A tyrant to depose.
A city to defend.
A family to save.
This post is a bit late to the party, but I wanted to write a quick blurb about Carter and Atwood's iPlates Volume 2 after the volume saved my family on Sunday. More specifically, the volume saved my four kids from having to hear their dad ask them to be more reverent in sacrament meeting as one-by-one they took in pure Book of Mormon awesomeness.
I wrote about how great (iGreat) iPlates Volume 1 was two years ago tomorrow. Stephen Carter, editor of Sunstone Magazine, and artist Jett Atwood have again combined their talents to continue the iPlates series, this time with Volume 2, Prophets, Priests, Rebels, and Kings, which is a collection of three comic books based on the Book of Mormon's Mosiah 12-13: "Alma in the Wilderness," "Gideon's Revolt," and "Zerin's Sacrifice."
For a good summary of the volume, as well as some nice quotes from Atwood and an interview with Carter, check out Doug Gibson's article at the Standard Examiner.
Below are some captures from the first 12 pages. I've selected panels with female characters for a reason - the inclusion of female role models is one of my favorite things about the iPlates volumes.
If you aren't familiar with iPlates, or want to see Volume III like I do, buy iPlates Volume 2 now!
