assaulter: O.M.W.O.T.).
"Wild and wooly and somehow still holy, too. What a blast." --Victor LaValle, The Ballad of Black Tom
"The most unexpected book of the year - a Jodorowsky-like story of Jesus done in the style of Moench & Gulacy's Shang-Chi. Mad enough to start a cult of its own."--Warren Ellis
“Get ready for an entirely different take on history’s ultimate origin story.”--SYFY Wire
“Jesus Christ meets Bruce Lee—part Jack T. Chick, part Masters of Kung Fu, all hell-raising fury! Joe Casey and Ben Marra turn the New Testament into a blood-soaked, vengeance-driven graphic novel epic masterpiece using the vernacular of 1970s comic books and b-movies. Comic book fans and God-fearing Christians rejoice - your prayers have been answered!"--Jim Rugg, Street Angel
“JESUSFREAK answers the eternal question of what would happen if Christ came to save the world with kung fu.”--Mark Russell, God Is Disappointed in You
“Casey and Marra are MacGregor and Gulacy for the ‘10s.”--Tom Scioli, Go-Bots
