Dan Smith’s old Old Testament

How long have comics and religion been matched together? Well, in the case of the Hebrew Bible or Old Testament, at least the 1930s, according to Yesterday’s Papers. Cartoonist, illustrator, storyteller John Adock posted his appreciation back in September for Danish American illustrator Dan Smith and his “muscular and romantic retelling of Old Testament stories” in 1933.
