(Continued from 1998)
The story of "Moses" continues. This marked the 8th time the BOYS' LIFE series would cover this material.
An era comes to a close for BIBLE STORIES. These 12 episodes were the final ones by Frank Bolle, who illustrated the series for 20-1/2 YEARS, longer than anyone else, and quite probably longer than anyone on ANY comics feature in the magazine.
In his time on the series, Bolle had done some of the most-detailed versions of most of the stories seen in the magazine-- and done almost all of them TWICE. It's probably just as well he got off when he did. Starting with the July 1999 episode, he began doing the same stories for the 3rd time.
The trend of REUSED text and NEW art continues. If you click "Open
