Reaching a New Generation with The Lion Comic Book Hero Bible
Featuring the Bible’s heroes and villains with majestic comic book artistry, Siku, Richard Thomas, and Jeff Anderson’s The Lion Comic Book Hero Bible is a Bible for a new generation. The full Bible is depicted in comic book form with it’s people reaching superhero status as Earthman (Adam), Rainman (Noah), Dreamboy (Joseph), and Dreadlocks (Samson) leading the way through the story of God’ Word. This is not a little kids’ animated Bible. The artwork is mature and at times even disturbing, but to me, these are not negative attributes. My teens crave material that isn’t babyish, and this Bible certainly delivers.
The Lion Comic Book Hero Bible truly is a work of art. As a mom to boys, two of whom are teens, this is just the type of tool I look to to entice them to dig deeper into the Bible. It is a wonderful way to introduce the Bible to someone, but also a great bridge to the “regular” Bible. My son is intrigued to pull out his Bible and read more after reading parts of the Comic Book Hero Bible. He especially wanted to discover more about the story of the Israelites after seeing it depicted in picture form.
This Comic Book Hero Bible is for comic book fans, reluctant readers, teens, believers and non-believers.
The ‘stories’ are condensed into two- to four-page sections with popular culture related titles, such as The Exorcist, Under Siege, Possession, Total Recall, and Dead Man Walking, that will entice readers to want to discover more. The artwork is what pulled me in immediately–it is dark, frightening, mysterious, beautiful, powerful–just what God’s story should be.
