We already knew that Mary’s Bar (5th Avenue at 22nd Street) was immortalized in the pages of a comic book, but did you know that Cafe Regular (11th Street, between 4th and 5th Avenue) was featured in the same series?
Created by Brooklyn-based Sean Gordon Murphy, Punk Rock Jesus is about the near-future, when the clone of Jesus Christ grows up in front of the entire world – on a reality TV series. You can spot Cafe Regular in a scene from issue 2 (shown above).
Going to New York Comic Con this week? Sean will be there on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so be sure to stop by and share your love for our local coffee shop.
Thanks to Gary at Brooklyn Comics and More for the comic book intel!
