Believing in 'The Atheist'

I pre-ordered The Atheist #1, and based on Phil Hester's interview at Comic Book Resources, I'm glad I did:
The Atheist's first adventure takes place when he's called in to investigate the dead possessing the bodies of young people for one simple reason -- they're sick of being dead, and they want to return to this planet to party a little more.

"Instead of demons, these are normal people sick of the afterlife -- so they forcibly possess people. Instead of eating brains, they party. They basically hijack young people and party them to death," Hester explains.
