When a group of misfits discover themselves to be the re-incarnations 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 Christopher
Lewis (Kennedy Center Rosa Parks Award; NPR'S This American Life) and graphic artist Benjamin Mackey (of Twin Peaks Tarot Card fame). SAINTS is the wildly funny and challenging story of people questioning what they believe in the midst of fighting for it. Religion, Humor and Heavy Metal combine in this audacious drama for adults. Sean Lewis' plays have been produced the United States and
Europe winning the Kennedy Center's Rosa Parks Award, the Barrymore Award, the
Smith Prize and many more. His work has been published in the NY Times Sunday
Magazine, lauded in the Huffington Post, and heard on NPR'S This American Life.
He is a proud father, husband and Artistic Director of Working Group Theater. He can be found at
Benjamin Mackey is the co-creator and artist of the ongoing series SAINTS
alongside Sean Lewis. While this is Benjamin's first foray into the world of comic books, he has been working as a freelance illustrator for various books,
magazines, and films over the past six years. He lives in Arizona and enjoys a damn fine cup of coffee.

Christianity from different angles A group of Saints, reincarnated in our times, find themselves on a quest while the followers of Michael are out to prevent them. Recruiting along the way, they eventually end up in Babylon for the battle with Michael and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. With simplistic line drawings, this comic collection shows us conflicts within Christianity as fanatics will do anything to maintain their position/beliefs. This was not really my sort of comic so I did not enjoy as much as others might.
