Comics Are My Religion: Horror & Sci-Fi Are My Religion, Too (With John W. Morehead)

Welcome to Comics Are My Religion, a look at theology through the lens of comic books. There are some basic ground rules about engaging in respectful dialog about religion in this column.

The Comics Are My Religion Podcast returns this month, with a great conversation with John W. Morehead. Who’s he, you ask? First, he’s awesome.
