A new comic book tells the story of the Bible… from Satan’s perspective.
That’s the thread that this story follows.
Hammond tells the story of the Archangel Samael who reminds readers that history is written by the victors. As we learn about Samael’s journey, he grapples with “the concepts of free will, subjective truth and predestination.” While he longs for his own freedom, he’s constantly reminded that God controls his destiny. I may be biased, having edited the book, but it’s a fascinating depiction of religious literature that reminds readers there isn’t just one way to read the Bible — or even one character whose perspective is worth considering.
