MBP’s second installment of the Revelations series pairs Michael Caines with the Book of Revelation. Stunningly imagined and masterfully executed artwork populates this graphic story of end times with cute dogs, lions with snake tongues and beasts morphed from contemporary political figures like Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, and Kim Jong Il.
Sound far-fetched? It shouldn’t writes Janette Platana in the book’s foreword: “If your understanding is that John, like Moses, was just another of Yahweh’s divine dictation assistants, taking down the ravings of a vengeful, tribal, warrior sky-god, then you must accept that Michael Caines’s illustrations are as holy as anything else: a talking bush that lights up but doesn’t burn, God’s backside as he moons Moses, the destruction of Sodom blamed forever on homo sex, and never on the casual offer by Lot of his daughters to the rapine crowd as surrogate victims, seven heads on the body of a leopard, a standard poodle whose gaze could turn a guy’s wife into a pillar of salt – then onward Christian soldiers.”
