Reforming Scripture Study Haters One Comic Book at a Time

Tracy McKay, who blogs at writes that iPlates "piqued my grumpy tween into devouring a scripture story and raving about it to his friends. No joke."

Our favorite quote:
I might even like reading scriptures if I could read them all this way. I can’t wait for the next one.   ~Jeffrey M, Age 11, Hater of scripture study.

"The perfect baptism gift for an eight-year-old boy"

Shelah Mastny Miner and her eight-year-old son Isaac review iPlates Volume 1 on Shelah Books It.

Our favorite parts:

From Isaac: "Wow. That was cool!"

From Shelah:  "A story a prepubescent boy would love, with plenty of blood and piles of arms and made up Nephite curse replacements."

"As entertainment/a gentle push toward doctrinal stories for a Mormon? I think it succeeds"

Even Adults Like It

Theric Jepson, editor of the award-winning "Comics Issue" of Sunstone, and Monsters and Mormons, gives iPlates a thoughtful review.

Some highlights:
And if the name Zeniff doesn’t immediately bring to mind a hundred adaptations, that’s exactly why I think Zeniff was a great plan.
May I just say that I enjoyed the frontispieces? Based on old pulp images, silent-movie posters, greek vases, midcentury American high-school yearbook covers—these were fun for the adults in the house. May we see many more volumes in the future.
