Evan Dahm ¹ The Harrowing of Hell KINDLE

Deeply personal and full of profound ambiguity ― AV CLUB “Grapples with the revolutionary humility of Christ’s message” ― PUBLISHERS WEEKLY“Jesus of Nazarethart thou come to destroy us?” Over the thousands of years since Christ’s Crucifixion the original gospels detailing his life and death have been edited sanded down and molded into the tale millions of people know by heart today But what if that first fevered dreamlike writing about this moment of pro You know those long fraught instrumental numbers at the end of Godspell and Jesus Christ Superstar? Evan Dahm's The Harrowing of Hell is the graphic novel version of what those tracks imply but can't show Christ's descent into hell and return to ressurectionChallenging and deeply thoughtful Distinctive look very appropriate to the emotional weight of the story

DOC Ê The Harrowing of Hell ¹ Evan Dahm

The Harrowing of HellFound historical upheaval were to be resurrected itself brought back to life in a haunting fable for our modern age? In THE HARROWING OF HELL Evan Dahm draws upon a wide array of texts both ancient and modern religious and historical to create a brand new window into the life and death of Christ a vision of a dying man’s revolutionary drive and fervent belief in humanity’s salvation from all manner of jailers Discarding the heroic demon smiting Christ that has taken The art style and story are very evocative It’s a great look at a interesting piece of Christian mythology that has mostly only been inferred and never expanded upon Highly recommended and I look forward to from this creator and publisher
