Working from a new translation from the ancient Greek text—translated by Frs. Arey and Sevastiades, and adapted by Dorff—artist Koelle crafts a visual tour de force that renders the still somewhat obscure content of the Bible’s final book accessible to those who don’t have the benefit of years of biblical scholarship. The Apostle John’s account of the prophesied final conflict between the absolutes of good and evil is given vivid depiction that strikes the perfect, tasteful tone for the material’s extremes of wonder and apocalyptic horror, as assorted angels, monsters, and cosmic happenstance enjoy a color palette of subdued borderline psychedelia. While casual readers might bypass what is essentially a straight biblical translation to the graphic novel medium, they would be missing out on a page-turner whose marriage of sacred text and spectacular art as still an riveting narrative.
