The prophet Jeremiah takes center stage as Kingdoms addresses the last days of Jerusalem as a free city. Ben Avery takes what might seem like endless dire prophecies and delivers the narrative of the story behind the biblical books of Jeremiah and Lamentations. Continuing the epic sweep of the era of the great prophets, the series illustrates, in both words and pictures, the very visual object lessons Jeremiah used as part of his prophecies.

1 & 2 Kings and 1 & 2 Chronicles tell the history of Israel and Judah following the Davidic dynasty through the exile in Babylon. Against this historical backdrop of the rise and fall of maneuvering kings and warring empires, the fictional series Kingdoms traces in vivid manga style the saga of the dedicated advisor Iddo and his descendants. As he remains loyal to the memory of the just King Josiah and labors to keep his nation faithful to the Lord, Iddo struggles to protect his own family. Destruction looms from the East... while danger lurks within. When the Lord calls him as the prophet to the nations, Jeremiah doesn't know that faithfulness to God often results in mistreatment from others. As he proclaims the word of the Lord to Judah, false prophets and royal officials try to silence him. But as Babylon's army surrounds Jerusalem, the king and people of Judah must choose either to heed God's instructions, or suffer destruction.
