About this title


The legendary ugly artist of Mad finds God! Cartoonist Basil Wolverton was known for his grotesque drawings in Mad magazine. He was commissioned and later employed by a church to write and illustrate a narrative of the Old Testament. Compiled and edited by Wolverton's son, Monte, the 304-page Bible Stories includes all of Wolverton's artwork for the Worldwide Church of God corporation. Recording artist and noted EC authority Grant Geissman (Tales of Terror: The E.C. Companion and Foul Play!: The Art and Artists of the Notorious 1950s E.C. Comics!) provides an insightful foreword, while Monte Wolverton delivers commentary and background in the introduction and in each section. This volume is authorized and commissioned by the Worldwide Church of God and endorsed by the Wolverton family. Many of the illustrations in this book are regarded as Basil Wolverton's finest work. Still others have never been published.
