I wish Boom! would appropriately label their Christian comics so I don’t read them by mistake again. In this issue, the previously science-happy Allingham becomes Kirk Cameron. The comic should have ended with her boobs being smaller, as to be more Christian. They could have made her look like Melissa Joan Hart or something.
If all The Unknown‘s mysteries are answered with religious malarky, what’s the point in reading the book. Waid’s not doing anything interesting with it like Ennis or Moore do, he’s just using it as a solution, which is why it ought to be on the Boom! Christian imprint.
Boom!’s always tried to exploit the cultural zeitgeist, but come on… Christian Fundies are so three years ago–remember the Mel Gibson doesn’t believe in gravity bit from “Family Guy”?
Waid completely eighty-sixes the first issue’s ground situation.
I can’t wait for the creationist issue.
