Graphic adaptations of the Judeo-Christian bible are a hot trend, from R. Crumb to Rob Liefeld. This treatment proclaims "God is the original action hero" and presents more than 200 Bible tales in comics form. An "action-movie" treatment of the Old and New Testament should have real potential, but it's not realized here. There are a few stunning moments, but they're more weirdness than spectacle: Adam lamenting that--after eating the forbidden fruit--he's not wise, just naked; Cain reflecting that he hates sheep. For the most part, artist Cariello has taken a Classics Illustrated approach, with just the highlights recounted in episodic form. A lack of emotion in the art is a particular weakness given the drama inherent in the source material. But the most disappointing aspect of both the art and the story is their lack of epic scope. However, the book does give the faithful a graphic interpretation of more obscure Bible tales. Ages 8–up. (Sept.)
