Michael and Lucifer agree that his plan is brilliant.  Both look forward to the creation of a new creature, but Lucifer has trepidations that the Lord may no longer love his Bright Ones.  The two angels watch him as he creates the earth filled with flora and fauna, and finally mankind in his image to rule the planet.  He assigns Lucifer to be their guardian.  However, Lucifer becomes increasingly upset and jealous as God spends all his time with the new species while ignoring them.  Though he insists to Michael that God’s work is perfect, he wonders to his friend how the Lord would react if they enriched the plan.

Targeting middle school students, the first Action Bible graphic comic provides an entertaining interesting adaptation of The Story of Creation.  Enhanced by Sergio Cariello’s wonderful illustrations, Caleb Seeling brings to life the all-male quintet and their reactions to what happened in the beginning when God created humanity.
