In 1946, Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and eccentric rocket scientist Jack Parsons performed a series of rituals to summon a divine feminine being. Her name was Babalon. She was dressed all in…RED. Eisner winner JOHN J. PEARSON (BLUE IN GREEN) joins THE DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH for an occult blast from the past.

This is another throwback issue, explaining some previous things to us regarding the Department and everything going on. But this particular issue explains the red woman we’ve been seeing all along, and it is fantastic. Plus, the ending has a fantastic nod to the main story line.

This issue has art by John J. Pearson. It’s so well suited to the story, and there are some pages and panels done so uniquely that it’s pretty breathtaking. I found myself lingering on the art and really taking in all of the beautiful detail. The lettering is perfect as well.

Grab issue fourteen of The Department of Truth tomorrow!
