The Book of Genesis Illustrated by R. Crumb

book-genesis_crumb

The Book of Genesis Illustrated by R. Crumb Genesis is the source for many illustrated books. Noah’s Ark is probably the most popular story in toddler books. Other stories are less kid friendly (like Noah’s drunken nakedness) and even less graphic friendly (like the genealogies). This book depicts the entire fifty chapters and aims at [Read More...]

Book Review: Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge

I was not sure how she could possibly match it, especially with a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood which is a fairy tale I’ve never cared for much. I am [Read More...]

book-messiah_vol1

Messiah: Origin adapted and edited by Matt Dorff, translations by Mark Arey, art by Kai Carpenter A lot of superhero franchise reboots suffer from the same problem. The adapters don’t appreciate the source material from which they craft a “new take on” or a “more relevant version of” someone like Superman, who has been ill-served [Read More...]

McCammon’s Acknowledgements

For a while on my book wish list sat one called Swan Song by Robert R. McCammon. It finally landed on my actively reading list.

Book Review – Redeemed by Grace

There is one genre that I would like to see grow and then have no need for at all. That is the conversion testimony of those who were once pro-abortion and were involved in the business of providing abortions.
