Joe Casey and Benjamin Marra Present JESUSFREAK for Image Comics

Next spring, Image Comics presents JESUSFREAK, an all-new, never-before-published and sure-to-be-controversial original graphic novel by writer Joe Casey and artist Benjamin Marra.


JESUSFREAK is a bloody, two-fisted tale of heroic historical fiction featuring a certain young Nazarean carpenter who is having some trouble finding his place within a world of ever-increasing violence. He knows he’s different… he just doesn’t know why. Image Comics will publish the original graphic novel as a 64-page, full-color hardcover retailing for $17.99 in comic book stores on March 20, 2019, and in bookstores on March 26, 2019.
“JESUSFREAK is less inspired by any strict religious traditions and is instead more concerned with exploring the unique tension that exists between depicting a mythical figure and a historical figure – a tension that is compounded when, for many, they're considered the same person,” said writer and co-creator Joe Casey. “It’s also a chance for Marra and I to indulge in a …

REVIEW: 'Wasted Space' #5 by Michael Moreci, Hayden Sherman, and Jason Wordie

Wasted Space's first arc comes to an explosive close as Billy and the gang face what they think is the end game but it's only the beginning of their journey.


WASTED SPACE #5
Writer: Michael Moreci Artist: Hayden Sherman, Jason Wordie Letterer: Jim Campbell Publisher: Vault Comics Release Date: September 12, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)

Michael Moreci, Hayden Sherman, and Jason Wordie have created one giant and thoughtful sci-fi adventure full of ideas and moral dilemmas. Moreci's love of the genre and Star Wars, in particular, shines through as this ragtag group of former prophets and a sex machine seek redemption while trying to save the universe. 
The conclusion of its first arc takes on some unexpected twists and new conflicts. It's also a satisfying ending of sorts of what was built through the first four issues. At its core is Billy's guilt that drives his desire to "unfuck the universe" when his endorsement of a tyrannical leader led to…
