Atheists Battle Supernatural Villains in New Comic Miniseries

Atheists Battle Supernatural Villains in New Comic Miniseriesfrom charlotteobserver.com: Justin Aclin, 33, is the co-creator of a new comic miniseries from Dark Horse Comics called “S.H.O.O.T. First.” “S.H.O.O.T. First” stands for “Secular Humanist Occult Obliteration Taskforce,” and the series involves a band of atheists who fight evil supernatural monsters that prey on human faith. Aclin, once a religious Jew, now identifies as an atheist, and the three-year process of writing the comic helped him make the journey. The third of the comic’s four issues appeared in comic shops last month, and the story will continue in the anthology “Dark Horse Presents” in 2014.
