This has got to be one of the most bizarre one-shot's I've ever read. The story kind of goes like this: man meets pretty girl, man kidnaps the pretty girl and takes her to his rinky-dink fishing boat, man is thwarted by the devil himself and a Mini Cooper. Seriously?
I'm all for religious parodies, but this goes so far beyond ridiculous it's no longer funny. First of all, there's not a likable character in this thing. The main character, Vulcan, is so vile that I don't know who could possibly think he was funny (unless attempted rape is hilarious to you). Nazareth I assume is
supposed to be innocent and pure, but comes off as kind of bland, especially since she doesn't have a whole lot to do other than to be kidnapped by various people. The demon (who at first describes himself as Lucifer, and then puts that into question by saying he wants to resurrect him), seems to do nothing but summon up really random junk (cars,vending machines, airplanes, etc.) to try and crush people with.
It's only 68 pages long, and its not extremely painful; just extremely silly. The art isn't bad, but the story and the characters were just too out there to make this enjoyable for me.
