Genesis: From Creation to the Flood by Jason Quinn, Naresh Kumar

Well, it was only a matter of time before they turned the Bible into a graphic novel; maybe they'll also do the Ramayana; anyway back to this book, I am not a religious person, but I still found this book enjoyable.

So the book goes from creation to the flood [says it in the title]. In the first section "Creation" God creates the world in 6 days and rests on the 7th.

Next we have Adam and Eve in paradise and then eating from the forbidden tree and being cast from paradise and eventually having children.

Then we have Cain and Abel, personally I like the Supernatural version better; Cain kills Abel to save him from Lucifer and damning himself instead; way better than big brother killing little brother out of jealousy.

Adam and Eve eventually have another son, Seth and his descendant Noah builds the Arc that God tells him to. 

The book was entertaining reading it as pure mythology, the illustrations were decent so no complains there. The dialogue was simple which I'm guessing is a good thing, if the market this to Sunday schools [not sure if those still exist and if they do, poor children][note I'm not religious whatsoever, I'm hardcore on the evolution side of the debate] and parents with young children.
