BOOK OF GENESIS
book of genesis
W. W. Norton & Company 2009
Book of Genesis is illustrated by American cartoonist Robert Crumb, that purports to be a faithful, literal illustration of the Book of Genesis. It reached #1 the New York Times graphic novel bestseller list and on the Christian books list at Amazon.com.
Great work, makes the Bible even more inscrutable in parts. Why did the good guys in Sodom offer their daughters to “do whatever you want” while saving the “divine” men whom the denizens of Sodom wanted to sodomize? My main complaint is Crumb makes everything look grubby and crass, there are no graceful or lovely figures here. Even the angels looks like skid-row bums. But an admirable work.
