JOAN MANEL PÉREZ - ZINE GENESIS BY IDEA
Instead of assembly instructions, however, the book is a “how to” in which, in 29 steps, an all-seeing God character creates Hell, the Earth, and human life.
At first they’re rather straightforward, but the steps become increasingly abstract and reliant on a sort of miracle-like magic that can only be provided by a God.
If you’ve ever had to assemble a piece of IKEA furniture, this situation is all too familiar. Better yet: the Allen wrench included with the manual isn’t put to use in the process of world creation, but is instead revealed to be a gift from the devil to Adam and Eve — it’s their forbidden fruit. Now they (and you) have a tool to takeover the world.
