    'The Lion Comic Book Hero Bible' is exactly what it says it is, a comic book version of the Bible focusing on the characters. They take a unique approach by renaming the people in the Bible (Elijah becomes Rain Man, Peter becomes Rock) in an attempt to make it feel more like modern comic books. At first, I found it weird, but I went with it and didn't mind it. The book is divided into 2 distinct art styles. Artist Siku does the Old Testament and Jeff Anderson does the New Testament.

At first, I found it weird, but I went with it and didn't mind it. The book is divided into 2 distinct art styles. Artist Siku does the Old Testament and Jeff Anderson does the New Testament. I actually preferred the art in the Old Testament more. The character drawings are more interesting and the frames have interesting composition. Cloaks billow and the characters move more like superheroes might. I'd be really interested to see what Siku's take on the New Testament would look like. The Bible is the story of how God is able to work with common people, so elevating them to supposed superhero status is a bit dangerous. This plays more into the Old Testament than the New. The book covers a lot of ground in it's pages, and I think it does a fairly good job of it. Much of the dialogue is directly from the Bible, and there is an appendix citing all the Biblical references. It's a bit on the intense side so, it may not be as younger reader friendly. Also, having the characters referred to by their special names is a bit tricky, but not too hard to follow. I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Lion Books and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.

    While the beginning was a Word, spoken by God to and of himself, what are we to do in an age when words - the packets of meaning that carry the dim, refracted reflection of the original Word of creation - are being systematically devalued and drained of meaning? Think on it: from the inversion of meanings in slang and street talk to the complete draining of sense and colour and, sometimes, even logic that occurs in business speak, our language is having the sense drained from it, so that the awa While the beginning was a Word, spoken by God to and of himself, what are we to do in an age when words - the packets of meaning that carry the dim, refracted reflection of the original Word of creation - are being systematically devalued and drained of meaning? Think on it: from the inversion of meanings in slang and street talk to the complete draining of sense and colour and, sometimes, even logic that occurs in business speak, our language is having the sense drained from it, so that the awareness of power that once existed in speaking and reading, the belief, sometimes inchoate sometimes explicit, that words carry power and that that power might be made concrete in arenas as different as the working of a spell or the raising of a crowd, that sense of the power of words has diminished and in places disappeared. After all, look around you. Everywhere, people looking at screens but, for the most part, they're watching cat videos or, thumbs blurring, they're playing some graphics heavy game. Our words have grown old and tired. Maybe it's the penalty of centuries of civilisation. Maybe it's a consequence of hearing ourselves speak so much that we have grown sick of the sound of our own voices. Or, more likely, it's the response to the flashy new toys of the video kid. After all, movies are only a century old, TV just over half a century, and the new era of instant visuals is barely a decade old. No wonder people are dazzled by them - they still carry the flash and dazzle of movement, the deeply laid instinct to look towards something that catches our eye. Words, in comparison, are static: you have to seek them out. So no wonder then the Bible, the source of so many of the words, and most of the ideas, that underpin our creaking civilisation is passed over: it's all just words on a page. One way of facing this visual deficit is exactly what Lion have done with this brilliantly produced and richly conceived book: turn words into pictures - to be precise, the sorts of pictures that were the precursors of much of the film and gaming entertainment of today: comic-book art. Siku (Old Testament) and Jeff Anderson (New Testament) draw the Word, and do so with a richness, immediacy and strangeness that kindles the Secret Fire of life back into words and stories grown old with repetition. I particularly liked Siku's take on the Old Testament - the stylisation of his work marrying perfectly with the mythological strands of the Pentateuch. I can think of few better ways to gain a new and fresh take on the Bible - or to have a crash course in the major aspects of biblical history. The Bible has a lot of words - the Lion Comic Book Hero Bible has a lot less! In a culture that is rapidly losing its cultural roots, I'd also hugely recommend this book to any RE teachers looking for a quick and accessible and engaging way to introduce the Bible to a class of de-facto heathens.

    This was a interesting idea. An attempt to make a superhero comic out of the Bible. And the end result is fascinating. I wasn’t sure what I would think - but ultimately, I think it works.

