In A Can at the Crossroads, Raymond Pettibon turns his biting wit and Lichtensteinian melodrama towards Christianity, variously illustrating Jesus, Satan, nuns, and demons. There's still nudity and blood, but there's a consistent focus here that Pettibon frequently eschews for general chaos. Highlights include a drawing of Jesus, holding his stigmata'd hands, accompanied by text that reads, "He must have been a terrible person in his previous lives to have suffered such a slow, painful death." Damn, think about that. But some go for straight humor, too, as Lucifer confesses, "I would take back the time I've wasted looking in a mirror. I could've made people suffer more."
