Because of his wickedness, Er was killed by God. However, if Er was childless, Onan would inherit as the oldest surviving son. His action was deemed wicked by God and so, like his older brother, God killed him. At this point, Judah is portrayed as viewing Tamar to be cursed and therefore as being reluctant to give her his remaining and youngest son Shelah. Rather, he tells Tamar to wait for Shelah. However, even after Shelah has grown up, Judah still does not give Tamar to him in marriage.

Customer Book Reviews Classic story plus feverish imaginings By Wiredweird on Jul 11, One classic of written word, more than any other, presents back to back images of violence, incest, betrayal, brutal warfare, and degradation of captives. It practically begs for a lurid rendering in graphic and I mean!
That book, of course, is the Old Testament Gen. Yes that Onan, from whom we derive our word for onanism. It starts with a drunken father, selling her off for a few more flasks of wine. One of the good guys, Juda, examines her in depth to establish virginity. He then passes her from son to son like some party favor. Onan appears as one of those sons, with poorly explained problems around the marriage bed and a poorly explained death after a poor performance.
Now, take all that, and add babes of bounding boobage, clothing transparent when present at all, and men with massive endowments and chronic priapism. If curvy hip and cantilevered bust mean more than individual distinctions between one woman and another, and if you tolerate some amount of aggression, non-consensual activity, and perversity, then this Bible story might be for you.
As stated with other reviews, the text can be quite confusing. I understand that it is translated from French and that may have a lot to do it. The amusing part about the dialogue is that most of the time, you will be reading very old-style English as if you were reading excerpts directly from The Bible. The art work in itself makes up for the deficiencies of this book.
Vivid and stunning artwork that I have come to appreciate since picking up "Nagarya". Be warned, the artwork is VERY graphic but beautifully renderred. I can tell the artist has a lot of experience on the female form as that is what stands out in this book. All other figures, particularly male figures, not so much.
All round a very good book! By Jared on Oct 23, Wow, I really liked this book. The art in here is really high quality. The story does get a little confusing at times, and you often find yourself asking why certain events have just happenend.
However, if you can put up with that, and really appreciate high quality drawing you will enjoy this book. Overall I really enjoyed this, and recommend it to anyone who appreciates the full female form.
Have to think about the next one by this author By Rlspectrum on Jan 17, The writing is off at times with misspellings and has very little sex in it. The women are drawn beautifully as they all are in these books.
I guess I was looking for more sexual encounters between the characters and a better storyline. I will give anything at least one more try. Sexy artwork Horribly-bad transitions between chapters leaving the reader what in the world is going on. Pneumatic, sex-crazed females, well-drawn though terribly inconsistent--as if drawn by a very young or very inexperienced artist. Worth a look if you like this type of stuff. Good draw art By Hernan Sancho-madriz on May 20, I love these books because Riverstone surprise us with his particular style, it is fantasy genre, not good to have a real idea about the biblic history about Juda.
Better then other of this theme which is very violent By Mikes Likes Stuff on Aug 18, dialogue is questionable and makes no sense in certain situations. Artwork is great but reading leaves much to be desired. This particular edition is in a Paperback format.
