Continuing the Jesus theme for December, our second (well, third) entry puts the “graphic” in “graphic novel.”

The blurb:

France, 1076. Hermance Languedolce, a child with miraculous healing powers, falls in with religious rebels and is branded a heretic. Hideously tortured, he summons a miracle and saves himself, only to be taken in by kind gypsies. When fearsome warrior Karlis Oresund is converted to Christ, he too receives a miraculous ability to sense evil. Entering the service of Bohemond of Taranto, he sets forth on a crusade to the Holy Land, conscripting Hermance by force along the way. Hermance can’t or won’t remember his powers, but can Karlis bring them out of the scarred young man?

I’m not really a fan of the artwork. Marty seemed to make a point of drawing grotesque men (with beautiful bodies) but gorgeous women (with hypersexualixed bodies) (well, the main woman characters anyway). But hey, there’s dicks, there’s butts, and so, here they are.
