[Ed. – Not how most Christians envision The Messiah.]
Forgive me, Father, for I have worn spandex.
A controversial new comic series hits shelves Wednesday, imagining Jesus returning to Earth as a superhero sidekick, and The Post has an exclusive first look.
The satirical work is written by Mark Russell and illustrated by Richard Pace, and if you think some among the faithful might find the premise blasphemous, you’d be right.
The series was set to be published in March by an adult-oriented imprint of DC Comics — home to Superman and Batman — but public outcry forced the work to instead head upstate to AHOY Comics, based in Syracuse, NY.
“I woke up one morning and had an email from the editor saying, ‘You’re on the front page of Fox News,’ ” Russell tells The Post. “Then the petitions started and media started picking up on it, and then I realized it was bigger than I first anticipated.”
