"Stan Lee once said in an interview that you should write stories for yourself...stories that interest you. Some people will like it, and some won't; but at least you know that there are people out there that like what you like. And as far as…"
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
Hello everyone, I am excited to be apart of this community! I have been searching far and wide for others who share my passion for Comics and desire to use this medium to glorify the Kingdom. I gave my life to Christ sincerely in 1999 in Wiesbaden Germany 🇩🇪 while deployed there in my previous life as a Military Policeman 👮🏿. Father has taken me on a wonderful journey to where I am now a National Guard Chaplain and assistant pastor to my home church here in Clarksville.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
Since I currently write and illustrate (using 3D software because I couldn't draw a stick figure to save my life 😄) my own comics...I desire to continue perfecting those crafts and also be apart of the process of seeing my comics get put into production...so either directing or producing.
Favorite Comic Creators:
Stan "THE MAN" Lee, Joss Whedon, Frank Miller and believe it or not, Alan Moore.
WOW is RIGHT!!! I know the area! As kids we went ALL OVER the place just looking for things to do. But then the Comic Book Bug bit us and we locked away in my Mother's basement to learn and draw! I was on East 93rd Street between Kings Highway and Wilmore Ave. I still have friends in my old neighborhood that i visit from time to time. I would love to keep in touch God bless you for your calling from the Lord!! What a ministry!!! And the covers look GREAT!!! I see you are using CGI to create the covers. Is that also on the inside?? Very current and relatable to the audience... or I should say HARVEST you have been called to! I would love to keep in touch and learn more about what you are doing. What a blessing. Keep up the God Work! Amen!
Hello, Greg! I, too, was raised in Brooklyn! East Flatbush to be exact. Now living in Queens, NY! Can't leave NYC as I am led to minister and teach here as well as continue the work of Sesame Street which is headquartered here. God bless you!
Welcome to the CCAS. Thank you for your service to our country. If you have samples of your work, I would encourage you to post them. May our gracious Lord and Savior richly bless you in bless you as you serve Him.
Thanks for the welcome and that's awesome about your son! I am doing the research for a comic series out of the Bible...so it will be a while before I post anything significant. I have however, just completed a secular project for the G.R.E.A.T program which I have pitched to the directors. It is a comic book about encouraging kids to avoid gangs and violence. I am a police officer in my city and teach the course to 5th graders...and thought it would be cool to create a comic book that compliments the goals of the organization. Perhaps, I will post it as a PDF for feedback purposes, for it is my first and only comic book currently.
