Adult Swim Introduces New Live-Action Comedy Series BLACK JESUS at Comic-Con

Saturday was a blast with signings at the Comic-Con Adult Swim booth featuring show creators and voice talent from The Venture Bros., Robot Chicken and Rick and Morty.

The series, which finds Jesus living in present day Compton, CA on a daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers, premieres Thursday, August 7th at 11:00 p.m. ET / PT on Adult Swim.

Last, but not least, Adult Swim ended their 2014 Comic-Con with a panel discussion from creators of animated originals Superjail!, King Star King and Mr. Pickles.
