by thisBy This Shall You Know Him by Jesse Jacobs and published by Koyama Press.  ISBN  978-0986873980.  Softcover with 84 pages.

Synopsis:  Witness the limitless ambitions of celestial beings as they fiddle and fuss with all sorts of molecular arrangements, creating infinitely detailed patterns and strange new worlds brimming with bizarre life forms. By This Shall You Know Him depicts all manner of beasts running, crawling, and slithering towards death’s cold embrace.

I read Jesse’s Safari Honeymoon back in May and really liked it (blog review) and I gave it 5-stars on goodreads. By This Shall You Know Him is similar in that you have an intriguing premise and fantastic artwork. However, that’s where the similarities end, at least for me. There are some disturbing story elements and some gruesome artwork in By This Shall You Know Him.

Even though I didn’t care for By This Shall You Know Him, the 4- and 5-star reviews on goodreads are rightly earned. Just know that if you plan to read it, you are going to read and see some pretty messed up stuff.

Available for purchase Amazon and Barnes & Noble and check your local comic book shop.
