Description


"The Nanny" meets The Bible, but with a superpowered baby – a religious satirical graphic novel about Jesus babysitting the infant son of his roommate, the superhero called Sunstar.

You welcomed Jesus with open arms in Second Coming. You marveled at his miraculous return in Second Coming: Only Begotten Son. Now the book that turned the comics industry upside-down with “quite a bit of humor…[and] a lot of heart” (The New York Times) is back for its third act with Second Coming: Trinity.

Written and co-created by 2022 Eisner winner Mark Russell (Not All Robots, BILLIONAIRE ISLAND) with art by co-creator Richard Pace and Leonard Kirk, Second Coming: Trinity finds Jesus Christ, the Son of God, tackling his biggest challenge in 2000 years: babysitting a child with super powers! Meanwhile, his roommate—the superhero called Sunstar—faces his greatest enemy, and his own guilt, in a court of law.

Second Coming: Holy Trinity collects all 6 issues of the series.

About the Author


Mark Russell is the GLAAD and Eisner Award-winning writer behind The Flintstones, Second Coming, Billionaire IslandSuperman: Space Age and Batman: Dark Age, as well as many other comic book series. He is also the author of two books.

 

Leonard Kirk began his comic book career with Malibu Comics. He has drawn numerous titles for Marvel and DC, including Fantastic Four, Star Wars and extended collaborations with Peter David on Supergirl and X-Factor. He, wisely, lives north of the border and recently drew a revival of the Canadian comics icon Captain Canuck and a return to the post-apocalyptic world of Marvel Zombies.

Richard Pace resides in Toronto, Canada, looking down upon the silly Americans to the south. From this perch, he has deployed his illustration skills on titles for Vertigo and Marvel and has also co-written Dale Keown’s Pitt and Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham. 

Praise For…


A surprisingly subtle and sensitive exploration of faith, hero worship, and the way both exist in today’s popular culture — all wrapped up in a mixed-match buddy comedy that also featured one of the most unexpected depictions of God one could imagine.
— The Hollywood Reporter

Mark Russell, Richard Pace and Leonard Kirk deliver another satirical swipe at the commodification of Christianity, but with a poignant message too… A book that’s as much a modern take on the teachings of Christ as it is a satire on the corruption of said teachings by corrupt institutions and individuals.
— COMICON.com

A crystalline parody of superhero origins that subverts the genre with wickedly relevant satire… Every page is chock full of biting quips and emotional nuances for readers to latch on to. Pace’s stunning art – as usual – only serves to magnify the emotional depth of the dialogue.
