Russell and Wheeler Take On the Bible in 'Apocrypha Now'
Writer Mark Russell and cartoonist Shannon Wheeler hope to bring readers the very best Bible stories that didn't make it into the Bible (or perhaps just lost something in translation) in their informative but disrespectful adaptation Apocrypha Now, the follow up to their previous Biblical adaptation, God is Disappointed in You. Published by Top Shelf, the book features Russell's prose accompanied by Wheeler's New Yorker-esque cartoons, and we have an exclusive preview of their take on the destruction of Sodom.
Convergence Week 4: Pre-Crisis Miniseries
A more appropriate name for DC Comics' Convergence event, at least the miniseries that will accompany the main series for two months next spring, may be "Nostalgia Trip." DC has been rolling out titles and creative teams for the 40 planned series week by week. The first batch focused on the publisher's pre-New 52 continuity. The second focused on the 1990s (including WildStorm), and the third seemed to center on the 1980s. The fourth and final group of miniseries, which DC announced Tuesday, covers a much wider time period: All of DC's pre-Crisis On Infinite Earths continuity. And there's another twist: They all take place on defined and listed alternate Earths which existed before the company's last line-wide reboot in the 1980s.
