Some very interesting news came out today via Comicbooksheatingup. It seems that Sean Gordon Murphy (The Wake, American Vampire) has been receiving interest from New Line Media Entertainment for optioning his creator owned Vertigo series Punk Rock Jesus. Hinting at this via twitter a few days ago.
Punk Rock Jesus is pretty much written for the screen – and was ignored by certain stores in the US based on its subject matter. This has resulted in sporadic reviews – however the idea for Punk Rock Jesus – A reality TV show starring a clone of Jesus Chris – is not only original but very evocative. This news has resulted in one or two sales of raw NM conditioned copies selling for $10 to $15 – with Fine conditioned copies flying off ebay at cover price.
Vertigo’s Punk Rock Jesus #1 is a book to be looking for.
