    Zanjan (A Graphic Novel) is a rich fictional work that is based on actual events from one of the many dramatic episodes surrounding the emergence of the Baha'i Faith in mid-nineteenth century Persia.

    Do you know if it will show Bahá'í manifestations of God? If it does, will it show them fully, or silhouette?

    How do you feel (if it will) about them being shown?

    Odion .. Thanks for your post!

    Nope! The portrayal of the Bab or Baha'u'llah in works of art is forbidden.

    The Zanjan graphic novel will have no illustrations of a Prophet or Manifeszattion of God..Here is a preview:[​IMG]



    and here is some more information I came across in the form of an interview with the author:
