Blogging 159: The unofficial Catholic Channel blog

Comic Book Commandments

According to, a renowned New York artist has added a modern twist to ancient Jewish Law in creating a painting of Biblical proportions.

OK, I didn't write that intro myself, but Eileen Markey did, and it's a fantastic read about "Comic Book Commandments. Below is a sample.

"There is a kind of prayer that leaks out between the panels of the work," said Rand, who is Jewish, but not observant. "Art can't be separated from the spiritual. Any creative activity is an act of prayer."

Rand, a fast-talking middle-aged man with tough, worn hands said he wanted to create a Jewish iconography. The result is an overwhelming wall of pictures, all painted in comic book or dime novel style cartoons that lays out in black and white and purple and magenta just how present God is in all aspects of life.
