After years of failed experiments that create scores of hideously deformed freaks, ReGen Corp CEO Anna Thorne eventually succeeds in her quest to clone the Savior on a remote island testing facility. A pair of twins are born, Jesus and his monstrous brother Yeshua (aka Damien). Both have the full powers of Christ, but Damien is hell-bent on bringing about the Apocalypse and cleansing Earth of the plague that is humanity.

When the Vatican learns of Christ’s return and sends in an extraction team, all Hell breaks loose in this comic book series from illustrator Mortimer Glum and writer Shawn French.

Christ Has Returned. A Lot.

  1. disgracefull. get ready to be decieved world cos satan really is going to present you with the roman catholic pagan jesus saviour and turn you agains your true creater Yahshua

    • Thanks for the heads-up, James. Quick question: How does one get ready to be deceived? I’m happy to do it, but it seems to me the very act of preparing for this deception might interfere with it, like telling someone about to walk into a surprise party to prepare to be surprised. I’d hate for all of Satan’s hard work to go to waste due to you posting a spoiler about his big plans on a message board. Please advise.

      Yours in Christ,

      Shawn

      • That would be so sad :( But… couldnt we just fake surprise when he gets here? I mean, you did bring up a good point about all the trouble the poor fellow went through to bring about our destruction… until someone spilled the beans. I think I will start working on my surprise face right away because I would hate to disappoint!

      • Sigh…
        The artwork is wickedly wonderful. I cannot help but admit the imagination in the story your crew has assembled is excellent. I get that this is fantasy and “outside the offering basket” thinking. Actually, I admire the work and polish of the artwork. However, anyone with a passing knowledge of the Biblical Jesus cringes at the theological inconsistencies and basic logical fallacies that this story contains when it comes to person of Jesus of Nazareth and how He is depicted. For example, Jesus, God the Son omnipotent, omniscient creator of the universe…is cloned and subsequently trapped in some sort of island? Yeshua (the Jewish side of the messiah? is Demonic…ouch) Both have the same powers…so now there is a “Quadrinity”?
        It seems easy to mischaracterize Christianity (heck, Christians themselves are guilty of doing it out of sheer ignorance and stupidity). Sadly, Christians have made themselves easy targets. One wonders, however how as story about Muhammad being cloned into evil twins, one a “Allahist”, the other a “Jihadist” would go over…

        Albeit its a fun ride, but, I think it would have been a stronger piece if more careful attention and respect would have been paid to the primary sources. Even if you don’t believe the Bible to be God’s inspired word, or the validity of Jesus as God the Son, dealing honestly with the characters make for more pathos and depth.
        Yours in Christ…@nge!

      • Thanks for checking out our project and sharing your thoughts, Angel.

        The inherent flaw with opinions about a story arc that hasn’t been published yet (we’re 2 issues into a 40-issue run) is that you can only base them on your assumptions of what you think that story will be. Much like trying to review a film trilogy after watching the first half of the first trailer.

        The one assumption I do want to address is that the Antichrist is the Jewish side of the messiah. That’s not even vaguely true. They’re both the Jewish side of the messiah. He was Jewish. Yeshua’s name is Yeshua because that was his name. He isn’t about to respond to some bastardized version of his identity, like his brother does. Yeshua is the side of the messiah who resented being crucified for suggesting people should be nice to one another. He is the side of Christ who watched, powerless to act without a physical form, as organizations founded in his name raped children within their sacred walls. He is the side of Christ who decided that maybe humans weren’t the best idea after all. I believe that the Antichrist as described in Revelation could very well be a clone of Christ. EFJI is that story.

        Again, thanks for the feedback. I’ll be interested in hearing what you think of the story once we’ve actually told it.

    • Thanks for the reply. Yep, you have a valid point. I was responding to the synopsis and thus made my comments based on that. You are correct that the story should be fully read to give an accurate critique, positive or negative. I apologize if I jumped the gun. To the Yeshua/Jewish aspect, I agree, Jesus is and Yeshua are synonymous. I guess, I can see the “anti defamation league” getting irate because the Jewish version of the name is used in reference to the evil incarnation of the alleged Jesus.
      On the other hand, the idea that Jesus had two conflicting sides may be a mis-understanding. or a re-interpretation of the hypostatic union of the two natures of Christ…am I on the right track, here? It assumes that Christ’s nature was dualistic. Biblically, it was not a “good vs evil” nature that made up the God-man, but a human nature taken on by God, unified, yet identifiable. In all honesty, the speculation you all have taken is interesting. But my Theological OCD takes over and has to examine the foundations.

      But then again…(I’m processing this on the fly so pardon some inconsistencies) These are genetic clones based on DNA from…the Shroud of Turin? That produce twin Jesus’…but not the real one..yes?
      And so BOTH would be corrupted versions of the real thing…wow that would be even more fascinating! Eventually they could conjoin to be a perversion of the very hypostatic union that the real Christ possesses…and thus be an even more evil anti-christ…I’d better stop before I hurt myself…:)

      As a Christian, my ears perk up when I hear of an art form that uses my savior’s name and rep as a basis. In all honesty, I do become exponentially more critical (in the proper sense of the word I hope). Though I do try to be as balanced as possible, being an artist myself. I look forward to reading the book and seeing how it comes together. If nothing else, it makes for great conversation. And who knows, perhaps the real Jesus/Ieseous/Y’shua “HeyZews” may find Himself glorified.
      In Christ,
      @nge!

  2. Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design.
    Wonderful choice of colors!

  3. I’m not much for comics, but I am excited to read this. A friend shared your Facebook post, so I looked @ your page. Now I wish I’d known sooner so I could have backed it on Kickstarter & would be getting it quicker! Can’t wait to read it!

  4. Desperate for the phantom variant of issue #1, I found a seller on Amazon! Its been shipped, waiting anxiously! But then I have to see if my local store is gonna carry the other issues… ^_^

  5. Just bought episodes 1 & 2 at Leamington Comic Con (UK) today because the story sounded Awesome and the artwork looked Amazing. I was not disapointed. Please, please, please release episode 3 soon. I need to know what’s gonna happen next. This is the best story I have read in ages. Keep up the top work.

    • Thanks so much, Simon. It’s great to hear you’re enjoying our twisted tale. Mortimer Glum is hard at work on the pages for Episode 3 and it is going to be many shades of awesome. If you’re on Facebook, we have a great community of fans there. We put out regular updates and always have contests running. http://www.facebook.com/JesusIsland

      We also have a video game in development that is a prequel to the comics. You’ll play as the teenage Antichrist and three custom made mutant freaks. It’ll be a POV dungeon crawler for mobile devices. It’ll give us a chance to tell some of the backstory and learn how Yeshua got to where he is when we meet him in Episode 1. Good stuff is brewing on Jesus Island. Welcome to the horde!

  6. Nice to meet u guys today at the expo show. Your comic would make a kick ass video game. So much talent.

    • Thanks so much, Heath! We had a blast meeting everyone at the Expo. We’ll have regular updates on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/jesusisland) about the video game, along with some EFJI think tanks, where I toss out a game design question and have fans contribute ideas. Our first one was for Player Character Mutation Perks and was very helpful. I’m using several of the fan suggestions in the game.

Spill yer guts, minions!
