The End Times of Bram & Ben #1 (Image)


Rating: 4 / 5 – Recommended reading

The Rapture happens and all good souls are brought to heaven.

Because of a clerical error Bram gets brought along for the ride, but Heaven tosses him back when they realize he’s not the kind of guy they want up there.  Not your typical “post rapture” story, we don’t immediately get hell on earth, we have life going on mostly as usual with news stories wondering what happened when millions of people (a lot of them children) vanished.

Nicely written by James Asmus & Jim Festante, good humor and some nice touches on what life will be like without all the “goody two shoes”.   I’m guessing this is not something for every reader, you need to be able to read the premise & not be immediately offended, and also be able to enjoy them poking fun at the bureaucracy in Heaven.  In the afterword, they point out that no major publisher other than Image would come within 100 feet of this project, some people just don’t have a sense of humor when it come to poking fun at matters of faith.

I enjoyed it and will be back for the rest of the 4-issue mini series.   Covering the full spectrum of comics culture
