Overview

The Judas Coin by Walt Simonson

This centuries-spanning original graphic novel from legendary writer/artist Walter Simonson cleverly ties the Biblical story of Judas to the DC Universe. Simonson shows how one of the silver coins Judas was paid to betray Jesus has had an impact on the DC Universe, with chapters starring The Golden Gladiator (70 A.D.), The Viking Prince (900 A.D.), Captain Fear (1740) and Bat Lash (1880). The centerpiece of the book is an epic battle between Batman and Two-Face. The story blasts into the future as well, with a final chapter set in the year 2070.

a great read, a wonderful story, wonderous artwork by Walt Simonson, i have liked his art sense the Manhunter series of stories in Detective comics in the 1970s, and then in Thor in the 1980s. this story could be expanded into a movie that spans history from Jesus to the future, and a Batman chapter too. everyone at work (a comic book & used book store) wants to borrow this one. this was a gift from my sister for my birthday and i got 3 Batman books out of this gift...thank you very much.
