Collecting the 5-issue CRIME BIBLE! A Monk of the Dark Faith is moving through the DCU, seeding evil in his wake as he prepares for a final, potentially devastating act. Trailing him is The Question. Trailing him is The Question, who seeks to save the life of the author of a best-selling expose about the Dark Faith.

Greg Rucka has a penchant for writing a certain type of character. Originally published as a 5-issue 52 Aftermath comic series, Crime Bible: Five Lessons of Blood was collected into one trade paperback volume under the revised title, The Question: the Five Books of Blood. It shows in Queen and Country, Whiteout, Checkmate, and especially in his choosing to write Rene Montoya as the Question. I got the good fortune of getting to read them as the individual comics, and they read really well. Split into their five stories, it follows aspects of the Crime Bible; Deceit, Lust, Greed, Murder, and then the finale where Rene must face up against the Dark Faith’s leader.

Greg Rucka handles the writing as he did a lot of the writing for Renee's character during 52. I like how each issue focused on a different lesson leading up to the final climatic issue "The Parable Of The Faceless.

The Crime Bible, introduced in the pages of the hit series 52, is a near-mythical text passed on behind the scenes from master criminal to master criminal in the DC Universe. This trade paperback explores a subset of the Crime Bible known as the Five Lessons: the lesson of deceit, the lesson of lust, the lesson of greed, the lesson of murder, and the fifth part, entitled "The Parable of the Faceless." Only three copies of the Crime Bible exist, and two are in the possession of The Question, an anti-hero with no face. Can she track down the final copy?

Greg Rucka at the top of his game writing a character who never got her due. It's a good read, but it's sad that this comic wasn't the hit it deserved to be.
Samowar
If you love Renee Montoya and/or Batwoman, this is the story for you.
Anayajurus
The questions a classic DC character that has to be tasted sparingly otherwise you can but out on him. Those is a great story that stretch the characters legs.
Bliss
This continues the story or Renee Montoya (aka The Question) and the crime bible after the 52 event. Includes crossovers with Batwoman and helps to fill in the mythology of the religion of crime.
Felolv
Very well written, good for fans of the Renee - the Question. But fully understand and enjoy the book, reading of the old stories may be required.

In the aftermath of 52, the legacy of Vic "Charlie" Sage, AKA The Question, was passed on to burned out cop Renee Montoya, and the Crime Bible was introduced to readers as well. Five Books of Blood collects the five issue mini-series from Greg Rucka (Checkmate, OMAC Project, 52) and a host of artists, where Renee treks after a Monk of the Dark Faith who is spreading evil in his wake. Through these Five Lessons of Blood, Renee and many others are tested, tempted, and even converted over to this Religion of Crime. These lessons lead to many confrontations, from a crooked colonel, to the Penguin, to even a showdown with Batwoman. Without a doubt, Five Books of Blood is a dark and gritty tale that features Rucka's skills at his near best. Most of all, this mini is reminiscent of Denny O'Neil's Question series from the 80's; something which Rucka manages to pay great homage to as well as draw from. The five segments each consist of a different artist, including Tom Mandrake, Jesus Saiz, Matthew Clark, Diego Olmos, and Manuel Garcia; all of which turn in great work. The only real problem with Five Books of Blood is that it's just too short. The story really gets going early on, and it's over before you know it. That aside, if you're a fan of The Question, Rucka, or just enjoyed the Question-starring segments of 52, you should definitely check out Five Books of Blood. It's innovative delivery and Rucka's storytelling techniques make it quite the worthwhile trip.

I never realized this was a female character, I
was looking for the guy on justice league and
ended with this, not so great.
A new incarnation of the Question (the hero Rorschach is based on in 'Watchmen'!) finds herself fighting a cult of crime and murder - but for some reason, they don't seem to be fighting back.
This is a very interesting storyline from DC Comics, and a challenging one. It is poses the idea of a 'religion of crime' based on the life of Cain, rather than on Jesus. The 'Five Books' are an inversion of the Pentateuch of the Bible (the first five books of the Old Testament). They form the core of the 'Crime Bible' - guidelines and prophecies based on cruelty, bloodshed and selfishness. There have been enough real religions like this in the world (the Thuggee in India, the cult of Huitzilopochtli in ancient Mexico) to make the idea truly chilling.
The story collected here was part of a much larger arc. so it doesn't really stand up well on its own. Still, it is definitely involving, thought-provoking and well worth reading.
I strongly recommend BuyMyCollectibles - my experience ordering this used book from them was top-notch. The condition was as good, or maybe better, than they advertised; it was very reasonably priced, well-packed, and delivered promptly.
