The Action Bible

The Action Bible just came in the mail today from Amazon. This is going to be so cool -- the Bible as an action comic! The kids are not going to be able to put this down.

I've been looking long and hard for good Catholic comics, but they are hard to come by. Arcadius Press had some good looking ones (Stories of the Saints), but they went out of business a couple of years ago before I started looking. (Anybody got one?)

There is a Catholic comic company that puts out Manga-style graphic novels of Paul: Tarsus to Redemption and Judith: Captive to Conqueror.  I got one of Paul, but I'm not wild about Manga.  I like Marvel style better. On the other hand, this company is making a Pope Benedict XVI Manga comic available at World Youth Day in Madrid.

In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy The Action Bible illustrated by Sergio Cariello -- and the kids will too.
