This app is for kids and adults who love cartoon manga. "Manga Messiah" tells the entire story of Jesus, manga-style. The 19-page preview version goes up to the part where Mary and Joseph are looking for a place to stay, after that a few dollars will get you the full version. If you don't like manga, this is still an awesome retelling of stories from the Bible. And if you don't like the Bible, well, it is still really good manga.
