The Book Series
The Reign of God is an epic retelling of the Christian gospel stories. Evoking the dynamism of his life and teaching, it reimagines the historical Jesus within a vivid human drama.
The comic’s striking black-and-white brush art emphasizes the true-to-life portrayal of the people and landscape of ancient Palestine. The Reign of God revolves around deep questions not only about faith, but about friendship, courage, and power.
The series is a self-published work, born from an artistic vision and broad research independent from any church organization. Book 1 was released in 2017.
Issey Fujishima is a Japanese-German artist based in Jakarta. The Reign of God is his passion project centering on the historical Jesus.
Issey has contributed short to the comics anthologies “Comic Sans” (Australia) and “Why Faith?” (US), and has written articles for “Inheritance Magazine” (US).
