If you are not Catholic, Lutheran, LDS, Reformed or Orthodox, you may not have been taught what happened to Jesus after he was crucified and before he was resurrected. The Harrowing of Hell tells of Jesus descent into the underworld.
Whether you are a believer in the story or not, the art alone is worth buying the book. It is pen and ink. The images have the broad strokes of a woodcut. The dramatic and deep blood red coloring makes the scenes of the underworld pop. 4 stars!
Thanks to Iron Circus Comics, Letter Better Publishing and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
I also reviewed this author’s previous graphic novel, Rice Boy, and I loved it too!
