Bible 2 – Act 1: Jesus’s First Easter
Sequels. We all have seen a sequel in one fashion or another. Whether it be a book, movie, or a television show most sequels that are released are NO WHERE NEAR AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL! Now, there are some exceptions. In my opinion, Aliens is a much better film than Alien, The Dark Knight is waaaaaaaayyyyyy better than Batman Begins, and of course Empire Strikes Back is better than Star Wars. But what about books? Has there ever been a sequel as good, if not better, than the original in books? I believe that I have found one.
Trepidation Comics has recently released a sequel to one of the all-time classic pieces of literature out there. Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Bible 2. Writer Z.M. Thomas has really reached out for something and made it his own. Bible 2 issue 1 is the story of Jesus’s first Easter and let me tell you it’s one for the ages. Jesus learns that the Roman’s are still out for him even after everything that has been done to him. He decides………
No more Mr. Nice Guy! (After everything that happened to him, trust me, you’d react the same way to!) What we see next is jaw dropping. A rainbow Pegasus, rocket sandals, a war against the Romans, and Judas’ long overdue penance. WOW! This book is phenomenal!
He’s turning Jesus into FULL BLOWN ASS KICKER![/pullquote]
Now I know what some of you must be thinking. OMG! How could anyone think that they can write a sequel to the Bible and make it as inspirational as the original? Well, the talented Mr. Thomas has done that and more. For those of you out there that have tried to read the Bible but you just can’t get into it, Z. M. Thomas has made this story something that you can sink your teeth into. Along with great artists Amelia Woo, Anthony Tan, and Kevin Bandt, Thomas has been able to take something as confusing and boring as the Bible and turn it into something that we all can get behind…..REVENGE BABY! Put yourself in Jesus’ place. Would you just be able to forgive what was done to you just a few short days ago? HELL NO! You’d want to get a little payback and that my friends makes for a FANTASTIC story. Imagine if Superman decided to go ape shit and get revenge on Lex Luthor for all of the crappy things that were done to him. Well, that’s what we have here on a grander scale.
This is a series that may get some bad press but you won’t find that here. Mr. Thomas has a unique ability to take something boring and turn around and make it something that you can’t put down. Hell, he’s turning Jesus into FULL BLOWN ASS KICKER! This is the kind of God that I would be scared of breaking commandments with. I guarantee that if you start reading Bible 2 you won’t put it down.
