Product Overview

Envisioning the first book of the Bible, R. Crumb retells the story of Genesis in an honest and moving way. Originally thinking that he would do a takeoff of Adam and Eve, Crumb became so fascinated by the Bible's language that he decided instead to do a literal interpretation assembled primarily from the translations of Robert Alter and the King James version.
Now readers of every persuasion - Crumb fans, comic book lovers, and believers - can gain new insights from these harrowing, tragic, and even juicy stories. Crumb's Book of Genesis reintroduces us to the bountiful tree-lined garden of Adam and Eve, the massive ark of Noah with beasts of every kind, the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed by brimstone and fire that rained from the heavens, and the Egypt of the Pharaoh, where Joseph's enbalmed body is carried in a coffin, in a scene as elegiac as any in Genesis. Using clues from the text and peeling away the theological and scholarly interpretations that have often obscured the Bible's most dramatic stories, Crumb fleshes out a parade of Biblical originals.
