Purim starts tomorrow (Saturday) evening.

Radical Torah always has interesting commentary.

And someone has turned Megillat Esther (the biblical book of Esther) into a graphic novel.

Purim's text is the book of Esther, and you can't really get a full sense of it in its Jewish liturgical context just by reading it, but in case you're curious and want to read it and don't have a Bible handy, here are the NRSV version and a translation by Jewish scholars.
