R. Crumb's Genesis

If you havent had a chance to check out this exhibit at the Hammer Museum, I highly recommend it. Robert Crumb spent the last 4 odd years adapting the book of Genesis, and he does it with surprising accuracy and detail.

From 'Creation' all the way to Josephs burial, all of the events of the book as well as the depicting all of the different successions of relatives throughout the ages.

No rod is spared in this version and some of the brutal and graphic nature of the Bible is clearly represented.
