Since the dawn of time, man has looked to the heavens and pondered the existence of a greater power. Is there a God? Clive Barker and Mark Alan Miller have discovered the answer to that question. God is real, and He is out for blood.…

In a desert wasteland, Julian Desmond unearths a figure unlike any other, who calls himself Wick…and who claims to be the God of the Old Testament. Julian takes Wick to the modern world where Wick can operate behind the curtain with the movers and shakers of the world. But when Wick is exposed to the world's modern conveniences, he is disgusted and begins the process of bringing back the old ways. Wick and Julian's journey will span the globe, as neither merely wants to make a mark on a world, but a scar. It's up to Julian's son, Tristan, and Tristan's fiancée, Elspeth, to solve the puzzle of Wick's existence and keep the world from entering a new dark age.

First there was the Old Testament. Then there was the New Testament. Now, we embark upon the newest chapter in our collective history: the Next Testament. GOD HAS RETURNED. GOD HELP US ALL.

Praise for NEXT TESTAMENT (Earthling edition):

“NEXT TESTAMENT is a triumph; a mammoth tome which explores a controversial topic with intelligence, imagination, and daring feats of provocation. It confronts the reader, whose religious preoccupation might lean toward that of belief, to look toward His characteristics and try to justify them. For the heathens among us, it's a soaring epic of storytelling that will enthrall, captivate, and still leave some food for thought to contemplate afterward. All in all, NEXT TESTAMENT is a masterwork of horror fiction.”
—SCREAM Magazine

Praise for NEXT TESTAMENT (graphic novel version):

“A daring and totally original work. Our perception of the reality of god is limited only by our ability to imagine him. The good news is, God is not dead. The bad news is that in a spectacular explosion of dark genius, Clive Barker and Mark Miller have now imagined Him in a frightening new way, and heaven and earth will never be the same again. NEXT TESTAMENT. Read it if you dare.”
—Wes Craven

 “NEXT TESTAMENT is violent, bloody, contemplative fiction.”
—#1 New York Times bestselling author Christopher Golden

 “Wonderfully weird and wonderful. You need this.”
—Joe R. Lansdale

“With creative minds like Clive Barker and Mark Miller joining forces, the capacity for invention is boundless…”
—John Nicol, Fangoria Magazine

“Worship at the altar of your new God of horror Wick, resurrected to life by Clive Barker and Mark Miller, and pray for mercy. NEXT TESTAMENT will blow your mind, shake your faith, and steal your soul and you'll keep coming back for more.”
—Jessica Dwyer, HorrorHound Magazine
