THEREFORE REPENT! a post rapture graphic novel
Written by Jim Munroe
Drawn by Salgood Sam
Without warning, multitudes of Christians float bodily up into the sky. For the immoral majority, life goes on pretty much as usual. Except that after the Rapture, magic works — for those willing to risk demonic mutations. And an angelic army appears to have been deployed to mop up the sinners.
But through it all, outsiders Raven and Mummy face the possibility of a bigger problem than the end of the world: the end of their relationship.
Critically acclaimed and poplar with readers, Therefore Repent! is an unconventional apocalyptic page turner.
Praise for Therefore Repent!
“Therefore Repent! is great. Loved the conflict between the old and new religions, plus it’s got Jesus and mutants.”
— Joe Meno, author of Hairstyles of the Damned
“Therefore Repent! is impressive, layered, and in places surprisingly funny. I didn’t think it would be my sort of thing, but I enjoyed it.”
–Jim Ottaviani, author of FALLOUT: J. Robert Oppenheimer, Leo Szilard, and the Political Science of the Atomic Bomb
“Now, just dealing with the Rapture might be enough of a hook, but Jim and Salgood do a great job of characterization from the very beginning. The two protagonists are so interesting that I had to keep turning page after page to see what and who they were. And yes, Salgood can draw like nobody’s business… I give this book two thumbs up.”
–Chris Pitzer, AdHouse Books
“The tale’s offbeat anarchy and peculiar, parodic charms will win you over. It’s like one of those church pamphlets about salvation gone terribly, terribly wrong.”
–John Burns, The Georgia Straight
“Therefore Repent! is an absolutely boundless piece of fantasy that he wisely grounds in very human relationships… to say it’s an imaginative work would be an understatement: ‘unhinged’ is probably more accurate. I can’t wait for more.”
— Robert J. Wierseman, Quill & Quire
“The art is extraordinarily fluid and the storyline ingenious and sharply intelligent.”
–Jeff VanderMeer, Realms of Fantasy
“It’s completely nuts… It’s a book about what if the Rapture actually happened, and that’s all I’m gonna tell you.”
–Junot Diaz, 2008 Pulitzer Prize Winner for Fiction
Joe Shuster Award Nominee for Outstanding Canadian Comic Book Writer 2008
