Evan and I have collaborated on countless, weirdo pursuits but this post details our first ever ORIGINAL COMIC COLLABORATION!
Check it out -- 14 pages of full color scripture as (re)told by Evan!!

The idea for this comic was birthed while sitting over cheese fries and Dr. Peppers at the Lucky Penny diner in SF. Something Evan said-- Jesus descending from heaven on a flaming cloud to impart the 10 Commandments?! -- cracked me up. Myself, I was raised Irish-Catholic and got a weekly dose of catechism (fire, brimstone and transubstantiation) from age 10 to 14. Evan was lucky enough to miss all that fun stuff with a non-religious upbringing: no sermons, first eucharist or bedtime bible stories. It's all junk that I take for granted, but HE DOESN'T KNOW THIS STUFF.
So we decided to have Evan retell the Bible to me, as he thought it went. I quizzed him along the way, and he patched together pieces of stories he heard over the years, along with a crazy pop culture mish-mash of Dante, Sandman and Preacher comics, and even Roman mythology. As a rule, I never confirmed or denied any of his Bible tales-- I just put down his words as... well, GOSPEL TRUTH!
We'd really appreciate any comments/feedback! It will be online for at least a week, and will also be available in hard copy for anyone interested. Maybe 3 bucks an issue? If you'd want an actual copy, leave a note or send us a message directly at samehat @ gmail.com!
