Move over R. Crumb, here’s the Comic Torah
Apropos of Crumb’s recent Genesis adaptation, here’s another attempt to bring the classic old testament tales into the comics medium courtesy of Sharon Rosenzweig and Aaron Freeman. The Comic Torah is a much more interpretive, looser adaptation of those classic Bible stories, with God portrayed as a woman, for instance, and the Land of Milk and Honey becoming an actual character of sorts. You can read a summation of the story here, or start reading the story here.
The creators are trying to self-publish a full-color edition of the work and have initiated a Kickstarter project with the goal of raising $12,000. So check it out and if you like what you see, throw a couple of bucks their way.
