    No way am I giving up drinking beer and eating pork. Never mind banging my head on the floor like a demented woodpecker…

  2. Michael Roberts says:

    I was wondering just what ‘substance’ the barmaid had dispensed to Moses in that tiny little glass. And then absented herself …

  3. OtterBe says:

    If you click on ‘jihad’ below the comic, you can compare J&Marvair v1 with current iteration. In this case, I kinda prefer Jesus’s old incredulous face.

  4. Son of Glenner says:

    Typo in panel 2: “TE” should be “THE”

  5. Bruce Vereshagen says:

    Michael Roberts: I am guessing that anyone who would willi gly wander around the Sinai for decades likely drinks mescal.

  6. Succubus ov Satan says:

    Is panel 4
    Mo angry
    Mo with a sudden hangover
    Or Mo’s brain launching

  7. Laripu says:

    Here are some details I noticed in both the original and this one:
    – Moses has chest hair.
    – Moses’ staff makes it look like Mo has a tail. (Really, I think Mo should have a tail.)

    Author, what color are Moses’ hair and beard meant to be? Since we see these in gray scale, I can’t tell. Blond? Ginger? Gray? And do the curtains match the rug?

  8. M27Holts says:

    What is strange is that the two fictional characters can be freely depicted but the one solid historical sap is under ridiculous man-made restrictions governing his depiction…

  9. Donn says:

    Moses’ hair/beard color? I see red.

  10. Troubleshooter says:

    Meanwhile, Jesus said, “I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father, but by Me.” Now, does Jesus get the nod for claiming exclusivity FIRST, or does Mo get it by trying to one-up Jesus later?

    Personally, I think they’re both full of meadow muffins, but it’d be interesting to hear their thoughts.

  11. M27Holts says:

    Well the writer of the new testament said he did? Fictional nonsense the lot of it…

  12. Donn says:

    I would have to say Mo. The Abrahamic god is perennially dissatisfied with his subjects, and it’s easy to picture him saying,

    “OK Gabriel, I tried begetting an earthly representative, and I don’t think that’s going to work a second time, but my people still need to shape up, so let’s go back to the prophet model. You go talk to Mo. You can make some promises, just don’t get carried away.”
