In the early days of pre-production, fan Jeff Ansell (who appeared as the mutant with his eyes stitched shut in EFJI #1) suggested we create a legless mutant who pulls himself along with his arms. We loved the idea and Mortimer immediately got to designing the critter. Once created, we let you wonderful freaks pick the name and I weaved the new character of Meatwagon into the Jesus Island world.
It’s now hard to imagine this story without Meatwagon. He’s become a vital part of the Jesus Island mythos. We know our fans have tons of great ideas and we want to hear them.
HOW IT WORKS: Think up the most fabulously twisted mutant you can and tell us about him/her/it in whatever medium you would like. If you’re an artist, draw your mutant. If you’re a writer, write up a description. We’re looking for the most interesting possible character design, so whatever best helps you express your idea, do that.
BACKGROUND: Your Creation was made by ReGen Corp on the Malsum Island Research Facility and is one of hundreds of horribly mutated, failed clones of Jesus. At some point in ReGen’s brutal testing program, Your Creation earned the attention of Yeshua (the Antichrist), who saved it from extermination.
Who is Your Creation? What are its mutations? What sets it apart from the rest of the horde?
PRIZE: Our favorite submission will be turned into a character in Escape From Jesus Island! The winner will receive an 11×17 print of Your Creation, signed by artist Mortimer Glum, as well as a Mutant Design credit in the issue where Your Creation first appears.
