Marvel Gets Super Jelly when OSSM Comics One-Ups Them on Diversity

OSSM goes religion/black/female, Marvel goes blackmail.

Much attention has been brought to Marvel’s latest march for diversity in their bread-and-butter characters. Black Captain America. Lady Thor. But what Marvel didn’t expect was someone to school them at Diversity University. OSSM Comics has something Marvel didn’t have the guts to write in to their universe; the ultimate weapon in a diversity war; one that touches race, gender, and religion in its 3-part series: Monomyth
 
One Marvel employee from their Human Resources department learned of this and immediate forcefully assaulted his laptop's keyboard  to type the following e-mail to OSSM:
 
“For the love of all that is corporate and dressed well, please remove your latest series, Monomyth. Let’s be honest. Your character, Lucifer was just written as a black woman just to say that you could trump us. Diversity is well respected here, but...let’s not get crazy. We will retaliate, and do something even crazier...Like probably a Jewish Tony Stark or something. I can’t think of anything yet. But you..you...you better stop, or we'll...tickle you or something."
 
SHOCKING, I know. I’m shocked myself. You’ll be even more shocked when you read issue two of Monomyth because there’s all kinds of crazy action, great art, massive battles, plus it does have a family aspect, leaving the story balanced. The story centers around Enoch, who is the chosen one. The archangel Michael wants to tear a path through anyone in his way, so that he can get to Enoch. Lucifer tries to protect, but you know how epic angel battles go. But it’s 39 pages, son. Thirty nine. Some of it is allowed for the kickass splashes, of course. 
 
Speaking of which, the art ranges from very good to fantastic in at least one splash of Monomyth #2 that I found myself appreciating for a minute or so, it was just full of color and this 3 headed beast looked real, and frightening as hell, as it’s being ridden by Michael, the archangel who went to the dark side. Obviously, it’s a reversal on the Christian story, but in more detail, and way...way cooler. The art is done by Eric Ninaltowski, but the colors are from various artists, which is apparent, but not distracting enough to be a bother.
 
Siike Donnelly is the creator and writer, who is no stranger to coverage on The Outhouse, as his story is one of the coolest stories out there. Donnelly really made issue 2 strong. Issue 1 was fun, but issue 2 had me wanting to dig deeper. I look forward to see what happens next for the series. If you like action, epics, and emotional driven stories, you’ll like Monomyth. 
 
I've included some preview pages, which have no dialogue, but you can see how much you like the art.
