Testament Volume Three

The third of what will ultimately be a four-volume set is being released this week. Testament Vol. 3: Babel.

I’m really proud of this one. I think the series is truly hitting its stride now that everyone understands who the “gods” are and why they can’t enter into the main panels of action. The story of a counterculture attempting to break a techno-fascist tyranny waged through centralized currency now moves front and center. Plus there’s another section of extensive notes, explaining the Bible and history on which some of my interpretations are based.

There’s a bunch of great Testament interviews online now, too:

This is probably the most recent, with Adam Elenbaas on Reality Sandwich.

Here’s the BoingBoing podcast interview.

Here’s the UndressMeRobot Interview.

And here’s one on Suicide Girls.

If you haven’t checked out this series, yet please do give it a try. I don’t expect to be working with Bible mythology again for a long time, and this is definitely the easiest way to get what it is I’ve been trying to point out about these stories. If you want to download the first issue for free, go over to the Vertigo website.
