Alphabet Challenge Round 15
A is for American Virgin: Head by Steven Seagle. Activating my nerd powers while on vacation recently, I found the only comic book store in the country of Bermuda. I have mad skillz.
This is the first trade in a mini-series about Adam, a young Christian whose life was centered around the virginity movement. We see more than that going on with his various relatives from lust to greed. Adam seems to be the most pure until something comes and shakes him to his very core. Cassie, the one woman he promised himself to for life, to love her and only her, was captured and beheaded while with the Peace Corp in Africa.
This trade introduces the characters and I think this series will ask some interesting questions about Christianity and the virginity movement. The first book doesn’t answer all the questions you have but Adam faces an on-going struggle as things come to test his faith.
