Upcoming Comics - The Bible by Mayer&Co

I should get around to posting about stuff that actually came out that I've read someday. There's some good stuff. Until then...

Here's something I wasn't expecting. A hardcover reprint of the 1975 book of Old Testament stories by Sheldon Mayer, Nester Redondo and Joe Kubert, published by DC in their old tabloid format. I wonder if someone saw the sales on Robert Crumb's GENESIS and figured if they could get even a fraction of that it would be worthwhile. Anyway, enjoyable comic, definitely worth a look.  Wonder if we'll ever see the material prepared for unpublished follow-up volumes.  Mayer and Redondo did at least some work on a New Testament book.  And despite the cover, the published book didn't get as far as Moses, although I don't know if any work was done on continuing the Old Testament story.
