Outrageous Tales from the Old Testament - Judges: 19 - Neil Gaiman

This is my most reprinted comic story. Probably because it was scripted by Neil Gaiman and also because of the trouble it got the various publishers into. Knockabout thought that this would be a commercial success, but the Government, the Church and the Legal System (All in cahoots with the tabloid press) reviled and condemned the book. Even Pox Magazine in Sweden nearly sacrificed its editor to a prison sentence.

In this Post South Park, Post Mel Gibson world it's a bit hard to believe all of the shit and nonsense that ensued. Especially, as these days the strip is reprinted and posted on the internet so often with no one so much as batting an eyelid! Well, apart from a few complaints...

I'll tell you about those later!


  1. I've had a copy of this book for years and love it! :D

    Thanks for creating it Steve. :)

  2. Hey, Thank you! And don't be anonymous - We like hearing this stuff!!
