From the maker of the Manga bible, comes a new manga series based on the life and works of Jesus!
It is very difficult to find Christian comic books, even harder to find ones which are actually of any substance or of high standard. As a dedicated follower of the comic industry I am continuously disappointed, not by the lack of Christian comics, but by the poor quality in script and artwork that current Christian Comics are known by.
It was, with some excitement, that I stumbled across the Manga Jesus. Siku [the writer and artist], is a known comic book artist, I have seen some of the work he has produced for 2000AD and its very good. When he produced the Manga Bible, which has become very popular, I wondered if it was going to be just another poor attempt to bring comics into the Christian market, It wasn’t!
The first time I met Siku was at the Bristol International Comic Expo in 2007 [then later at the Christian Rescource exhibition in Esher the same year]. To see him promoting his work at a national Convention filled me, not only with great hope, but awe as well. Here is someone who has brought his passion for Jesus and comics together to form a great tool for evangelism and enjoyment.
This latest venture, the Manga Jesus is absolutely superb and I recommend everyone buy a copy, not just for personal use [as I have], but also as something that can be given away to others who do not know Christ and maybe want to get to know him more! Not to take away from the word of God, but as a way to lead those of a visual nature into the word, and better understand the God we serve.
