A Graphic Cosmogony (Hardcover) by Various
Drawn from the mythology of myriad cultures and the ever creative minds of the artists within we are taken from the fog of Niflhelm to the frescoes of Florence in a worldwide collaboration of yarn-spinning talent.-The Biblical creation myth proposes that God created the world in seven days or six plus one day off to chill out so in that spirit the two-dozen cartoonist-shamans corralled into this compendium were given just seven pages to devise their own version of how we all got here. . . . Entire world faiths have been built on equally unlikely accounts. Perhaps if enough readers of this volume start believing in certain stories they might cause a spate of new religions to spring up based upon them. Pull up a rock and gather round the flickering fire--the universe is about to be born again.---From the introduction by freelance journalist curator and lecturer Paul Gravett co-author of Graphic Novels: Stories to Change Your Life (Laurence King Publishing 2005)Features contributions from artists such as Stuart Kolakovic Ben Newman Mike Bertino Brecht Vandenbroucke and Luke Pearson.
