The horde has spoken and the newest addition to Yeshua’s mutant horde shall be named ISHMAEL. Congratulations to Eddey Gallegos, who submitted the most popular entry in our latest Name The Mutant contest. Eddey will receive a Special Thanks credit in Episode 3 of Escape From Jesus Island.
The fiendishly clever Ishmael makes his first appearance in Episode 4 of EFJI. As the story unfolds, he will often be seen scouting the way for Pariah, the seven-headed Beast of Biblical prophecy.
We also want to offer our thanks to Sam Mercer, whose P’nak the Harbinger submission was our runner-up, and Joe McBrady, for offering up our third-place finisher, Aquila.
Leaving a character’s name in the hands of fans is a scary proposition. There’s a reason no one else does it. You could get stuck with Squiddle McDimplefuck in your story. We’ve been crazy impressed by the amount of thought that has gone into the submissions the last couple times we’ve done this.
Thank you all for a kickass list of entries in our latest Name The Mutant contest and for your votes to select the winner. Ishmael will make an excellent addition to the Jesus Island universe. We’ll definitely do this contest again as the story unfolds, but we have a couple other contests in the works at the moment. Stay tuned for details…
