THE BIBLE GOES GRAPHIC

Comics are in the news again this week. This time my local newspaper, The Springfield News-Leader did a feature on The Manga Bible and a few of us who have been involved with studying it.

As you may recall, I am working on a series of articles and reviews on making religious texts available in the classroom, with support from the ACLU, by the way. Of course this includes as many religions as I can find (Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, etc.). The paper picked up on this somehow and wanted to write a story about it.

The story will only be accessible for a week, so read it quick.

UPDATE: If you know of any titles that I should consider, please let me know. This would also include any graphic novels that might address non-faith or non-religious views as well. I'm not interested in anything too didactic or trite. You can email me (Chris Wilson) at abikerbard@mac.com
