    Based on the title and cover, I thought this book might be about characters in comic books. No, it's about developing one's own character through experience of reading comics. Sort of. Mostly it's another boring recitation of the morals of Christianity, with the added twist of how comic books can contribute to that. As someone whose moral character was greatly influenced by reading comic books as a youngster, I found the connection between comics and the Bible presented here tenuous at best.

As someone whose moral character was greatly influenced by reading comic books as a youngster, I found the connection between comics and the Bible presented here tenuous at best. And Zimmerman's knowledge of comics and comic book characters (at least as much as he presents it in the book) is superficial. (Most of the references to Daredevil, for example, are about the really awful Ben Affleck film version.) Not recommended for comic book fans.
