Despite these comments, it is clear from his work that Spiegelman is not entirely irreligious.  . in your journey through the formless void, remember the unity of all living things” (1:102). Spiegelman’s narrative explanation for his use of a Tibetan rather than the traditional Jewish prayer that his father recites during the funeral is that he was “pretty spaced out in those days,” meaning that he was something of a bohemian “hippie” type, interested in Buddhist mysticism and non-­West­ern spiritual experience.

In Wolverton’s version, they look something like modern buildings in their evenness and height, which again contributes to the sense that the past was not very different from the present. Other settings reveal Wolverton’s power to create massive and yet believable landscapes, most notably when the Red Sea parts to let the Hebrews through (98–99). Here Wolverton uses drawings ranging in size from a half page to a full two-­page spread to give the scale and strangeness of the event. He also reveals his skill when portraying Moses’s face as pure light (112) or the fall of the walls of Jericho (142).

For the most part, Wolverton’s biblical drawings are realistic and within the realm of the possible, while being heightened for maximum effect. The result of Wolver­ton’s caricature and gothic ability is an abridged Bible that consists largely of difficult, threatening, horror-­inducing incidents that are rendered as realistically as possible. Perhaps because they seem entirely believable, they are very unsettling. One does not easily forget his picture of the drowning people who refused to listen to Noah and who are now vainly scratching at the stern of his ark as the waters rise (45).
