    Why not religious manga? Classic good versus evil...

    For epic stories of good verses evil, why not religious manga? I know that some people get hot when you talk religion or politics. But you could do a story in a respectful way. It makes for a good story. Something different. No one has done this. So I did.

    A story about good verses evil, starting with Satan tempting Jesus in a desert, in the holy city, and on a mountain. See poetic, symbolic, and realistic art. Jesus and Satan duel, manga/comic book style. This is a work in progress and I would like some feedback, as well as your answers to the question.

    SEE PARTS 1, 2, AND 3:
    Tempt The Messiah:




    ***If you are interested in the art process, you can access a link from the bottom of part 3 that talks about that.

    Why not Hellsing? Decades of violent Catholic vs. Protestant incidents.

    As a matter of fact, many anime and manga portray religious conflict. Just not on the foreground or in an obscenely obvious way.

    Yes, religious mangas DO make a good story but must be planned properly without offending the religion. It also depends which country you're from, e.g If you offended Islam accidentally in countries like Malaysia, even if the government can't do anything to you, the people will.

    I wonder if Neon Genesis Evangelion counts a a "religious" manga. I keep talking about it so much, its insane. Also, there is a good chance that D. Gray Man is a religious manga as well.

    Well, there are out there some religious manga... it is not abvious though... Hmmmm... hellsing, even Bleach has some religious point of views. Even though it is nice that you have think about a direct religious manga, that is awesome I applaude you for that.
