We all know the story of Jesus but for every hero, there is a villain and every villain has his own story to tell.

Judas Iscariot, The Betrayer the man who sentenced Jesus to death! But was it all his fault or was he merely a pawn in the Greater scheme of things? This comic delves into the life of Judas leading up to the act that made him infamous. It wasn’t the greatest of lives but whose was back when he lost loved ones, lived on the street and then met Him.

This is a really interesting read, it doesn’t just paint Judas as the classic evil Bad guy but rather just a normal bloke swept along for the ride who starts to question whats going on. We know his story ends with a short drop and a sudden stop but what we didn’t know was that that wasn’t the end of his story merely the beginning.

The first issue covers the well-known story and hints at what to come to the next issue is where it looks like its going to get really interesting

A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
