DIAL B for BLOG: The story of Son-o-God Comics

DIAL B for BLOG - THE WORLD'S GREATEST COMIC BLOGAZINE: "Debuting in National Lampoon #22 (pictured right), SON O' GOD was created by Michael Choquette, Sean Kelly and Neal Adams. Here's how it happened, according to 'A Futile and Stupid Gesture':

National Lampoon's Michael Choquette and Sean Kelly had long discussed creating a WASP superhero who fights Catholicism. Deciding to do it as a comic, they invented Son O’ God as a buff, caped, haloed Jesus (wearing a gold “JC” belt) who Clark Kent is a nebbishy Brooklynite (thirty-year old Benny David) who still lives with his overbearing parents.

Dedicated to the virtues of peace and love, Son O’ God sets out to defeat the villain Antichrist and his evil army of religious fanatics. The image Choquette and Kelly had in mind for the Antichrist was the Pope himself."

Check it out. And happy Easter to you!
