Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In a contemporary city occupied by self-designated "liberators" (invaders), John the Baptist is a homeless vagrant scrounging from trashcans when he "gets the call" by pay phone. Jesus is on a high-rise construction project manhandling two-by-fours with a circular saw and hears of John's baptisms on the radio. After John's dunking and then literal abduction by the Holy-Spirit-as-dove, Jesus shaves his head, dons a robe—and a stretch limo pulls up. "Simply perfect," croons the Devil. "Come with me now, and I'll drop all my other clients." In blocky, whimsical black-and-white art, the plot follows the original Markwith a brain-bending blend of traditional and radical imagery. Not all imagery will work for any one reader, but Ross has certainly shaken up the establishment picture as his superhero had done for his own first-century establishment. Ross was looking to recapture the "surprise, awe, and sheer weirdness" of the Gospels, and the result is engaging, disturbing, and an excellent subject for discussion groups. For teens up. Highly recommended for all libraries.
