The Bible is the new Comic Book

i09 has a story about The Bible being the new hot property to adapt, what with Kings and all the heavy religion on Battlestar Galactica .  They mention that comic book writer Mark Millar is working on making his 2005 comic Chosen  into what he calls his "American Jesus" trilogy.  As one of the (apparently) few people who actually read Chosen , I'm baffled at how it will be a trilogy of anything, since the final page is, quite literally, the end of the world.  We'll see.    Sony Pictures, the distributors behind Facing the Giants , Fireproof , Come What May , and Second Chance  optioned Chosen for a movie ages ago, probably before they figured out that it wasn't really about Jesus and it would probably inspire more protests than The Last Temptation of Christ. 

I'm not posting the most famous image from Chosen, because everybody does that.  But I will post a video that utilizes the same pop culture reference.  You know, for kids.
