Coming Soon: Webcomics Monday

Starting next Monday, I’m planning a new weekly series for Pop Culture Christ called Webcomics Monday. Over the last few months I’ve been storing up a whole bunch of webcomics that deal with Christian and/or religious themes. Each Monday, I’ll be linking to one of these comics and briefly discussing them. So far, I’ve got enough to last me a few months at least, but I’d be very keen for people to link me to more. I don’t care how old they are, as long as they’re accessible on the net.

To get you into the mood, I thought I’d give you an idea of what webcomics I’m reading on a regular basis. Bonus points if you can link me to a comic with Christian themes that isn’t on this list!

Wonderella and The Second Coming of Christ

I’m a big fan of the webcomic The Non-Adventures of Wonderella. I’ve linked to the comic before and I’m sure I will link to it again. The main character, Wonderella, has a connection to the gods of myth, which often brings religious themes into the comic. On top of that, the author isn’t afraid to lampoon traditions that people have that they haven’t properly thought through. That’s not to say that the traditions are bad, just that people take them for granted.

Recently, Justin Pierce (the comic’s author) posted a 3 part comic depicting the second coming of Jesus. It’s well worth checking out and discussing. You can find it here, here, and here.

Jesus would totally win in a rap battle.

Now, say that some representatives of organised religion got upset and wanted them to stop. What would happen next? Ctrl+Alt+Del has been there, done that.

Is Star Trek a Religion?

TheWeddingIn the Australian census we have every 7 years, more and more people register their faith as “Jedi”. But I haven’t heard of anyone worshipping at the altar of Shatner.
