Wrote and Illustrated - The Bible Story: Was an American cartoonist, illustrator, comic book writer-artist, and professed "Producer of Preposterous Pictures of Peculiar People", whose many publishers included Marvel Comics and Mad.

The immense gathering of Israelites at Mizpeh in the autumn of the year had resulted in many thousands repenting and pledging themselves to greater obedience to God. (I Samuel 7:6.) It was the season of the Feast of Tabernacles. As soon as it was over the news came that a Philistine army was approaching. The people fell into a state of panic. They pleaded with Samuel to ask God to spare them from their enemies. (Verses 7-8.) God Answers! After Samuel had made certain that the Philistine army was indeed near at hand, he had a lamb prepared for a burnt offering to God. Samuel officiated at the ceremony. He had God's authorization to do so because the priesthood at that time had passed from Eli to himself.
