‘Praying to be saved by a man who can fly will get you killed’

by  in Comic News Comment

Comics writer Warren Ellis provides some information on an upcoming project he’s doing for Avatar Press, titled Supergod:

…in the world of SUPERGOD, superhumans are the ultimate expression of the Messiah complex, and scientists can build Messiahs who will fly down from the skies to save the world. No-one thought about how they’d save the world — or even if they’d want to. So begins the apocalyptic tomorrow of SUPERGOD — the story of how supermen killed us all and ended the world just because we wanted to be rescued by human-shaped things from beyond Science itself. Take every superhero comic ever published, shove them into a nuclear-powered blender, soak it in bad vodka and set the whole thing alight — and SUPERGOD will crawl out and eat your brain.

SUPERGOD: praying to be saved by a man who can fly will get you killed.

The art is by Garrie Gastonny, who did the art on Radical’s Caliber mini-series. The book will be out this fall.
