"It's an interesting idea."

"It sounds like an interesting idea. It’s really relevant considering the corruption in the church throughout its history. I’m interested in seeing the issue tackled by a Christian artist."

"I have to agree again, especially in light of today's society. In fact, that could work very well with a hero who is already a Christian, but is in a job such as a policeman a la "Law and Order: SVU", where he deals with the worst of…"

"You're right. Though my character would kind of be arrogant at times and maybe not afraid to use some violence to get his point across, if that's acceptable."

Femi Olowofoyeku replied to David Duarte's discussion Would an anti hero Christian comic work? Has it been done?
"Lovely idea. I think an anti hero Christian comic could work if pulled off with enough genius. If you look from the perspective of the then-religious leaders and critics, Jesus Himself was an anti hero."

"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,…"

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

Brien Sparling commented on David Duarte's blog post I think it's time to make a comeback.
"Thoughtfully worded, Dave; and I agree with some of your conclusions (benefits of forming a team, networking with other artist in your area). I think comics that hinge on religious conflicts and false teachers might appeal to only a small audience.…"

I think it's time to make a comeback.

To my followers, I know I haven't been active lately, but I do wish to change that this year.I've been stuck in a kind of rut for some time, with all sorts of ideas but not really sure how to execute them properly. Or how to promote my art even though I have gotten some attention here. Lately I've been reading through the book Real Artists Don't Starve thanks to a friend who recommended it, and it's helping me realize some potential and that I can't be successful as an artist on my own, which…See More

Would an anti hero Christian comic work? Has it been done?

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…See More

Dominionism

I haven't written a journal entry in a while so I might as well, since this subject is very important to me. Though most of this journal will be of someone else's work. I'll be quoting from Chris Hedge's book "American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America", since he seems to describe them better than I can. Chris Hedges is a cultural critic and what some people might call a liberal Christian. He was raised in church growing up and even graduated from Harvard Divinity School.…

New project idea: False Preachers

Posted on January 30, 2012 at 12:17pm 3 Comments

My artwork has gotten a lot of attention lately (mostly DeviantArt) with the messages I have put in. Mostly positive. So lately I've been thinking of going into a new project: exposing False Teachers/Preachers, founders of cults, con men/women, etc.

I would try draw a picture of one each week, sometimes in a comical way, which shows what they are known for, kind of like a title card and include links to videos and articles to prove that what they have said, wrote and done is true and…

Understanding Islam and Muslim attitudes.

Posted on May 12, 2010 at 2:43pm 1 Comment

No thanks to me being sick, my 2nd and 3rd story of Modern Christians are being delayed. And one of my pens has dried up too so I am going to get a new one.

But lately I have gotten interested in trying to understand what the Muslims think and believe.

A couple of weeks ago I befriended a Muslim on facebook. And with every status update he put up, he seemed determined to disprove Christanity. Showing the flaws of Christianity, questioning and showing verses in…

Modern Christians update

Posted on April 25, 2010 at 8:48pm 0 Comments

Just about done with the 2nd story of Modern Christians. I mean it this time! I really do wish I was done with it earlier!

I am looking very forward to Modern Christians chapter 3. It's mostly about Randy and what it feels like to be put on the spot as a Christian dealing with athiests who hate Christanity. Especially if we may be weak in our faith. You know that feeling you have when non-believers or other beliefs ask why we believe so and so and we feel like we don't have an…

Hi ya, 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+) 

To complete the first book I need your help, as I am raising funds on Kickstarter. My passion is to get God's Word in full into the hands of young believer and unbelievers and comic lovers of all ages, in the hope they will come to really know God. 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 pledge to support this project...

If you are concerned about the accuracy and faithfulness to the text please read this Blog...

I want to say that I love 'Modern Christians' and enjoy your informative art works very much as well!  Though I'm sure your free time is packed with project, if you ever have some extra free time, can you look at my 'The Edge of the Flock' project at http://www.asaintjoanofmyown.com/ ? It's also a story about Christian teens, and since you have definitely put a lot of thought and seem inspired about this subject, I'd love your critique and comments.

Happy belated b-day! Also, I'm currently interviewing Christians who are involved in comics. Feel free to check out some of the interviews I've posted to my blog so far, and let me know if you're interested in being interviewed. If so, you can e-mail me at rsquaredcomicz@gmail.com with "Interview Information" as the subject. Take care and congrats on the progression of your comic!

Dude, I just want to say I really like your comic. I like to see the way its growing artistically and i pray you continue to have characters who really shine a Christ-like light while still showing the struggles of human beings.

I pray the Lord blesses and even writes into your story.

 

So yea, i like it allot. thats a good summation...nuff said lol

Hey! Just started reading your comics :) I'm really liking it! Can't wait til I see more of them, keep up the good work! God Bless!

David, in your last comic you said you were going to update more now that you're on break, but we have seen nothing. What's going on?
At 12:49pm on August 20, 2010, Alex F said…
It looks like you are doing some pretty important work. Being candid about controversial topics between Christians and non-Christians is pretty important. I have been plugging away at the same comic for nearly 3 yrs and have a similar goal of bridging the gap of understanding. Currently nothing is posted on-line, but hopefully I will soon have something for all to see.
