Critically acclaimed, Punk Rock Jesus won the IGN Award for Best Comic Mini-Series of 2012.[1]


In 2019 an entertainment company named OPHIS (Greek for serpent) starts whats known as the "J2 Project", a plan to resurrect Jesus Christ. A clone of Jesus Christ is made with DNA from the Shroud of Turin. The young jesus is raised on an island with his entire life dictated and televised and viewed by nearly the entire world. Faced with these stresses the young Jesus ultimately becomes a rebellious punk rocker. Religious zealots either love or hate the show and politicians begin to fret over potential influences on the nation. The scientific community fears the implications of the cloning itself.[2]
