A reality TV show starring a clone of Jesus Christ causes chaos across the U.S. of the near future in PUNK ROCK JESUS, a new title collecting the 6-issue miniseries — with ten new story pages!

Religious zealots either love or hate the show, angry politicians worry about its influence on the nation, and members of the scientific community fear the implications of cloning a human being at all – let alone the Son of God. And what effect will this all have on Gwen, the young woman who is selected, through an American Idol-style process, to be the mother of the new Messiah?

All this leads to the hiring of Thomas McKael, the clone’s bodyguard and a former IRA operative with a turbulent past who must protect the new Messiah—a baby who captivates the world but grows up to become an angry teenager.

  1. I picked this up in singles but I hope the trade sells well. This series deserved a bigger audience.

    • I also picked this up in singles and agree it deserves a larger audience. It did lose some steam towards the end of the mini though.

    • Ye I think it just ran out of space to tell the story. Could have definitely done with an extra issue.

    • you’re right it probably could have run for eight issues like Joe the Barbarian and New Deadwardians did. Who knows what’s up with Vertigo these days?

  2. I heard that the trade has additional pages.

  3. If you missed this, do yourself a favor and pick up this trade. One of my favorites of 2012.

  4. TP? Really? WHY NO HC?

  5. I do have the singles, so no punishment for Murphy from me. But I’d really like to have this in a deluxe edition too. It might happen eventually… I can wait 🙂
