Grade 10 Up–The biblical story of Gideon is vividly and violently updated in this modern retelling of the episode from the Book of Judges. In a futuristic San Francisco, Chinatown is taken over by a ruthless gang of bikers who aggressively police the neighborhood in service of the Mighty Baal, a materialist dictator obsessed with power and gold. The oppressed citizens live in fear until one man, Gid, organizes a successful revolt against Baal and his gang. Good art and solid writing make this an engaging story, but the repetitious images of blood and gore may turn off many readers. This faithful adaptation retains all of the biblical bloodshed in a story that aptly balances character development with fast-paced action. This book will make a good addition to collections that include mature titles such as Garth Ennis's Preacher (DC Comics), Frank Miller's Sin City (Dark Horse), and Brian Azzarello's 100 Bullets (DC Comics).–Philip Charles Crawford, Essex High School, Essex Junction, VT
