Revelation X: The "Bob" Apocryphon, Hidden Teachings and Deuterocanonical Texts of J.R. "Bob" Dobbs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You think you know satire. You've seen Jon Stewart, you've read Mad magazine. But you've never encountered anything like "Bob" and the Church of the SubGenius. The SubGenii have reached the limits of satire and pressed further, and in doing so have created a brand of satire that curtails its own absurdity and heightens our awareness of the world we live in. The SubGenii have never been as relevant as they are today. Fundamentalist religion in the extreme, there are no limits to "Bob's" influence. In Revelation X we get answers to difficult questions: We learn the 10,001 Essences of "Bob" and He tells of His Very Own Conspiracy. Revealed for the first time are the Lost Gospels, the Epistles, the history of Mondo Connie, and a detailed description of "Bob's" Heaven and Hell. Also included are the 273 Damnable, Venial, Black, White, Deadly, Menial and Trivial Sins, which include Buffalo Frenching (#4), Luck Listening (#40), Wedbetting (#76), and Reading judgmental lists of so-called "sins" (#273).

About the Author

Reverend Ivan Stang has been making films, drawing comic books, and publishing zines since age ten. Having won numerous awards at film festivals through his teens and college years during the '70s and early '80s, he edited business films and documentaries through the late '80s and '90s. Since its conception in 1980, the SubGenius empire has expanded into five previous books, a weekly syndicated radio show, an annual festival event (X-Day), overseas travel packages, periodic night club acts, and a mail order business.
