Mark Stancil and Daniel Hancock are team members at Terminus Media, an independent comic book publisher with a really wild line of projects. Dominion: Fall of the House of Saul is a space epic retelling of the Biblical book 1 Samuel. The three of us spend a lot of time discussing the pros and cons of taking a fantastic approach to such an ancient scripture. Samson: Rise is a more text-faithful interpretation of the Bible story, but still using the format of the comic book for full dramatic effect.
In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, we have a lot of fun looking at how comic book fandom can be used to intersect with people’s faiths on a literal level, and why this project works while so many others don’t.
