Charles Crumb has published a comic book version of Genesis and seems to be working toward publishing the entire Bible in this format. It is notable because, unlike other products that have been out for some time, this is an adult publication that includes the entire text of Genesis with a drawn frame for each phrase or verse where the action changes. This is serious comic book art, not those little 8-page handout versions that some SS and VBS publishers provide.
"R. Crumb," as he signs his work, is the last person one would think of to initiate this project. He has a long history of producing cynical, profane and even X-rated comics for Mad magazine, etc. He is an institution of sorts in popular culture. He is an agnostic, not a believer, and the reviewer in The New York Times Book Reviewnoted some ways in which this may have influenced his treatment of Genesis. The text follows the King James Version, but relies more heavily on the English translation of Genesis done by Robert Alter.
What does this mean?
There is good and bad news for Jesus followers. On the one hand, the Bible is becoming available in more and more genre's of popular culture, including those more accessible to some of the segments least connected with conventional means of conveying the gospel, such as the church and Christian broadcasting and publishing. (You will not find R. Crumb's version of Genesis for sale in most Christian bookstores.) On the other hand, the Bible is open to manipulation by producers who are not "people of the book" and will use it for their own purposes. The precedent has been set by Americans' long insistence on the primacy of the King James Version. It is a cultural icon as well as word from God.
