King David

    (Vertigo, 2002)
ô and ©2002 Kyle Baker

Eisner Award-winning graphic novelist Kyle Baker (Why I Hate Saturn, I Die at Midnight) has crafted a beautifully illustrated, somewhat irreverent chronicle of the rise of King David of Israel. Beginning during Davidís tenure as a lowly shepherd boy, when he was psalming like nobodyís business, this graphic novel details his battle-to-the-death with the Philistine giant Goliath, his efforts to stay ahead of King Saul and his assassins, his lust for the drop-dead gorgeous Bathsheba, and his struggles to be a good and just monarch. Make no mistake about it: Baker has truly achieved something here!
