As only the unfettered Id of Gilbert Hernandez could conceive, Garden of the Flesh is a sexually explicit retelling of the story of Adam and Eve up to Noah’s Ark. Hernandez presents a straightforward adaptation of the Bible parable, but one that also blurs the lines between erotica and pornography, as only Hernandez can. In the Garden of Eden, where Adam and Eve are youthful and beautiful, is sex is a source of happiness, even when it’s psychologically and spiritually fraught? Leave it to Hernandez to explore the story of original Sin from a perspective you didn’t get in Sunday school. As an added bonus, longtime Love and Rockets fans will recognize some beloved characters/actors portraying key players. All packaged in a beautiful, full-color, leatherette hardcover with debossed title and rounded corners.
"Gilbert Hernandez is one of the modern greats, so I would advise that you definitely read this unless you’re averse to comics that are drenched in jizz." — Vice
"It’s time to put the bib back in biblical, and Beto is just the guy to do it." — The Beat
“Gilbert Hernandez continues his seemingly effortless mission to be one of comics’ most difficult to categorize creators with this new graphic novel. After the magic-realist social history of his Love & Rockets material and the supernatural thriller The Twilight Children, where else should he go but a sexually explicit retelling of the Bible from Adam and Eve up through Noah’s Ark? Expect explorations of the Good Book that you’d never find in Sunday School, as Hernandez finds new space to talk about subjects and stories many grew up with.” — WIRED
