Hi Al, I know you like Christian comics so I know you'll love The Word for WORD Bible Comic, (Unabridged, historically accurate graphic novel of the Bible with a high view of scripture. For ages 15+) please check it out at the KS page, it's going well but I still need lots of backers so I hope as a CCAS member you'll please pray on pledging to support this project...

I almost finished with my graphic novel. But, I’m undecided about distributing to Christian bookstores. I HAVE decided NOT to deal with comics’ Direct Market (which I used to deal with in the past).

Who should I look to in regards to distributors in the Christian bookstore market? I believe there are Anchor (church supplies?), Spring Arber, and STL, and CBD (Christian Book Distributors). Are there any others? Who should I avoid? Who should I contact first?

I’m also concerned about returnability and whether I need to purchase a bar code or not.

Any thoughts?

Hello, everyone!

Yesterday, I received my comp copy of ARCHIE: 50 TIMES AN AMERICAN ICON (which includes my Hero Initiative ARCHIE #600 "original cover"). The book is offered in both hardcover and softcover. You can find ordering info here at the Hero Initiative blog (don’t know if html codes work here, or not):

http://heroinitiative.blogspot.com/2011/03/archie-50-times-american-icon-book-now.html

The Hero Initiative (a worthwhile charity in the comic book industry) did their "original cover" project with Archie Comics. This project used 50 artists to illustrate original covers for ARCHIE #600 (the "Archie Gets Married Part 1: The Proposal" issue). Each comic book was auctioned off to generate funds for the Hero Initiative.

The Hero Initiative (God bless them) had asked me to draw one of the ARCHIE #600 original cover comics, and I was very happy to contribute. The front cover has the Shield reacting to Archie and Veronica’s wedding announcement. The back cover is my tribute to Dan DeCarlo (the creator of Josie and the Pussycats) with my interpretation of Josie. This is the first time (I think) that I ever drew Josie. Anyway, I felt like sharing because my Josie (and the Pussycats) back cover is kinda rock n’ roll. Plus, tipping-the-hat to Dan DeCarlo seems like the right thing to do, especially with such an important project as this one.

HI Al,

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm Scott A. Shuford, one of the new Board members. I wanted to stop in and say thanks for being involved with CCAS! If you have any input or would like to be involved with anything in particular, please let me and Eric Jansen (Membership Coordinator for CCAS) know by contacting us both through the site. We'll be making several announcements in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. To see a bit more about me, check out my profile here on the site. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better.


...and yes, Souba is everywhere!

At Your Service,

Scott A. Shuford
CCAS Board Member 2008-2010


Consider the words of C.S. Lewis:
"If there lurks in most modern minds the notion that to desire our own good and to earnestly hope for the enjoyment of it is a bad thing, I suggest that this notion has crept in from Kant and the Stoics and is no part of the Christian faith. Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that our Lord finds our desires, not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling around with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at sea. We are far too easily pleased."
