Action Bible, Duck Commander brands expand
Master illustrator Sergio Cariello is back with the Bible’s creation story in an all-new graphic novel, The Action Bible: The Battle Begins: The Story of Creation (9780781411424, $12.99, softcover, David C Cook), for kids ages 9-12.
Releasing Oct. 1, this animated story of the beginning of time takes readers to the Garden of Eden, meeting God walking there and seeing Jesus, the Word, active in creation. Readers see Lucifer betray his friend, Michael the Archangel, and how Adam and Eve fall into Lucifer’s trap.
Cariello teams up with Caleb J. Seeling, a columnist for arts magazines and Examiner.com on The Story of Creation, the first of four volumes.
Willie and Korie Robertson’s son, John Luke, of A+E’s Duck Dynasty family teams up with novelist Travis Thrasher on four fiction books for readers ages 8-12 from Tyndale House Publishers. Titles in the Be Your Own Duck Commander Boxed Set (9781414398174, $29.99, October) also are sold individually for $9.99 each.
After a few chapters in each book, readers can choose to go down different paths in the Duck Commander world—each filled with humor and life lessons. The individual titles are: Willie’s Redneck Time Machine; Phil and the Ghost of Camp Ch-Yo-Ca; Si in Space; and Jase & the Deadliest Hunt.
