Doug Rushkoff’s TESTAMENT #1
Nov 24, 2005  

IEET Fellow Doug Rushkoff‘s comic book Testament, on sale December 21, is being described by publisher DC Comics as

Grad student Jake Stern leads an underground band of renegades who use any means necessary to combat the frightening threats to freedom that permeate the world of TESTAMENT — a world very much like our own. They employ technology, alchemy, media hacking and mysticism, discovering a modern threat that has its roots in ancient stories destined to recur in the modern age.

With intricate, darkly detailed art by Liam Sharp (THE POSSESSED), TESTAMENT takes place in an unapologetically uncensored Biblical universe, chronicling the grim confrontations between humans and their angry gods. Those horrifying encounters full of murder, magic, monsters, sex and sacrifice, echo the forces at work beneath the surface of today’s high-tech and highly ideological conflicts.

In the words of comics legend Grant Morrison, “Rushkoff and Sharp unveil the new face of dissent. Make no mistake, the Greatest Story Ever Told continues here.”
