5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Double Thumbs Up!, 14 May 2013
This review is from: American Jesus Volume 1: Chosen: Chosen v. 1 (Paperback)
The idea of Mark Millar doing a comic about Jesus might have every priest running for the hills but this really isn't what you would expect. Here is a sincere and open look at the teachings of Christianity and how they relate to our world of today. It is also a quiet meditation on childhood and nostalgia that really rewards the indulgent reader.

The art is superb with a plain and simple charm, perfect for its child protagonist. All the characters are distinct and there is real life in this deliberately two-dimensional style. The colouring is also wonderfully appropriate with a light and gentle touch.

There is an insightful interview with the author and artist, two `afterwords' by members of the cloth and script and art pages with brief commentary. This is a superb read all the way through but the ending is just off the scale brilliant. A classic Double Thumbs Up!
