"The famously subversive US cartoonist Robert Crumb has announced the completion of his long-awaited take on the Book of Genesis.

The acclaimed satirist revealed on his personal website that he had finished the project, which is out this autumn, and which his UK publisher is predicting will "provoke the religious right". Four years in the making, Crumb worked from the King James Bible and Robert Alter's translation to reinterpret the Book of Genesis, from the Creation via Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden to Noah boarding his ark."

Love R Crumb!!! I hope it comes out in the liberal book stores, immediately!! If not I'll definitely order it in the internet. I just read Genesis from the Hebrew translation, too! That's an added bonus!

His daughter, Sophie, is quite good as well, although her stuff is harder to find!

I don't personally like his style, but the documentary about his life was incredible, and depressing! What a troubled family. I'm sure this will provoke the fundies. I'm all for it.
