    King David last edited by idontgetit on 08/19/22 07:18PM View full history

    A simple farmer's son, David begins his ascension to greatness by murdering wild animals that threaten his father's herd and defeating the aptly named Goliath in a fight to the death. Jealous of David's growing popularity, King Saul continually attempts to have the upstart assassinated to no avail. When Saul dies heirless, David is suddenly handed the crown. But he soon learns that with his great power comes great temptation. This accurate and irreverent retelling of the biblical tale of the boy who grows into a king shines a bright light on some very dark secrets in the life of David.

David starting out the humble harpist to the lecharous and evil King Saul, and Davids harp being the only thing t...

    Kyle Baker maybe one of the most overlooked comic creators there is.  The man can create wonderful art, but most importantly he can write and has the vision to create stories only he has the ability to create.  King David is of the the bible stories Christians and non-Christians alike know of.  King David like us goes through ups and downs.  He may just be one of the most important characters of using examples to improve ourselves.  Absolute power corrupts absolutely, well that is what a fortune...
