Testament: New Price, Old Interview 

Jeff Newelt dug up this interview for Write Now! back in 2007, as a way of celebrating the release of Testament and its new discounted $12.99 pricetag for the whole series. 

Jeff's a good friend, so the conversation goes deeper than most. We talk about the comics writers and artists who influenced me while I was writing Testament, and the challenge of pitching stories as lurid as the Bible to modern-day publishers.

Interestingly, we spend a good deal of time talking about whether the Bible stories I "futurize" in Testament were still truly relevant to a 2007 audience. Little did we know that the markets were about to crash, and that cryptocurrency and deep government surveillance would become real phenomena at the center of the public conversation. 

Of course, that Biblical stories are timeless is actually the point. It's not just a portal to the past, but to the future and maybe more importantly, the present. 

Thanks to Danny Fingeroth and Two Tomorrows for letting us post the interview.

You can get the complete Testament Omnibus at Comixology

You can also read Jeff's original review of Testament for HEEB Magazine, here.
