Dios ha muerto (God Is Dead)
Irkus (m) Zeberio
17 x 24 cm, color, 112 p., Publ.: Bang Ediciones
World rights available (except Spanish & French).
Thus Spoke Zarathustra had a special origin, mystical and contemplative, born from two "visions" Nietzsche had in 1881 and in
1883. In GOD IS DEAD, Irkus attempts to reveal these images to the reader. A wordless comic (Thus Spoke) trying to return to
Nietzsche's mind before he translated his visions into words.
Nietzsche's book is a kind of secular Bible against Western values, using the actual figure of the prophet Zarathustra as spokesman
of his own ideas. He tells the successive "declines" Zarathustra made from his mountain retreat to explain to men his findings. The
style is lyrical, full of metaphors and neologisms. It parodies constantly religious texts, especially the Bible and its parabolic shapes.
Nietzsche has no sympathy in his efforts to destroy philosophy and the most common ideas about religion, God, art, literature, the
educated, virtuous, culture, poetry...
