At least three comics writers with DC Comics are Occultists. They are Alan Moore, Grant Morrison and Neil Gaiman. Those three men are all of British origin, Eternal Anglos of one stripe or another. Neil Gaiman generally worked on more esoteric works than the other two authors mentioned.
Neil Gaiman is probably most famous for his “Sandman” series. The other two works he is widely known for broke through to the mainstream. Gaiman’s Hellblazer became the movie Constantine and a short lived NBC show of the same name. Gaiman’s Lucifer is now a television show on FOX.
Hellblazer’s John Constantine and Lucifer both started as supporting characters. John Constantine is an Occultist wielding powers of the occult. Lucifer is literally the “Lightbringer,” or Satan. I have never read those books but I doubt they’re wholesome or even healthy for society. The aforementioned books are from DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint.
The Soon to be Released “Second Coming” will Feature ‘Jesus’
“Second Coming” Seems Really Shitty, Disrespectful, and like a Really Bad Idea
The above image is the working cover. The “coffee-colored” ‘Jesus’ with Blackish hair seems to be a big clue how bad the book will be in general. ‘Jesus’ feeding some mafioso type with a gun bread is just icing on the cake of cringe that is the cover. If the cover was supposed to be a joke, IDK who will be laughing.
Based on some interviews with the writer, “Second Coming” is nothing more than a mocking of Christ Jesus. Coincidence or not, the book releases on 3/6. 3/6 could be interpreted as three sixes or 666. The partner of ‘Jesus’ in “Second Coming” is Sun-Man who is said to be a take on Superman. If you, dear reader have seen the shit-scam Zeitgeist movies, you may know they promote Christ Jesus as an allegory for the Sun (I talked about that theory here). More thorough debunkings of that type of scam, astrotheology, can be found all over the web.
One of the interviews the writer of “Second Coming,” Mark Russell(a relative unknown in the industry) did was an interview with Bleeding Cool. Russell said the book was going to be a lot about the limitations of the “beat em up superhero” and what Russell sees as false Christianity.
Russell’s interview with Bleeding Cool makes it pretty clear that the ‘Jesus’ in “Second Coming” is a blasphemous creation. The point of “Second Coming’s” ‘Jesus’s’ return to earth is to learn from Sun-Man.
Mark Russell: An all-powerful superhero, named Sun-Man, has to share a two bedroom apartment with Jesus Christ. The conceit is that God was so upset with Jesus’s performance the first time he came to Earth, since he was arrested so soon and crucified shortly after, that he has kept him locked-up since then.
God then sees this superhero on Earth a few thousand years later and says “that’s what I wanted for you!” He sends Jesus down to learn from this superhero and they end up learning from each other. They learn the limitations of each other’s approach to the world and its problems.Emphasis Mine
Russell observes Mega-Churches and Evangelicals do not have much of a Jesus based faith That is definitely true with the congregations of a Joel Osteen or Creflo Dollar and other TV/Mega-Church Preachers and their Congregations.
The Success of “Left Behind” Series Proves People have No Idea WTF is Going On
Like Kirk Cameron, Mark Russell Doesn’t Know WTF is Going On Either
Russell talks about the people of the world needing to be better and having a need to rethink about how they generally act. That is ironic because Russell is using a weird counterfeit, blasphemous and basically African Jesus to set an example for how to be, as a way to change the world.
In the quote below, Russell implies again Christ Jesus was not good enough.
Mark Russell: ……God was so upset with the fact that he(Jesus) got crucified the last time that he wouldn’t even let him look through the celestial keyhole at Earth to keep up.Emphasis mine
At best, “Second Coming” is going to be weird wild stuff everyone should shun. At worst, the book may be a degenerate’s mind fuck for those who are already degenerate and whoever else who doesn’t know any better.
The Sacrifice of The Crucifixion ended the need for animal sacrifices to atone for sin, The Crucifixion opened up a direct path to God by Faith in Jesus for all mankind. Sacrificing Jesus to the cross gave everyone an opportunity to be free from the wages of sin and be redeemed from sin. Mr. Russell’s forth-coming work is looking like it’s going to be a disservice to everyone as well as well as the comics medium.
Mark Russell said he has written two “Christian” works. Even still, it seems like Russell himself has very little idea about who Christ Jesus is or what Christianity is.
