Scott Morse's stand-alone graphic novel, VISITATIONS, is considered by many of his fans to be the strongest piece of work in his multi-faceted canon. When you stand the book next to such varied works of graphic literature as SOULWIND, VOLCANIC REVOLVER, and ANCIENT JOE, that's a pretty tall claim. Sadly, VISITATIONS has been absent from comics shelves for quite some time.

Scott Morse - the complete book list. Join award-winning storyteller Scott Morse as he hurtles the varied worlds of our popular culture through time and space, their collision resulting in a most unique amalgam of STRANGE SCIENCE FANTASY!

The classic Scott Morse (SOULWIND) graphic novel finally returns to print! When a woman having a crisis of conscience enters a church seeking guidance, a kindly priest uses a newspaper to show her examples of a divine hand guiding our lives. Only he discovers that humanity is more connected than even he realized, as her terrible secret comes to light. Presented in sepia-tones, VISITATIONS is a must-have for any graphic connoisseur.
I am hcv men
I picked up this book at the San Diego Comic Con after it was recommended to me by Tom Beland (who writes "True Story, Swear to God" which you should also read). I found it to be one of the most beautiful and moving graphic novels I've ever read.
A distraught woman visits a church looking for some peace and quiet, but despite her pleas, she is interrupted by the resident minister who senses that she needs someone to talk to. She tells him that she does not believe in God. Unfazed, the minister bets her that he can convince her of God's presence simply by looking at three random stories in the morning's newspaper.
Each story the pair reads is filled with the sort of tragedy and loss that is commonly associated with the news. Nevertheless, the minister makes a case that God had a hand in each instance.
The woman remains unconvinced. In fact, the news articles upset her even more than she had been already. She is, however, "saved" by what can be interpreted as a moment of Divine intervention or perhaps as just a lucky coincidence.
What makes "Visitations" special is that it isn't reason that brings the woman around -- it's faith. Faith in God is a choice, not something that can be proven. The story's ambiguous ending gives readers that choice too. It doesn't insist that "this *is* true." Instead it asks, "what would you believe?"
mIni-Like
As a story about the supernatural or the activity of God in our world, I'm not sure it works. But the painted images of the three stories within the story -- especially in the largely silent final story -- have undeniable pathos. Far more than the words of the minister, those images speak volumes of what it is to be human and to be a person of faith.
Mojar
Writers better than Scott Morse have written themselves into corners when they try to write about how we are all interconnected and that seemingly random events all have deeper meanings. A work of fiction is a stacked deck, which makes it hard to supply meaning to random circumstances as the reader knows the whole thing is contrived to begin with.. Of course things work out neatly. (That was the problem with that Signs movie too.) This makes the central conceit of this book a cop out. A well meaning cop out, but a cop out none-the-less. Morse wants to say something profound about that which we do not understand, but he accidently makes himself the deus ex machina.
The art's okay, and maybe his other books are better. This is the kind of book that reminds me indy comics can be as goofy as their mainstream counterparts.
Glad that's settled.
