The Sixsmiths are a family of suburban Satanists who've fallen prey to the global recession. Now their life is in turmoil: the father Ralf needs to find a new job; the twins, Cain and Lilith, need to survive the horrors of the public school system; and wife Annie needs to keep them all sane and under budget. Meanwhile, their estranged elder daughter Jezabelle is having her own crisis of faith. Will the Devil rise to smite their enemies, or will he damn them with hellfire, wrath and underwater mortgage payment? Collects Volume 1, issues 1-4.

 

"This is a great book and the creators should be proud of themselves. I believe it is one of the breakthrough graphic novels coming from a new age of Australian comics." - Black Mermaid Productions.

 

"...a fun read that doesn't take itself too seriously and is trying to show how no matter what religion we happen to follow, we all pretty much the same underneath." - Ain't it Cool News.

The Sixsmiths are a family of suburban Satanists recovering from the global recession. Their eldest daughter, Jezabelle, has returned to the fold with a frightening amount of zeal. Meanwhile, recently converted Dennis O'Dowell finds that adopting a new faith has not made him as cool as he had hoped. But when the church burns down the whole community is embroiled in a crisis. What hidden enemy has brought them this low? Or is the Dark Lord punishing them for their weakness? Collects Volume 2, Issues 1-3.

 

"There's been a lot written about the banality of evil. And evil doesn't get much more banal than the Sixsmiths, a hardworking, loving middle class family who happen to worship the Dark Lord. Hilarious, profane, and even moving, the Sixsmiths is a book you should be reading. Or Lucifer will reap your soul." - Justin Jordan (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, Spread).
