An adaptation of the New Testament is published as part of 'The Lion Comic Hero Bible'.
The Old Testament is written by Richard Thomas and Ed Chartelier. Reviews of advance copies are coming in, here's a few.
Mike Perkins, award-winning illustrator for Marvel Comics (Captain America, Thor and The X-Men).
“Siku and Jeff Anderson have brought to life the tales and truths already evident within their respective Testaments providing, respectively, both brutal action and refined elegance. They know their ways around these texts and it shows in the design sensibilities and approaches they have taken. Both artists have produced beautiful work emphasizing the powerful words that have enthralled for millennia and, with this new edition of The Lion Comic Book Hero Bible, will continue to do so for many more.”
David Lloyd, V for Vendetta, Aces Weekly
“Beautiful and impressive.”
Kutter Callaway, Assistant Professor of Theology and Culture, Fuller Theological Seminary
“The people of God need to tell their story in ways that speak intelligibly to the contemporary culture. And it is just this kind of poetic vision that permeates The Lion Comic Book Hero Bible. From its stunning artwork to its compelling re-imagining of the biblical text, every frame seems to vibrate with an energy that exists beyond or beneath its pages, which is just how I would imagine these stories were always meant to be experienced. I highly recommend it.”
David Wilkinson, Principal of St John’s College and Professor in the Department of Theology and Religion, Durham University
“The Bible is about extraordinary heroes with extraordinary stories because God is at work in this ordinary world. For the comic book generation who tell visual stories, here are those heroes beautifully drawn in their triumphs and failures ultimately pointing to the God who in Jesus is the mighty saviour.”
Cliff Biggers, Comic Book News
“The Lion Comic Book Hero Bible brings contemporary sensibilities and a superhero tone to classic Biblical tales, revitalizing the stories without contradicting the timeless nature or religious values of the source material.”
