[[http://holy-bibble.com Holy Bibble]] is a three-panel, daily parody of Literature/TheBible, hosted on {{ComicFury}}. However, its scope extends far beyond that. It has an extensive cast of angels, many of whom play as "god types" (such as Lilith, the goddess of love, who can pose as Ishtar/Hathor/Aphrodite/etc.) At the heart of Bibble is an extensive backstory that binds all of the stories of the bible (as well as ancient mythology and historical events) together in order to try to understand them in a greater context.

Warning: To some who may take the bible very seriously, this comic might not be right for them. Aside from blasphemous ideas, it also includes high levels of violence and sexual content. Even so, most of the content is highly tongue-in-cheek, silly, and cutesy. In other words: make sure your sense of humor is bigger than your sense of righteous indignation before reading.

[[http://holy-bibble.com Holy Bibble]] is a parody of Literature/TheBible and other ancient mythologies. Running through the books in order, it sometimes stops to examine other myths or create new ones of its own with its extensive cast of characters: mortal and immortal alike. Make sure your sense of humor is bigger than your sense of righteous indignation before reading.

As a parody, Bibble encounters tropes at every corner, sometimes even directly examining the origin of a trope, such as with CainAndAbel. Even so, Bibble does not strictly retell ancient scripture. The characters are more fleshed out than would be expected for this type of comic, as is shown by the extensive pages on the cast, places, and other details of the complex narrative. Rather than a simple gag comic, the comic attempts to tell a cohesive story hidden in the cracks of the punchlines.

The comic updates daily on the hosting site, {{ComicFury}}.

However, its own with its scope extends far beyond that. It has an extensive cast of characters: angels, many of whom play as "god types" (such as Lilith, the goddess of love, who can pose as Ishtar/Hathor/Aphrodite/etc.) At the heart of Bibble is an extensive backstory that binds all of the stories of the bible (as well as ancient mythology and historical events) together in order to try to understand them in a greater context.

There are essentially three overarching stories going on in Bibble.

1. The
mortal story, which is often biblical and immortal alike. Make sure your sense of humor is bigger than your sense of righteous indignation before reading.

As a parody, Bibble encounters tropes at every corner,
sometimes even directly examining historical (such as Hammurabi).

2. The angel story, which includes both
the origin of a trope, such as good and bad angels, how they interact with CainAndAbel. Even so, Bibble does not strictly retell ancient scripture. the mortals, and how they interact with each other.

3.
The angel backstory, which tells the story of how many of the angels came to fall in the first place.

Notable recurring
characters are include {{God}}, {{Satan}}, [[{{Main.Lilith}} Lilith]], and the archangels [[{{ArchangelMichael}} Michael]] and [[{{ArchangelGabriel}} Gabriel]].

The comic initally began in 2005, where it was
more fleshed out than would be expected for this type of comic, as is shown by a gag comic and followed the extensive pages on the cast, places, and other details of the complex narrative. Rather than a simple gag comic, bible directly. As the comic attempts neared the end of Genesis with the stories of Joseph, it began to tell update infrequently, and eventually shut down. In 2010 there was a cohesive brief reboot that attempted to include mythological stories (like the story hidden in the cracks of Amaterasu), but it only lasted for about a year. In 2014, a third reboot was started, and continues to this day. The third version included more myths, including Literature/InannasDescentToTheNetherworld and Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh, as well as a backstory of the punchlines.

comic's version of the angels.

The comic's format is somewhere between a long-form story and gag comics. Each comic updates daily on has three panels and includes a setup/punchline format. However, few of the hosting site, {{ComicFury}}.
comics can stand on their own, as they generally depend on knowledge of past comics to understand. Once in a great while, comics abandon the punchline altogether in favor of an action sequence or dramatic moment, though this is rare.

* SatanIsGood: Kind of. He's kind of an arrogant, self-absorbed jerk, but he's also probably the only one among the angels ''or'' demons who actually likes or cares about humanity.
