For the past 40 years interpreting and illustrating the Genesis mesmerizing “Supperʼs Ready” (Foxtrot, 1972) has been a dream of mine. I finally have the time to do it and I’ve started the creative process. My goal is to get this project crowdfunded and produced in late 2021 or early 2022.

Supperʼs Ready (Private page)

The Comix

 

36 pages (6.625 x 10.1875 inches)

This is the comix book that illustrates the complete lyrics of “Supper’s Ready” from the band Genesis originally composed and performed in 1972.

Title: Getting Supper Ready

Subtitle: The Making of Supperʼs Ready

 

This is the backgrounder book presenting the many interpretations of the lyrics, how it relates to the Bible's “Book of Revelation,” and how the Supper’s Ready comix was created.

Organized as Movements

In Supper's Ready, there are seven distinct movements (sections). Movement number 2 is called “The Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man”:

Illustrating the Lyrics

Each lyric is represented in a narrative caption along with an artistic interpretation:

 

The final artwork for the page spread looks like this:

 

Interpreting the Lyrics and art

 

Consider the Getting Supper Ready companion book to be like a “Making of” backgrounder piece. This describes how the comix was made, how the art was conceptualized, and presents interpretations of the lyrics.
