Rich Furman, of Cat-Tharsis and watercolorist Morgan MacBain are pleased to announce the debut of their graphic novel project, The Last Days of Yeshua HaNozri: A Tale of Appeasement. The webcomic is a passion story that endeavors to explore the political dynamics that culminated in the crucifixion of Jesus. It was conceived as a response to Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ,” but will have additional dimensions as well.
Furman is writing and lettering the project and MacBain is doing the artwork (the medium is ink and watercolor with computer lettering.) A new page will be published every two weeks.
This is a great idea, although very controversial, as it touches matters considered as untouchable dogmas by many.
As I type this, I only see one page, but I find very interesting how the comic puts in relief the political interests of Pilatus and Rome. Will this comic take a glimpse at the political meaning of the appearance of a “messiah” on the zone? Will the comic mention the earlier revolts of Israelis against the Roman occupation? After reading this first page I feel enthusiast about this project and encourage the creators to further and finish this comic.
Should you need further graphical reference, I would be pleased to give you a few clues about where to find accurate information about uniformology and life on the early Imperial Rome. 🙂
