Fell TPB, Volume02, the Italian edition

Just got a fancy Italian version of collected Fell in the mail. It has the basic same cover as the Anglo TPB, but curiously, this "volume" only collects the last 4 issues, and then includes a bunch of backmatter from Warren and myself, something the regular TPB doesn't have. ( I can't tell you what it's al about since it's in Italian obviously ). I just don't remember the first volume, collecting issues 1 through 4. So either I am going senile in my old age ( which is highly probable as I descend to grumpy old man status ) or I've yet to actually see the first volume or even confirm that it exists, and I definitely wonder what the cover would look like...or maybe they just wanted the last 4 issues, who knows.


Either way, foreign lang editions are wonderful. There should be a full French one out soon or already, since I remember signing my soul away on that one.

Thanks for dropping by Bibby.

Spirituality eh? Well, I dread to think how that reflects on what I post here.

As to your theory, unfortunately, there's no proof Jesus existed in any historical context as the character portrayed in popular mythology or fiction...and even if he did, he stole most of his ideas from far eastern Buddhism, since delegations from India to the Roman/mediterranean world are known to have occured, thanks to Alexander geting Hellenic culture and links out that far ( Indo-Bactrian kingdoms etc etc where greeks actually adopted the philosophies )

But the short answer is no, since Jesus, as superstitious people know the character, did not and does not exist.

Well more like he's a rip off of a whole bunch of other people that claimed to be the messiah. I forget what ones but if you watch Religulous Bill Maher lists three I think. Life of Brian is a more accurate as to what was going on when Jebus supposedly lived. There were tons of people claiming to be the son of god.