But I don’t know what the authors were intending. I think it works from the perspective of making Bible stories into cool superhero comic stories. The translation is pretty good. But if they wanted to keep some of the meaning, I don’t think they did. I read it as a lot of fun, epic, stories. With cool heroes and cool villains. And even cool monsters. If that’s what they intended, they were successful. But, in this form, the stories seem even less real - and more likely to be fiction. If they were attempting to ground the Bible stories in truth or history, I fear this format does not lend to that. Sure it communicates the Bible stories, but putting them in the format of an epic comic makes them more like unbelievable superhero stories. And in an effort to squeeze the entire Bible in here, some of the stories seem truncated and don’t have a lot of detail. It helped that I knew the context for these stories, but someone coming in fresh may be a bit confused. It was hilarious that they even have the story of the prophet Elisha and the bears attacking the children who teased him! And at least they got it right that the shepherds and wise men didn’t visit baby Jesus at the same time! Regardless of what the authors intended with this book, I think the story and art in this is cool enough to purchase a copy for my own collection. Thanks to NetGalley and Lion Hudson Plc for a copy in return for an honest review.

From the back cover: A stunning new comic book version of the Bible now given the superhero treatment by the team behind The Lion Graphic Bible and The Manga Bible. The story of the Bible is a unique tale of origins and cosmic powers; of the ageless battle between good and evil; of Siku, Richard Thomas and Jeff Anderson in their new book, "The Lion Comic Book Hero Bible" published by Kregel Publications provides us From its greatest heroes to its darkest villains...The Bible as never seen before! From the back cover: A stunning new comic book version of the Bible now given the superhero treatment by the team behind The Lion Graphic Bible and The Manga Bible. The story of the Bible is a unique tale of origins and cosmic powers; of the ageless battle between good and evil; of human potential and human treachery; and of a Messiah--a savior for the world. This is indeed the stuff that graphic novels are made of. Superheroes are the biggest comic genre of all, with many heroes having their origins in biblical characterization and imagery. This is the first Bible retelling to engage with and challenge the superhero genre. From its greatest heroes to its darkest villains, this is the Bible as never seen before! The men and women of the Bible were not perfect, but nor were they ordinary. Faith gave some power – to lead, to save and to destroy evil – while others succumbed to the darkness. But still more was required: an ultimate hero to fight the ultimate battle. The vibrant and edgy illustrations tell Bible stories in a fresh way. The Old Testament tales convey battle scenes and Israel’s triumphs and failures with honesty and grit. And the true emotion of the New Testament is captured through moving artwork and captions. The Bible characters have comic book hero names, which convey their character and how God transforms them. The Lion Comic Book Bible is a dynamic expression of the Bible's depth and power, produced in the style of Marvel Comics. You've heard of Spiderman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Now meet Earthman, Lawman, Warrior Man, and many others. With dynamic illustration using a range of styles, Siku (Old Testament) and Jeff Anderson (New Testament) bring the Bible stories alive for a new and graphically sophisticated generation. We all know Batman or Superman or even Spy Smasher and they are lots of fun but how many of us know Law Man or Rainman or Faithman? Let me tell you I have never seen The Bible presented like this before. The artwork is very skillful and absolutely amazing. By capturing The Bible visually it gives an immediacy to each story that will keep you reading for hours. This is not just entertainment it is The Bible stories given so that we can see the Wonder of God! This a wonderful version of The Bible that we will use constantly as we continue to use the print version as well. Kregel Publications has done a truly magnificent job with it. Not only can we use it but we can give it as gifts to our friends and family so that they can enjoy it as well..

But as a Mom to 3 boys, let me tell you- there is a HUGE draw to the boys. My 10 year old took this Bible for a spin.

Now please note, we are Bible storybook collectors, and my boys have Lego Brick Bibles, the Action Story Bible, and many other story Bibles to choose from. My 10 year old was enticed at the cover, but when he went to read it, he stopped after one or two viewings, and commented that this Bible is abbreviated. He was most annoyed that the Tower of Babel, got only 1 page, and a few words. He then didn't want to read more of the Bible, as it was too many excerpts to him. I was shocked! What I like: stories are accurate and often close wording to scripture. it is a true manga/comic book style, and the text is short excerpts, often in white boxes, so it's easy to read, and it compares to other popular dark comic books. the text- even though not copious details, is accurate, theologically accurate from what I read, and explains concepts/terms in a succinct fashion. it's appealing to middle grade readers, and at an enjoyable reading level for those grades 3-5 readers. (mine just has high expectations based on exposure!) it includes both old and new testament stories and a good selection. it has a scripture index of Bible references, at the back of the book, so if a teacher wants to use it to illustrate a story (like I often do) you can tell at a glance if your passage is featured in the book. What I struggled with: comic book names- as the kregel excerpt states: popular characters are renamed- Adam is Earthman, Abraham is Faithman, and at the start the real names are given at the start of each section. I imagine kids will love this and the names are fitting to the Bible story, and might make connections for children even stronger. dark images, but that's the style. pictures are realistic with naked figures, although that's included in the text, but the authenticity will bother some parents. Overall I think it should have a wide appeal to the intended audience, and I found that it was good information and content. So it serves it's purpose.

