Publishers Weekly

Splatterpunk legend Skipp (Long Last Call) and up-and-comer Goodfellow (Ravenous Dusk) produce an outrageous gore fest about a preacher's reckless vow to be resurrected. Cable TV cult leader Jacob Connaway is mid-coitus with a congregant when her boyfriend stabs the preacher to death. As his unhappy widow, Esther, attempts to convince his lovers to testify to Jake's philandering and prevent the Church of Eternal Life from inheriting what Esther thinks should be hers, Jake lurches back to life and goes on a killing rampage, accompanied by demons. To Jake, the chance to take revenge on his backstabbing friends and to conclusively demonstrate that Christianity is a lie feels "an awful lot like heaven"; the ensuing bloodbath will terrify those who expect false prophets to be locked away in hell. (Jan.)
