Various religious stories told in a most unique way!
I know that’s not much of a publisher summary, that’s the best I could find on their Comixology. That’s not really what the highlight of this or any review is though, right? At least I hope not, so let’s get to it with Modern Testament: Anthology of the Ethereal with the fourth and final volume.
This last part of the anthology features another three religious themed stories. The first, split into two parts for some reason, focuses on the Devil making a deal with a lowlife wife abuser and how people blame him for their wrongdoings. The second then shifts to God, where a scientist learns a lesson about faith after he plans to explain the secret to everything in the universe. The final story shows us Death, and a rather depressed one at that, questioning why he even bothers, eventually gaining his confidence back.
Across the three stories are different artists, as is often the case in collections like this. None of the books really stood out as incredibly great, but neither did any come across as absolutely dreadful. They were mostly around the middle to just below, and for the most part weren’t too hard to follow.
This was a fairly interesting way of looking at the various subjects that the stories told. The good thing is, you don’t even need to be religious at all to see the different points of view. Reading the other three might help a bit more, but this is one I’d just give a maybe to.
