It’s a bigger comeback than John Travolta, Ozzy Osbourne and the 1999 Buffalo Bills combined.
Jodie Christianson is an average 12-year-old boy, living in Peoria, Ill., when he begins to discover he has some rather immense, even biblical, powers. After surviving a car accident that should have been horrific (and very fatal), Jodie quickly begins to buy into his divine providence and promptly gives sight to the blind and turns water into wine.
But not everyone is ready to believe the young boy is the Second Coming, including the faith-shaken local priest and Jodie’s divinity is put to the ultimate test.
Writer Mark Millar and artist Peter Gross take the story of Christ’s return from the Book of Revelations and twists it into a brilliant slice of Americana with an ending that will leave you reeling.
