SON O' GOD Chapter Three
Continued from here...

The
first Son O' God comic ended in a cliffhanger, when the devil himself confronts Son O’ God on the steps of St. Patrick’s SON-O-GOD(which has a large “Bingo Tonite” banner hanging from its spires) and screams, “Give up you little Kike! You are powerless to stop the grip of my Jesuit logic!”

The LAST installment in National Lampoon magazine's controversial Son O' God saga was published in 1974.

The last shall be first and the first shall be last in this "Special Origin Issue," pictured below, by Sean Kelly and Neal Adams.

SON-O-GODLast Chapter, Final Verse

Son O' God's final appearance came in 1976, when National Lampoon published their special "Diamond Jubilee Issue," featuring the one-page Son O' God epilogue shown below.

While the original series was a comic superhero satire, this epilogLENNYue portrays Son O' God performing a cornball nightclub act. The art is signed by Neal Adams, but I'm not certain who wrote the text -- probably Sean Kelly.

The design of the page, and to some degree the text as well, are both a parody of the movie poster for "Lenny," starring Dustin Hoffman as controversial stand-up comedian Lenny Bruce. (Poster shown left.)

Hope you enjoyed our look at Son O' God, reader. Controversial indeed, offensive to some, hilarious to others -- but no matter what one thinks of the stories, I think we can all agree that with Neal Adams doing the penciling, inking and coloring, the artwork in this series, at least, is definitely worthy of praise in the highest! HAPPY EASTER!
