The Lone and Level Sands: Exodus from Pharoah's POV

A.. David Lewis tells Newsarama.com about his Exodus comic book:

The goal here wasn't to take Ramses' side, per se, because I am in now way against Moses, Aaron, and the other Israelites. But I did want to make him the main character, because, even beyond Moses, he's the one figure that's in just about every "scene" of the original story. 

He's a king with political, spiritual, and familial responsibilities; he's the Tony Soprano of ancient Egypt, except multiplied tenfold. Therefore, a lot of the really interesting drama seemed to circle around him and his family.
