Testament: “Pick of the Month”

Comic Buyer’s Guide has just dubbed Testament issues #1-#2 their “Pick of the Month” with a generous 4-star review by S.A. Bennett.

From the review:

“…it’s clear novelest Douglas Rushkoff has created the most assured and original project to emerge from Vertigo since Sandman. It’s nothing short of amazing that something this innovative and good has (so far) mostly slid under the radar of critical appreciation. But readers should be forewarned: This is rich in sex, violence, and political and religious commentary sure to make at least some unhappy.”

Issue 5 is hitting the shelves of the comic store next week, and a trade paperback collection of the first five issues is due in July. Issue 6 goes back to “Creation,” giving new readers a good starting place to orient to the whole series. Like I’ve said before, this has been one of the most rewarding projects I’ve had the pleasure of working on, and I have you to thank for selling out the last couple of issues and keeping this series alive and well for a good time to come.
