iPlates at the BYU Library

The Harold B. Lee Library at BYU has an exhibit called "Mormons and Comics" going on until March 2017. If you've ever wanted to see an anthropomorphic Liahona or a missionary zapping the golden plates with a magic ring, you should definitely give it a visit. 

The exhibit includes work from Noah Van Sciver, Sal Velluto, Brittany Long Olsen, Scott Hales, Mike Allred, and a lot of other famous and esoteric artists. You'll be amazed at the diversity of styles and subjects on display. 

There are a few videos featuring Stephen, and a great big quote from Jett. But the coolest thing about it is that right at the very front—right as you're walking in the door—there's a copy of iPlates in a glass box flanked by Book of Mormon action figures. We swear we didn't pay the curators to put us first, it just . . . happened.

NO ONE is stealing this very valuable book!

We're on LDS.org!

With the advent of the Mormons and Comics exhibit at the BYU Harold B. Lee Library, a lot of attention is being drawn to Book of Mormon comics. Including (drum roll, please) iPlates!

In fact, author Stephen Carter's face showed up in an article on LDS.org, the Church's official website (though he looks a bit like he's doing Darth Vadar's strangle hold).
