Here's a comic book, styled with 8 bit graphics, telling the Bible's Gospel of John

8-bit Gospel of John With a keen interest in all things "8-bit", I found myself perusing a Kickstarter campaign to fund an 8-bit rendition of the Gospel of John in comic book form. Missionary David Pat has a love of vintage video games and has chosen the uniqueness of 8-bit graphics to share bible stories.

In a video, he points out how "dated" many illustrated bible stories - even newly published ones lack an edge of modernity. He wants to change that via 8-bit imagery in comics. He may be onto something since there's a wonderful resurgence of interest in retro unto itself and certainly in vintage video games.

I'm the last person who should be commenting on anything involving religion, but I wanted to mention this 8-bit endeavor. For those who seek an 9-bit religious story, this might make a nice pairing with your copy of Red Sea Crossing :)
