A Network of Christian Fellowship for Comics Fans, Pros, and Amateurs

I haven't been here in a long time, but I have been meaning to try getting back into creating Christian comics again.

The one I wish to create most involves someone who grows up in poverty and wishes to fight against injustice and corruption in his country but feels powerless to do so. He soon meets a Christian missionary with a lot of money, who's heard of some of the good things the main character has done for the community and agrees to fund him secretly. Though the main character's actions and traits are often questionable; such as claiming to fight for God, even though he apparently got saved recently. And the missionary who funds him is starting to doubt the other's character and actions, even after all the advice and guidance.

Maybe the theme would be redemption and the main character realizes how flawed he is after many mess ups, but still wants to fight for freedom in a more Christian way.

Though much of the content might be questionable for a Christian comic, it might help it get attention.

I have many ideas for this comic, but also feel I could use a writer who is knowledgeable in how politics and revolutions work or similar situations. Though I should research more of that myself too.

I would like to create Christian comics that are different from the usual ones I have seen.

I think so. Some of the heroes in the Bible didn't want to be heroes (Moses for instance).      

Dear Mr. Duarte:
To echo Mr. Ives, many of the giants of the scriptures didn't want to be heroes. I think your idea has a great deal of merit, however. It might be good to show his adventures being a journey from darkness to light, however, with the hero coming to Christ at the end of his struggles, growing in the process.
