Like fellow LDS comic book artist Mike Allred, I am now going to use my god-given drawing ability to illustrate my understanding of the Holy Scriptures. He did the Book of Mormon, so that's taken. I'll do The New Testament.

I read it last night, and I think I understand it.

Here's a rough outline:

What is perceived to be a star over Bethlehem, which guides the shephards and Wise Men to the Baby Jesus is actually an intergalactic virus carried by a meteor, which crashes into a rocky embankment.

Because the New Testament is the very first account of a zombie outbreak.

The rocky embankment is hollowed out and made into a tomb. Lazarus is eventually buried there, and he is the first to revive, and begins to bite the Pharisees. Protecting his disciples from the virus, now that they are awed by his power, is Jesus's fulltime job, and he's good at it. But what will happen when the Zombie Roman Empire and the Zombie Jooooz conspire with a traitor within to finally bring him down? And how long can they hide the secret of a Zombie Son of God?!!! :eek:

And then things get out of control and 5 headed lions fly around.

The End.

I'd buy that for $5.25

It's interesting, I keep hearing about authors trying to write a new take on the Bible. Wonder why?

Somewhere in there we'll kill Blue Beetle. Let me run it by Didio.

You know he's going to say "GREAT! But can you come up with 51 slightly different versions for next year's next big weekly series? - COUNTDOWN TO INFINITE TESTAMENT"

I always wanted to see Jeebus with a huge chest and tiny midget like feet with all sorts of lines all over his face and 17,000 pockets all over his robes.

Ugh, I guess it's gonna be one of those continuity heavy books that assumes I've been reading MIGHTY OLD TESTAMENT for 6000 years.

NO, you have it all wrong guy, the Ne Testament was made specificly to bring in new readers. All the old rules are gone. All you need to know is there is on God and Jesus is his son. You pick up everything else on the ride.:)It is the perfect jumping on point, espcecialy since Ehtan is retconing the history.

Oddly enough, Jesus and virus has been done already in Year Zero (http://www.amazon.com/Year-Zero-Jeff-Long/dp/1416534423/ref=pd_bbs_sr_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1196701815&sr=8-4

The plague carried in Jeebus' blood gets released in the present day - it kills millions - makes them look like glowing ghosts first before they die. So they clone Jeebus to bring him back to cure it. It was a pretty good read.

Is there anyway we can change the end? Nobody wants to finish on a down note.

Hate to break it to you, but this is a total derivative of my Vampire Jesus vs. Zombie Dinosaurs out from Image in May (or June)

I'll sue. :)
