While posting Lady Gaga’s new music video for the single “Born This Way” it occurred to me that the Creation Myth narrative intro combined with images from the video would make for a great comic book. So, I spent the next couple hours creating a graphic novelization!
And just in case you missed my previous post or have an aversion to reading comic books I will include the video as well as the text from her narrative intro at the bottom of this post.
(If you’re another site looking to yoink these images please show us a little love and just take one page and add a link – thanks!)
This is the manifesto of Mother Monster.
On Goat, a government-owned alien territory in space, a birth of magnificent and magical proportions took place.
But the birth was not finite. It was infinite. As the womb slumbered and the mitosis of the future began, it was perceived that this infamous moment in life is not temporal, it is eternal.
And thus began the beginning of the new race, a race within the race of humanity. A race which bears no prejudice, no judgment, but boundless freedom.
But on that same day as the eternal mother hovered in the multiverse another more terrifying birth took place: the birth of evil.
And as she herself split into two, rotating in agony between two ultimate forces, the pendulum of choice began its dance.
It seems easy you imagine to gravitate instantly and unwaveringly towards good.
But she wondered, “How can I protect something so perfect without evil?”
