Two thousand years after he betrayed Messiah, Judas Iscariot is still alive, wandering a world he doesn't recognize. A world where the strangest of fictions have come true: monsters, immortals, gnome-librarians who monitor human history-they're all real. And all Judas wants to do is kill himself. So why can't he? The most transcendent story of the year is here in this all-new original graphic novel chronicling history's preeminent backstabber and his quest for suicide.

    A controversial offering from Prince and Amour but one certainly worth a look. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed this book. It has a good plot and story with an optimistic theme with good art. I do feel that it could have benefited by introducing and clarifying some of its ideas like the aforementioned librarians earlier and better, but it definitely tells an entertaining and engaging story that comes together in the end.

    There is simply a lot to unpack in these 150 pages and multiple readings are certainly encouraged. What is the role of the multiple visionary come crazy characters? Prophets, surely, but theres more there. The idea of the word as a drug and the plethora of other imaginary drugs are fascinating. It may not always be smooth, but theres a captivating aura to this book that refuses to let go of your imagination. Its grounded then its ethereal. Its dark and then its eminently hopeful. Its part One Hundred Years of Solitude, part The Unwritten and one very tiny part Dogma. A story that triumphs the power of story, Judas: The Last Days is utterly fascinating and occasionally perplexing, but one well worth seeking out. Read Full Review
