Guess he never heard of Shaloman or the Hebrew Hammer!
Reminds me of Eddie Izzard’s idea for superhero series “Pope Man and Altar Boy” — to which he added “Blasphem-me and blashphe-you, blasphe-everybody in the room”
There’s nothing preventing someone from churning out Christian superhero comic books. Sheesh, as far as I can see, there’s a healthy Christian music scene in this country.

Er, if you go to, say [Link: www.christianbook.com,…] you will find a number of comic book titles. Why, exactly, this sense that Christians don’t get to publish stuff? Christian spiritual titles are a boom business, and Christian publishing houses are making bank on producing Christian media.

If this dude wants his son to have as cool a comic book as his Muslim buddies, “Archangels” seems to get positive reviews.

WTF does this have to do with Obama?

re: #3 Locker

WTF does this have to do with Obama?

Oh, you know wingnuts. He mentioned the comic book once:

“His comic books have captured the imagination of so many young people with superheroes who embody the teachings and tolerance of Islam,”

See: Comic book publisher praised for reflecting ‘tolerance of Islam’

That was enough to send their sensitive little minds over the top.

Well using that logic, every single Republican leader is guilty of trying to indoctrinate children with homosexuality and the liberal agenda since that’s all they ever talk about.

Heh, for some reason a thread on religious comics made me think of that Jack “Chick Tract” about Dungeons & Dragons being a recruiting gateway for witches covens:

All of literature is rich with biblical allusion, Buffy chases vampires with crosses, yet still the Christians feel wounded because of lack of media.

More mainstream Xtian comics:
There’s Turok, who you know.. lives with dinosaurs
[Link: comicbook.com…]
Then there’s Witch Hunters
[Link: marvel.com…]
Biblical Demons
[Link: marvel.com…]

I could go on…
