Steeple by John Allison collects issues one through five of his latest comic. It opens with a young vicar on her way to her new assignment when her car bursts into flames. She has to get a ride the rest of the way on the back of a motorcycle, driven by a member of the local Satanic church.
If you believe the vicarage's housekeeper, all the town's ills stem from the rivalry between the Anglican and Satanic churches. Whatever rivalry there is between the two is pretty minor. The problems the town faces are from other sources (some supernatural).
There are sea monsters akin to something you'd find in the Legends of Eerie-on-Sea series by Thomas Taylor. There is an attempted man-made rapture. There is a witch convention. And some other mayhem.
While this book comes to a satisfactory end, Allison's website states it's volume 1. I hope this is the case. In the meantime, the continuation of the comic is online.
