Christ the Lord: The Road to Cana Graphic Novel Announced

Jesus Christ
I'll bet, if you're like me, when you think of Anne Rice you think vampires. But that's not what she wants you to think - not anymore! She wants you to think - Jesus!

Anne Rice has started a four-novel series all about the historically accurate life of Jesus Christ. The first book is called Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt and the second book is called Christ the Lord: The Road to Cana.

The second book is being adapted into a graphic novel by Sea Lion Books. In interviews, Rice is very concerned with the historical accuracy of the visuals. She wants the pictures to reflect the historical truths of first century Palestine. Below is an initial sketch of the Jesus character from the graphic novel.
