Contrary to the back of this book, King David was responsible for the world's SECOND mass briss (Read "The Red Tent" for a graphic depiction of the first one that the sons of Jacob were responsible for).

Kyle Baker shows off his incredible animated drawing style in this retelling of the life of David. Even though it's told with his unusual sense of humour, weird modernisms and wacky sense of art, this comic tries not to hide anything. All of the biblical violence, cruelty and polygamy aren't whited out or censored to make this palatable to kids. It's biblically acurate.

Violence: Fun Fact-- Kyle Baker did a short slap-stick comic for DC Comics about a babysitter trying to take care of a baby Superman. He drew scenes where baby Clark drank milk straight from the cow and the babysitter accidently put him in the microwave (he survived). This comic was severely edited but comics can't begin to match the Bible for blood and violence. David killed women and children Philistines.
