Action Lab Puts Misbegotten: Runaway Nun #1 Into Print For Their September 2017 Solicits

Action Lab has started to put Misbegottenan ebook series they started publishing in 2014, into a seiralised print comic, beginning in September. They describe the series as:

Set in a dystopian future, MISBEGOTTEN is a saga that follows the journey of a warrior priest sent to rescue a Jesus-clone from being sacrificed during a mock Passion play.

ISSUE 1: 2097, A.D. In the aftermath of series of asteroid collisions, America has fallen under Church Law: the Statue of Liberty has a cross instead of a torch, and the Holy Infant has replaced the tablets. In the West, tribes of diggers refuse conversion and are chased down by Jesuit crusaders led by Father Elano, the Church's top enforcer. In the East, stuck in mid-Atlantic, looms the Harlequin Island, a floating colony of self-exiled libertarians led by Sir Gottfrey. A maverick genius who lives with his organs outside his body, Gottfrey kills time cloning the past's famous and infamous—the so-called replikas—for his sheer entertainment. But he's about to cross the line: his next show will be a highly authentic Easter Pageant, starring the J-Clone, a Jesus look-alike cloned from a drop of blood off a holy relic. Enters Double-M, a replika of Marilyn Monroe (and J-Clone's girlfriend!) who runs away from Harlequin Island and alerts the Church about the upcoming show.

Witha  slightly reduced solicit for the print version.MISBEGOTTEN RUNAWAY NUN #1

In a post-apocalyptic world gone medieval, the Church sends their top monk warrior to infiltrate a renegade scientist's enclave and kidnap the J-Clone, the Lord's vat-born twin. Saving the holy clone from the cross forces, the monk must confront the truth of his own (very immaculate) birth. Clones of Marilyn Monroe, Hitler, Gandhi and Jesus… oh my! Misbegotten is cyber-punk religion gone mad!
