The Bible in Comic Book Format
Since Superman’s comic strip debut in 1938, “comics”
have been selling in the millions every year for decades.
In those early editions, religion often played a part in the superhero’s character development.
But more recently, the Bible has become the story itself!
In 2010, Kingstone Comics began publishing books in comic book format with titles reflecting books of the Bible--their most popular entitled “The Revelation!”
Kutter Callaway, assistant professor of theology and cultural studies at Fuller Theological Seminary, said that comics are “extensions of religious learning.”
Comic book writer and scholar in religion and literature, A. David Lewis doesn’t see comics replacing the Bible, but being useful “reminders of stories” that link to “modern visuals.”
