Rating / Review: The End Times of Bram & Ben

Written By: James Asmus
Written By: Jim Festante
Art By: Rem Broo
Cover By: Rem Broo
Price: $12.99
For readers age 16+

The cult-hit, Manning Award-nominated miniseries gets collected with bonus content! When the Biblical apocalypse starts, charming bastard Bram Carlson is raptured into Heaven in a "clerical error." After he’s sent back to Earth, Bram decides to cash in the end of the world for all it’s worth! But can his anxious roommate Ben save his friend from himself—and the mounting forces of Armageddon?

End Times of Bram and Ben is 2 parts Kevin Smith's Dogma, 1 part the CW's Reaper, shaken in sophomoric Meatballs comedy, poured over Spaced-reminiscent characters, and served in beautiful Chew-esque art.

This is a fun book that will sit well with those willing to laugh at religion. Readers who appreciate any of the aforementioned cultural references will likewise enjoy and appreciate this collected comic series. Readers who aren't familiar with any of those references and are offended easily might want to pick something else.
