This chapter defines graphic Bibles in relation to comics and graphic novels, identifying key aspects that impact the reader’s experience of the biblical material. Graphic Bibles are adaptations of biblical material that reflect a form of visual narratology. Through a comparative analysis of how four graphic Bibles (Testament, The Manga Bible, The Action Bible, and The Lion Comic Book Hero Bible) treat the story of Jonah, the chapter illustrates certain trends among graphic adaptations of the Bible. In every instance, whether or to what extent something is gained or lost in these productions vis-à-vis the biblical source material depends largely on one’s underlying perceptions of what sort of text the Bible is in the first place.