    My seven year old son Reed is just at the age where he is started to get into comic books. Now that he can read fluently I look for anything to keep him entertained. I want him to love reading as much as I do but when you are first starting out, it’s a different kind of reading.

Now that he can read fluently I look for anything to keep him entertained. I want him to love reading as much as I do but when you are first starting out, it’s a different kind of reading. It has to be simple enough for him to read easily and grasp the concepts as well as entertaining for him to want to read in the first place. The Lion Comic Hero Bible immediately jumped out to me because I’d never seen anything like it before. The cover was impressive with it’s characters of the Bible drawn as they would look as what they really are: superheroes. Little boys love super heroes and actually so does my little girl! To give them this picture of Jesus as the superhero that he is truly is genius. The Bible stories are written and drawn just as they would be in a comic book with everything from the print to the layout and illustrations. My son immediately snatched this up and began reading. He absolutely loves it! I was really intrigued by it as well. There’s just something about it that tells the same stories of the Bible in a whole new way. There were a couple of things I didn’t love. Each story has a title at the beginning. I wish that it also showed the Bible reference since it is supposed to be a Bible. It does have a unique title to each story that gives it appeal like “Waterworld” for the story of Noah’s Ark and “The River Baby” for Moses. I just wish it had the Bible reference as well. The Table of Contents doesn’t list the reference either. It can only be found at the end of the book under the “Bible Reference” page which I thought was a strange choice. I think it should be at the beginning tied into the Table of Contents as well as on each page of the story. Other than that, it’s a beautiful masterpiece that tells the Bible in a way never told before, which is really hard to do these days! My son has been reading The Lion Comic Book Hero Bible daily which makes me happy and opens the doors to lots of opportunity for questions and discussion. This is a great version of the Bible for young ones who want to see it in a whole new way.

Sensual edge to female characters Unnecessary references for children (e.g. Rahab was shown to live in the Red Light District--is that really a term readers needs to know?) One thing that surprised me was that although the Ten Commandments were referenced more than one, they were never actually written out in the text. Seems like a pretty big omission! I really, really, wanted to like this book because I do feel like a comic-like Bible could be a wonderful tool to reach a certain group of kids. Just not sure that enough of the genuine message was left intact. My biggest concern in creating a comic like world with superheroes is that it relegates the men of history into some make believe category of mythology. I certainly would not recommend this book as one's sole exposure and foundation of Biblical knowledge. More of an entertaining supplement for older teens. Younger readers may be confused by the new names for characters they have grown up learning about as well as being left with some pretty graphic images of violent deaths. Unfortunately, I think the strongest appeal will be to the youngest readers and I would caution parents to preview the book prior to giving to an elementary age child.

    I have mixed feelings about this book. Were it simply portrayed as a Comic Book of Bible Heroes, it might not be so difficult for me to accept. But being described as a "Bible", to me feels a little out of line. Personally, I wouldn’t want my children or teenagers to see the Bible as a comic book.

There were also a few things in it, I felt did not exactly line up with my knowledge of the Bible, such as God does not say "KABOOM" when He creates the world. I do understand why someone would design a book like this, though. And I suppose were it the only way you could interest someone in the Bible, it may have it’s place. But I was not personally impressed with it. I even shared it with some friends to get their opinion and it became somewhat of a “joke”, humorous. This is certainly, not the respect I would give the Bible. So my interpretation of this book would be more a comic book of Bible Heroes. In that light, perhaps, a person could glean something from it. My opinion of the book however, does not reflect on the artists ability to draw comics, or create comic books. They are obviously very talented and attempting to use their talents in a way they feel honors God. The artistic portrayal of the people in the Bible was quite interesting. Some of the figures are a bit "comical" no punt intended, and the names are changed. Adam is Earthman, Noah begins as Rainman but then becomes Rainbow man. There are quite a few other interesting names for the Bible characters portrayed. Some of them sound like they came right out of the movies. And a few parts were downright dark and scary looking. It starts and the beginning and goes through the New Testament. It certainly does not include the whole Bible, but does include most of the main stories in a short text version. This book was just not right for me or my family. I was provided this book in exchange for my honest opinion from Kregel Publishers. I am not required to review it positively.

