Descripción del producto
"Jacobs marries the majesty of nature with otherworldly magic" -- Jonathan Rotzstain, Visual Arts News "Pixelated robots, ropey organisms, swirling creatures of the cosmos, and even a bundle of intergalactic puppies feature in Jesse's work, and we really cannot get enough of the meteoric illustrations." -- Madeleine Morley, It's Nice That "I've truly never encountered anything like it. It's both grounded and blows your mind at the same time." -- Ollie Ottoman, Ground Control "An art comics creation myth, cosmic, disturbing, and beautifully rendered in ice-blue and contrasting purples, with a style that welds the lovely to the grotesque...By This Shall You Know Him is (further) proof that fantasy in comics need not be hollow, generic, or ingratiating. It can be troubling instead. An inspired comic!" - Author and academic, Charles Hatfield (Alternative Comics, and Hand of Fire: The Comics Art of Jack Kirby University Press of Mississippi, 2005 and 2012) "I went in expecting a psychedelic vision quest, and I came out having experienced a stunning new creation myth. Intricate, upsetting, and fun." - Jeremy Tinder, Boing Boing "Though it's mostly populated by balls of slime, ancient spaghetti-tentacled beasts, and, emotionally bruised cosmic titans, it remains believable and resonant, working through fundamental human tendencies and flaws. A perfect application of color to boot." - Nate Powell, Boing Boing "It was the cosmic, geometrical, swirly, floaty art that initially drew me towards this comic, but it was the story and that drew me in...This is an absolutely unforgettable comic, an instant classic in my book." - Battle Hymns "A key difference between [Jack] Kirby and [Jesse] Jacobs is that Jacobs is willing to make his techno-gods into actual gods--they create the Earth and populate it with animals and humans, just as most of the gods of myth and religion did. Kirby was working in a context of commercial comic books aimed at children. He wasn't in a position to supplant established religions with his own mythology--it might have caused controversy, And controversy might keep the Red Ryder BB gun manufacturer from buying ads in Thor or The Fantastic Four. Jacobs is free to explore religious ideas more directly than Kirby. He can posit Genesis as an art school crit, and no one will be too bothered." -Robert Boyd, The Great God Pan is Dead "The Book of Genesis re-imagined as an art project. Complete with competing Cosmic Entities (each with its own aesthetic preferences) and The Advisor." - Tom Kaczynski, Cartoonist, and Publisher of Uncivilized Books "A great cosmic creation myth using Abrahamic and Vedic traditions as a springboard -- Jesse has allowed plenty of room to move and play within the creation framework." - Nate Powell, Eisner Award winning cartoonist of Swallow Me Whole "By This You Shall Know Him by Jesse Jacobs is instantly visually striking by a relatively new voice in comics that is now emerging as a fully formed talent." -- Peter Birkemoe, Owner, The Beguiling
Reseña del editor
Witness the limitless ambitions of celestial beings as they fiddle and fuss with all sorts of molecular arrangements, creating infinitely detailed patterns and strange new worlds brimming with bizarre life forms. By This Shall You Know Him depicts all manner of beasts running, crawling, and slithering towards death's cold embrace.Ver Descripción del producto

Around these awesome design elements Jacobs has created a story about god-like beings who play with creating life on Earth. It's a fun little story with some very endearing characters and some really s***ty ones that enjoy stomping on cute little puppies. The story is totally fun though it kind of fizzles out in the end, but I can't complain considering all the awesome work in this volume. You don't really read Jacobs for his story but rather to soak in his awesome art.
