He's been called “the Hieronymous Bosch of comics.” And, oh dear lord, he's about to make a comeback.
Basil Wolverton's "Bible Story" has been tweaked by son Monte, given the good housekeeping seal of approval by the GICcies* at WCG (I'll be interesting to see what they cut out) and is due to hit the bookshops later this year. It's re-titled The Wolverton Bible.
And get this: every one of those amazing original BS illustrations has been included.
Amazon has preview pages up. Being released in December it'll make an ideal (turn over in your grave Basil) Xmas gift!
*GICcies, a possible replacement term for COGgers, now that Joey ("if you don't like my rules I'll take your ball and YOU can go home") Tkach is trying to rename his made-over sect Grace International Communion. Any other suggestions?
