PUNK ROCK JESUS!!!
AGE SUGGESTION: 17+

Synopsis from dcuniverseinfinite.com: J2, the TV series starring a clone of Jesus Christ, causes chaos across a near-future United States! Religious zealots either love or hate the show, angry politicians worry about its influence on the nation, and members of the scientific community fear the implications of cloning a human being!
Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:
- What are your thoughts on the concept of creating a clone of Jesus for a reality TV show in “Punk Rock Jesus”? How does it reflect on the intersection of religion, entertainment, and technology?
- The character of Chris Fairling undergoes significant development throughout the story. How did you feel about his journey, both as a clone and as a symbol?
- “Punk Rock Jesus” explores themes of fame, identity, and the power of media. How do these themes resonate with contemporary society, and do you see any parallels in real-world situations?
- The graphic novel delves into the ethical implications of genetic engineering and reality television. Do you think the narrative successfully raises important questions about these topics, or do you feel it takes a specific stance?
- Sean Murphy’s art style in “Punk Rock Jesus” is distinctive and dynamic. How did the visual elements enhance or influence your experience of the story?
