I wrote this book and illustrated every image in it in an effort to create an entertainment tool for Latter-day Saint families to use to educate young readers (and their parents) on the beauties and complexities of ancient scripture.

I was expecting just a comic book. What I got was the back story to the fall of Jerusalem, character studies, a bit of a Hebrew lesson, advice on drawing and beautiful artwork.

I was expecting a simple re-telling of the Book of Mormon. What I got caused me to be more interested in reading the Bible, particularly the Book of Jeremiah and wanting more.

I was expecting to buy one for myself. What I got was enough to share with friends and family.

Awesome comic :) A bit short, but I guess I've never really read comics before, so they're probably all like that. I liked how seemingly mundane stories could be brought to life in full colour, full action, and full over-reaction, lol. I also liked the background of the comic and that the author has a solid knowledge of the stories he's writing about.

I love the new take on LDS scripture. The artwork is amazing and it's well thought out. There are many good things to come in this series I hope. This book was a very good introduction.

Not only is the artwork amazing but I love how much information is presented. This issue felt very educational as the author introduced the story that will develop in future issues.
