The unusual Christian comic book, titled Good and Evil has been described as the ultimate superhero comic, a story of sacrifice, war, temptation, betrayal, hope and redemption.
The Good and Evil graphic novel began as a project of No Greater Joy Ministries, an organization operated by husband and wife team Michael and Debi Pearl. These dedicated Christians were convinced there had to be a better method for sharing and teaching Gospel stories in a more relevant, contemporary format.
The Pearls were aware of the popularity of comic books, particularly with the younger generations. They knew that classics such as Batman, Superman and Spiderman had started as simple cartoons with powerful messages about good and evil. These comics had eventually grown to become television series and major motion pictures with international merchandising.
The Pearls approached retired Marvel Comic artist Danny Bulanadi, and pitched him their creative idea of illustrating the stories of the Bible in a colorful, contemporary, chronological, graphic novel format. Bulanadi accepted, and went to work on the massive project that consumed over two years of the talented artist's life.
Today, teaching your children values can be effortless, enjoyable and rewarding with the help of the Good and Evil comic book. This unique book, offering important lessons about love, kindness, patience, faithfulness, self-control and gentleness, has already been translated into more than one hundred different languages. Good and Evil has been a particularly powerful and important book in corners of the world where the Bible is banned.
Most recently, No Greater Joy Ministries has undertaken the production of a Christian fiction movie documenting their amazing journey and impressive process of creating the Good and Evil graphic novel.
