Im­age ( April)

Never one to shy away from trou­ble, Spawn cre­ator Todd McFar­lane’s lat­est project should stir up plenty of con­tro­versy. Co- writ­ten by Brian Hol­guin and with painted art by Clay­ton Crain, the eightis­sue minis­eries draws par­al­lels be­tween su­per­heroes and Je­sus Christ when a mys­te­ri­ous am­ne­siac man emerges with preter­nat­u­ral pow­ers that lead him to be pro­claimed as the Mes­siah him­self. De­scrib­ing it as “a more se­ri­ous take on

Monty Python’s Life Of Brian”, McFar­lane has in­sisted that this “sassy take on the typ­i­cal su­per­hero story” will not deal “with Chris­tian­ity or reli­gion as a whole”, but we can still ex­pect it to ruf­fle a few feath­ers.

Just imag­ine Sav­ior if Seth Mac­Far­lane did it!