    Great Overview. The book is chronologically organized and covers many stories – far more than most children’s Bible storybooks I’ve seen – albeit in very condensed form. Bible References. There is a page of Bible references in the back.That makes it easy to read the Bible passages that go along with each chapter for more context. Quality Graphics. The graphics are very well done.

Rainman becomes Rainbow Man after Waterworld (you can guess who that is), and then there are Earthman, Star Girl, Star-Men and Sheep-Men, Outsider, Deliverer, Rainmaker, Watchman, and many more heroes. Dark Side. We’ve dabbled in graphic history books for a bit to meet my 8yo daughter’s nonfiction reading requirements, and she’s noticed that there are often “dark” illustrations, scary even, with shadows and sinister-looking beings. You’ll find the same in this book. While she doesn’t appreciate it, it doesn’t stop her from reading. A Softer Side to the New Testament. After seeing the sharp shadows of the Old Testament heroes, I was pleasantly surprised to see a softer side to the drawings of Jesus. I realized later that a different artist did the New Testament chapters. Not that I don’t appreciate the Old – and perhaps it’s fitting for the darker time period that existed before the Light of the World was born? Overall, this book isn’t for everyone, and it’s not a standalone Bible. The littles, unless they are already comic book lovers, could find it a bit scary. However, it’s a well-designed, entertaining book that can inspire Bible study, and at the very least, encourage readers to see the familiar Bible characters in a whole new light.

To fight the ultimate battle.” What a great and honest summary of the Bible! Also I want my kids to realize they are not perfect, but WITH GOD they are not ordinary either. They can lead and save and destroy evil, because Jesus who fought and won the ultimate battle is their Lord and Savior and Ultimate Hero! My son found it intriguing. “Read another one, please!” My daughters weren’t too sure, such as “Why did they draw his eyes so scary?” (Don’t you think Pharaoh’s dreams probably scared him?!) They all agreed that the “Hero” names given to some of the men and women in the Bible were great!! Some examples are Abraham as Faithman, Ruth as Fierce Friend, Joseph as Dreamboy, Mary as Wonderful Woman, and Paul as Grace Man. I’m not sure why they chose to use two different artists - one for the Old Testament and one for the New Testament. Maybe to appeal to more, because the styles are very different. Suiku’s seem to be more of a comic book/superhero style while Thomas’s is more realistic. On a personal note, my family ended up agreeing that they liked the New Testament depictions better. **Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The cover was very well designed in order to lure children into wanting to learn about the Biblical characters. One of my favorite scenes was when Joshua and Caleb had no doubt that God could protect and help them defeat the massive giants. These giants was portrayed tough and they looked like evil villains you wouldn’t want to come across. I would recommend this amazing comic book to children and young teenagers. This comic Bible would make a great introduction to children who are eagerly wanting to learn more about our loving Creator and the lessons found in scripture. I enjoyed reading this dynamic new comic Bible and I highly recommend it, if you’re a fan of comics!

First of all there is a table of contents that is divided between the Old and New Testament that makes it easy to turn to whatever Bible story you might want to read, and this book really covers a lot of the significant topics from the beginning to the end of the Bible, I was surprised that there it even touched on the topic of the Giants in the Bible a topi I wasn't sure how I would feel about a comic book version of the Bible but honestly I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this book!

There is also a page of Bible references in the back of the book that allows the reader to pair the scripture with the story for a more in depth reading. I thought it was neat the the characters of the Bible were given superhero names. Overall I think this book would easily appeal to comic book fans, and just might get a younger reader who enjoys comic books interested in reading the Bible. Certainly a unique way to present Bible stories! A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. My oldest one is 10 years old, and she whines and balks about going to church, or anything related to God. However, at the same time, she has started getting more interested in Comic books, or as they are termed now, graphic novels. I was really hoping this would be an in for her, and amazingly enough, it was, for awhile. She does love reading it. The stories are short and exciting enough for her to keep her attention.

My only hope is that she keeps going back to it or remembers her time with it. I was reading through it myself, the graphics are superb, I love them.They are realistically drawn with the graphic book qualities that are so intense. The stories are extremely short, usually one or two pages but these snippets get to the heart of the snapshot we are shown. If you have a child who loves graphic novels, and you want to introduce them to the Bible, this would be a great present for the child.
