"Joe is an imaginative eleven-year-old boy. He can't fit in at school. He's the victim of bullies. His dad died overseas in the Iraq war. He also suffers from Type 1 diabetes. One fateful day, his condition causes him to believe he has entered a vivid fantasy world in which he is the lost savior-- a fantastic land based on the layout and contents of his home. His desperate attempts to make it out of his bedroom transform into an incredible, epic adventure through a bizarre landscape of submarine pirate dwarves, evil Hell Hounds, Lightning Lords and besieged castles. But is his quest really just an insulin deprived delirium-- from which he can die if he doesn't take his meds-- or something much bigger?" -- from publisher's web site
Punk Rock Jesus by Sean Gordon Murphy( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 408 libraries worldwide
A reality TV show starring a clone of Jesus Christ causes chaos across the U.S. of the near future in PUNK ROCK JESUS, a new graphic novel written and drawn by Sean Murphy, the acclaimed illustrator of JOE THE BARBARIAN and AMERICAN VAMPIRE. J2 causes both outrage and adulation. Religious zealots either love or hate the show, angry politicians worry about its influence on the nation, and members of the scientific community fear the implications of cloning a human being at all, let alone the Son of God. Thomas McKael is the clones's bodyguard and former IRA operative, who despite his turbulent past is hired to protect the new Jesus?a baby who captivates the world, but grows up to become an angry teenager. When falling ratings force the network to cut Jesus's mother from the series the young star runs away, renounces his religious heritage and forms a punk rock band. And what starts off as babysitting for Thomas becomes an epic battle, as Jesus goes to war against the corporate media complex that created him. Along with his artistic credits on JOE THE BARBARIAN and AMERICAN VAMPIRE: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST, Murphy also wrote and illustrated the graphic novel OFF ROAD (Oni Press), and cowrote OUTER ORBIT (Dark Horse Comics)

But, Zak's caviare dreams of a peaceful getaway quickly turns deadly as he is shipwrecked and abandoned on a long-forgotten island. Without companionship, he bides his time with his journal, chronicling his daily struggles and hoping for sudden rescue. But, unbeknownst to Zak, the island is far from deserted. Miles below the surface lurks one of our government's deadliest secrets. Believing the future of earth will be destroyed by a mountainous asteroid, a program has been in operation to save mankind from its inevitable extinction. For years, scientists struggled within the underground facility to artificially evolve our species for deep-space travel. But, decades-worth of unsuccessful attempts at playing God soon littered the island with a population of living abominations. Zak Raven is about to discover that he is not alone.
