King David SC

KING DAVID SC (Kyle Baker) The familiar tale of young David's rise to power and popularity while under the paranoid scrutiny of King Saul an irreverent - yet Biblically accurate - treatment. Witness the tale of David, the simple farmer's son who beats the stuffing out of wild animals who would thin his father's herds. Be awed as this upstart pipsqueak faces Goliath, the Gargantua of Gath, in a no-holds-barred fight to the death. Tremble before the might of King Saul and his all-consuming jealousy. When David survives Saul's attempts to have him assassinated, and Saul dies without leaving an heir, revel as the young hero ascends to the throne of Israel. Gasp at David's treacherous lust for the beautiful Bathsheba. Will David rise to the challenges that face him who wears the crown? 160 pp. MR. Im always excited to see a new Kyle Baker project, and this one sounds pretty interesting. Im curious to see how he adds his unique humor to this classic tale. (Roger A.)
