Shannon Wheeler is the Eisner Award-winning creator of Too Much Coffee Man, who has appeared internationally in newspapers, magazines, comic books and opera houses. He has contributed to a variety of publications that include the Onion newspaper and the New Yorker magazine. His latest book (with Mark Russell) is Apocrypha Now (Top Shelf Productions). In their first collaboration, God Is Disappointed in You, Mark Russell and Shannon Wheeler’s faithful-yet-irreverent approach to the Bible sparked an instant connection with readers of all backgrounds. Now, by popular demand, they turn their attention to the parts left out of the canonical Bible, including the Midrash, the Apocrypha, the Gnostic Gospels, and more. Think of these as the DVD extras to the Holy Scripture: missing scenes, alternate versions of familiar stories, and long-lost strangeness from Biblical times. This is what the Bible didn’t tell you. And there’s more to the story than you can imagine.
