I always thought my six years in an all-boys Catholic school made me fall in love with the Christian myth and iconography, but maybe it’d already been cultivated way before that. Since I was a kid, thanks to Wonder Woman, I was excited to learn about Greek gods and goddesses. And saints, especially the ones whose real story was lost and then became legends, are nothing if not mythical characters.

Saints by Image Comics checks that box for me. It also checked the gay character box (with the reincarnation of Saint Sebastian, who’s the hottest in the group, to represent the gays) and a horror undertone.

From Image Comics:

When a group of misfits discover themselves to be the reincarnations of Catholic saints, they must put aside their differences to battle the fallen angel Michael and his army of doomsday zealots. Critically lauded, this is the comic debut of award-winning playwright Sean Lewis (Kennedy Center Rosa Parks Award; NPR’S This American Life) and graphic artist Benjamin Mackey (of Twin Peaks Tarot Card fame).
