“Winshluss’ universe [is] marvellously offbeat.” – Time Out

Five years after the magnificent
Pinocchio ,Winshluss returns with the hilarious In God We Trust. His multi-levelled retelling of the Bible revises the founding myths of the holy book. We are guided through the maze of the Old and New Testament by St. Franky, with a nose like a strawberry from drinking altar wine and a sceptical attitude. With him, we visit the scenes of Scripture and believe it or not, this is not what we thought! God looks like a retired biker and is a shy and alcoholic seducer, Jesus had a punk phase, Mary is naive and lonely…

From the comic book parody (God VS. Superman) to the adulterous tragedy, through the story of creation and a study of the disappearance of the dinosaurs to the mystery of the resurrection, the density of the book will leave the reader no respite from the horrors suffered by an inept and inconsistent humanity and the acts of an apathetic, drunk and jaded divine power. A true spiritual journey,
In God We Trust seems like a great epic in which the drawing ranges from the majestic to comic strips, prints, watercolours and hilarious false advertising. Absurd and provocative, this rereading of well known biblical characters is a huge lot of fun.

Winshluss’
Pinocchio was Winner of the Best Book (Jury Prize) at the Angoulême Comics Festival, 2009

“I've been waiting for this one since it came out in French last year from publishers Les Requins Marteaux … Pinocchio was staggeringly good … and Winshluss has once again unleashed his unique drawing demon.”

“Many comic lovers and connoisseurs consider Winshluss to be the best comic artist of his generation, and I can see why.”

Forbidden Planet

•Comics retailer

“Sometimes publishers announce books that you hardly dare wait for, out of fear that they will disappoint (even though you know they probably won’t). This is one of them … As with the very well-received Pinocchio, this book is promising to be another showcase of Winshluss’ unbridled and multi-faceted graphical talent.”
