If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you. -- Oscar Wilde
I think this is great! When I ran a small bookshop I bought a series of books (the name of which escapes me) from the Catholic and Anglican book convention, one the cover of one was Paul clinging to a piece of wood, around him were Roman soldiers looking scared, they are all out at sea. Paul says smiling, "Hey, this isn't so bad, it's my third shipwreck." They sold out. The one about the Plagues of Egypt was funny too, up to a point. My point is that humorous presentation is wonderful for middle school aged children to get the story into their heads by the use of humor. If you think about Catechism classes, you are presenting material that only later in life will they completely understand. The comics do something similar.
I remember the John Paul II comic, this looks like a fine sequel.
