Comic Books, Cartoons, and the Bible

"Comic books are as popular as ever!

In 2014, estimated sales of print and digital comics were over $500 million! The Comic Book Bible, first published in 1995, has introduced tens of thousands of young people to the stories of the Bible.

Bible-themed comic books and cartoons have been popular for decades. In 1986, the creator of Yogi Bear and Fred Flintstone released a cartoon series called "The Greatest Adventure," featuring the biblical characters of Moses, Noah, Joshua, Daniel and King David!

Joe Barbera, founder of Hanna Barbera said, “Kids aren’t reading books anymore, including the Bible. We hope they can learn Bible themes through pictures and action.”

The original video programming ran from 1985 to 1993 and remains available today.

Engage with the Bible—in its timeless story!"
