2018 Book #5: Punk Rock Jesus by Sean Murphy

Book #5, what about the first four books? Let me explain.

First, this is Marc, owner of Alter Ego Comics.

Besides being passionate about comics, I'm also a personal & professional growth junkie.

What does that mean? I consume a lot of stuff related to business. Not just the business of comics and collectibles, but the business of doing business.

Part of my morning routine is to read for 30 minutes. In fact, one of my 2018 goals is to read 24 books.

Which brings me to Book #5 - five down in January, woo-hoo!

"Punk Rock Jesus" is set in the not too distant future where a company used the Shroud of Turin to create a clone of Jesus Christ. And they're broadcasting the second coming as a reality TV show!

The story includes IRA soldiers, religious right nutjobs, evil company men and innocents who got more than they signed up for.

It's a story about the media-obsessed world that we live in. About redemption. And about faith.

And it's really good!

Written and drawn by Sean Murphy, who's currently killing it on "Batman: White Knight," I opted for the deluxe hardcover edition of PRJ. It's filled with over 100 pages of bonus material and will look great on my bookshelf.
