The history of King David's last days, Solomon's reign, and the prophets Elijah and Elisha are intriguing and exciting parts of the Bible, and the MangaBible team puts a comedic twist on them. More of a modern visual commentary on the text than a faithful adaptation, anachronisms (binoculars in ancient Israel?) and modern slang (is "Don't have a cow" in the Bible?) are used to convey the stories to 21st century audiences to both facilitate understanding of the larger the story and to encourage the reading of the actual scriptures.
Solomon crushes the competition in the fight to follow David as king, and then asks for godly wisdom to rule well. But when his expensive taste for luxury costs the people too much, Israel refuses to allow any future ruler to demand more from them---even if it means breaking the country in two! Enter the palaces of 1 Kings to meet leaders---both good and bad---who rule either for the cause of God and his people or for their own selfish pleasures.
