Reviews

"Starred Review. Crumb's vivid visual characterizations of the myriad characters, pious and wicked, make the most striking impression. His distinctive, highly rendered drawing style imparts a physicality that few other illustrated versions of this often retold chronicle have possessed. The centenarian elders show every one of their years, and the women, from Eve to Rachel, are as solidly sensual as any others Crumb has so famously drawn." -- Booklist "To say this book is a remarkable volume or even a landmark volume in comic art is somewhat of an understatement... stands on its own as one of this century's most ambitious artistic adaptations of the West's oldest continuously told story." -- Paul Buhle - The Jewish Daily Forward "It's a cartoonist's equivalent of the Sistine Chapel. It's awesome. Crumb has done a real artist's turn here-he's challenged himself and defied all expectation. ... I've read Genesis before. But never have I found it so compelling. By placing it squarely in the Middle East-and populating it with distinctively Semitic-looking people-Crumb makes it come alive brilliantly." -- Susan Jane Gilman - Morning Edition, NPR "[A] beautifully drawn and relentlessly faithful rendition of the first 50 chapters of the Bible by an apostle of the 1960s and sometimes profane progenitor of underground comics. Crumb has produced what could be the ultimate graphic novel." -- David Colton - USA Today
