New Adventures of Jesus: The Second Coming SC

NEW ADVENTURES OF JESUS: THE SECOND COMING GN - B&W. (Frank Stack) Underground comics were known for their satirical assaults on beliefs held dear by middle America. None was more witty or biting than the very first underground comic ever published — Frank Stack’s The Adventures of Jesus. In this witty addendum to the New Testament, Jesus fulfills his promise “to reward the just and punish the unjust,” yet returns to Earth with remarkably little fanfare. He soon realizes he may have postponed his second coming a bit too long, arriving when the planet has fallen into an advanced state of decrepitude, i.e., the late 20th Century. Includes a new story by Stack. Introduction by R. Crumb and a preface by Gilbert Shelton. 160 pp. (7x10)
