The lead character of “Hallelujah” was originally born into slavery, Woods said. His abilities make him immortal, but also lead those he has healed to worship him.
“He has a crisis of faith that impacts him in a negative way,” Woods said, noting that his aim is “testing the limits” of superhero fiction with this title.
Woods is an adjunct professor at Rose State College in Midwest City and at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond. Woods also serves as the Comic and Editorial Cartoon Editor at Arcadia Magazine. He said he decided to take the plunge on his own company after talking to cartoonist Art Baltazar, who has worked on DC's “Tiny Titans,” among others.
“He said, ‘Don't wait to get somewhere to do it, just do it,'” Woods recalled.
After lots of initial research, Woods started the process of forming New Myth.
“I focused on the writing and getting a whole world developed,” he said.
