The Wolverton Bible is a retelling of biblical tales from the pen of Basil Wolverton.

every image is dark or ugly or at least plain odd, no matter what it’s portraying touches on an innate sense of menace and fear central to the Old Testament.

Brandon Soderberg of Serious For Comics looks at his work in more detail.

On a related note, Crumb’s book of Genesis should be out soon.
