COMICS
Here’s to good intentions. DC Comics has announced that the comic book giant will be releasing a new parody series based on Jesus Christ through the companies DC Vertigo line. The adult graphic novel was written by Mark Russell with artwork created by Richard Pace and will arrive on store shelves on March 6, 2019.

A far cry from earlier religious comics from Spire in the 1970's, this new one will be tried out as a limited series but could becoming a regular one if it becomes popular. Second Coming is described by DC as follows:

“Witness the return of Jesus Christ, as He is sent on a most holy mission by God to learn what it takes to be the true messiah of mankind by becoming roommates with the world’s favorite savior: the all-powerful super hero Sun-Man, the Last Son of Krispex! But when Christ returns to Earth, he’s shocked to discover what has become of his gospel—and now, he aims to set the record straight.”

At this point, it’s hard to know if Russell, who has written a …

Meet the Guy Who Wrote My Theme Song

Have you ever wished that you had your own theme song? You know, like when you’re walking down the street like Mary Tyler Moore and you throw your hat up in the air for no good reason. Or like Will Smith singing his own theme about the Prince of Bel-Air? Well, prepare to be impressed as Writer of Pop now has his own. Take a listen!



So, you might wonder how much one would one pay for such a masterpiece. Five bucks. It’s true. By visiting Fiverr.com, I was able to hook up with a man of mystery who goes by the name of “OldGreg,”who is actually only 24. OldGreg has only been writing music with Fiverr since August but has generated about 50 songs, including this gem. OldGreg’s schick is that he he’ll write a song about anything you want if you give him a week and some background info. This is for a 15 second song. If you want a 60 second song, you’ll need to throw in $10 more. A two minute song runs for $25. If you really like the song, he’ll throw in the lyrics and the chords for free, so you can sing it yourself for family and friends.

"OldGreg" wrote my theme song.
OldGreg is a writer, musician and software designer. He is originally from London, England, but he has what he likes to call the “traveling bug.” “I move around so much I don’t know where to say I live,” he tells me in our correspondence. He uses what money he makes off Fiverr to fund his trips. “I love doing it and hope to increase the number of gigs I bring in by gyrating like Miley Cyrus on a papyrus because that's what the people need.” The mystery man apparently thinks that we Americans are all in awe of Cyrus. I hate to tell him otherwise.

In addition to writing songs for people he doesn’t know, OldGreg “does a plethora of things to stay afloat” he tells me including street performing, writing, stealing the odd grape while at the supermarket (“It's socially acceptable”) and teaching guitar and ukulele.
