Big Book of Martyrs SC

BIG BOOK OF MARTYRS SC - B&W (John Wagner/various) The critically acclaimed series takes a more-reverent-than-usual turn as a host of talented artists, including Joe Sacco, Rick Geary, David Lloyd, Sherri Flenniken, Rafael Kayanan, and Colleen Doran adapt the lives (and deaths) of famous and fascinating believers, such as Jesus, St. George, Joan of Arc, Thomas Moore; two modern-day martyrs slain during the Holocaust, and the legendary tales of Bartholemew, who fought and imprisoned demons, and St. Vitus, who calmed the lions attacking him in the Coliseum and emerged from the flames of torture unscathed. This book explores the historical tortures inflicted on the early Christian community by the Romans; the oppression that followed the Church of England's split from the Vatican; and the backlash against European evangelists in the New World. 192 pp.
