Comments

Originally thinking that he would do a takeoff of Adam and Eve, Crumb became so fascinated by the Bible's language, 'a text so great and so strange that it lends itself readily to graphic descriptions,' that he decided instead to do a literal interpretation assembled primarily from the translations of Robert Alter and the King James Version.
