Blackguard #1 : Religious Crazies

Okay, I forgot to mention some things.

First of all, the deadline for contributions for Blackguard #1 is 31 August 2008, which is coming up pretty fast, I'll admit. But you can do it, now that Big Brother has been cancelled. Haw! ... The theme is 'Religious Crazies' - we all, surely, have our own favourite stories about individuals and groups who take their religious beliefs to a noteworthy degree. One of mine, for example, is the Aum Shinrikyo cult of Japan, who released sarin gas on the Tokyo subway. There's also those crazy Taliban dudes (who enjoy hanging women up from cranes in soccer fields), along with the good ol' 'God Hates Fags' organisation in the USA (Louis Theroux made an excellent doco on them, by the way). There's many more, and no doubt you have your own favourite. Well, it's time to pay tribute to these jackasses in comics form! That's your mission now, y'hear?

Format will be A5, that is 20cm x 14cm (or 10 and a half by 7 and a half inches for our Imperial pals).

Send good quality photocopies to:

Oh, how could I forget about that old closet case Fred Phelps and his church of God Hates Fags?! I love how obsessed he is with gay sex; even the way he talks about a sinner being condemned to Hell is set in thinly veiled homoerotic terms: "Heath Ledger has died and has SPLIT HELL WIDE OPEN!" I really hope someone does a comic about him. That doc really is great, too.

Hello sir! The lovely sersugg is pimping you out for friends, so I've added you! (hope this is ok!) ...
I'm not an artist, so I'm no use to you that way, but I'm across the ditch in New Zealand, so I'm sure you can make fun of the All Blacks, or something ... ;)

Thanks! And as for those All Blacks, aren't they funny looking!

Are you going to be doing a personal piece about your own experiences? I'd really like to hear the story of this born-again thing. I have so many questions....

Like: Are you now considered unborn? Stillborn? Dead?

What sort of experience makes you totally change your core values 180 degrees? And then what is the experience that makes you change them all the way back again? I'm in the dark about this. This "religious crazies" comic would be a perfect chance for you to shed some light.

As explained in the first post, the last time I saw my twin brother Stratu, there was blood coming out of his head and he wasn't moving. I got the hell out of there.
Good luck getting an explanation from him.
As for me, I'll probably be doing a strip on Shoko Asahara and his Aum Shinrikyo pals.

They sure do. And it's great to have you back on board, man. It's gonna be fun!
