CBC Spring Preview: Hot Dog Taste Test and Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus

“CBC Spring Preview: Hot Dog Taste Test and Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus” / CBC / December 31, 2016

Hot Dog Taste Test serves up Lisa Hanawalt's devastatingly funny comics, saliva-stimulating art, and deliciously screwball lists as she skewers the pomposities of foodie subculture. From the James Beard Award-winning cartoonist and production designer/producer of Bojack Horseman, Hot Dog Taste Test dishes out five-star laughs as Hanawalt keenly muses on pop culture, relationships, and the animal in all of us. 

The iconoclastic and bestselling cartoonist of Paying for It: A comic-strip memoir about being a john returns with a polemical interpretation of the Bible. Mary Wept over the Feet of Jesus is the retelling in comics form of nine biblical stories that present Chester Brown's startling thesis about biblical representations of prostitution. Brown weaves a connecting line between Bathsheba, Ruth, Rahab, Tamar, Mary of Bethany, and the Virgin Mother and reassesses the Christian moral code by examining the cultural implications of the Bible's representations of sex work.
