We discovered the Bible in comic book in French and it revolutionized my children's image of the Bible. They devoured it, and no wonder because these stories are of the timeless battles between good and evil, human fidelity and treachery, and cosmic power. We searched for a pleasing version in English. Many friends (of all or no faith and of a large age range) received these books from us. They're entertaining, informative, and totally "today."
This is a two book series. Manga Metamorphosis covers the Old Testament (from creation to the establishement of the nation of Israel, it's capture, deportation and return). Manga Messiah depicts the New Testament (the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and the birth of the church).
by Jeff Anderson and Mike Maddox
Graphic representations of the Bible are a great way to get to know these foundational stories of cosmic power, battles between good and evil, admirable loyalty and human treachery. It's a challenge to find a visual style that is qualitative as well as modern, expressive, and enthralling. Anderson and Maddox found a visual and narrative style that's engrossing to adults and to teens. That's why it's an award-winning book.

Hands that draw each other. People walking up from the first floor to downstairs. It's possible with Escher. Described as the "architect of perfectly impossible worlds", the master of sureal perspectives and optical illusions shares his works. Of the 90 pages in this book, 70 are dedicated to full color photos of his works. Intriguing, magical, wierd, and technically superb.
Escher (1898-1972) continues to teach every generation a new perspective. He's a modern way to encourage kids to respect older generations!
