Drawn from the mythology of myriad cultures and the ever creative minds of the artists within, we are taken from the fog of Niflhelm to the frescoes of Florence in a worldwide collaboration of yarn-spinning talent.

"The Biblical creation myth proposes that God created the world in seven days, or six plus one day off to chill out, so in that spirit the two-dozen cartoonist-shamans corralled into this compendium were given just seven pages to devise their own version of how we all got here. . . . Entire world faiths have been built on equally unlikely accounts. Perhaps if enough readers of this volume start believing in certain stories, they might cause a spate of new religions to spring up based upon them. Pull up a rock and gather round the flickering fire--the universe is about to be born again."--From the introduction by freelance journalist, curator, and lecturer Paul Gravett, co-author of Graphic Novels: Stories to Change Your Life (Laurence King Publishing, 2005)

Features contributions from artists such as Stuart Kolakovic, Ben Newman, Mike Bertino, Brecht Vandenbroucke, and Luke Pearson.
