On a statement on their official site, JesusIsland.com, the creators wrote: “The over-the-top objectification of women in comics is hardly a new issue, but every now and then an example comes along that crystallizes the problem perfectly. It hardly seems right that female characters are the only ones who get this treatment, so in the sake of fairness, we put our resident beefcake, Mortimer Glum, on display. Enjoy!”
