My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
Long of short, in my teens and early twenties, I lived for myself and how high I could get. Living to get wasted filled me with self hate, hate for people and hate for God. Then the Father started softening my heart and start the conversion processes. Then I found a strong church and converted into Christianity. That was in 1989. Since then I have been studying the bible almost daily and drowned myself in theology and doctrine studies, while learning the extreme value of humility, love, and extreme mercy.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
Writer, editor, artist. I have no pro. experience in comics, but I am a published poet, writer, and artist. I studied studio art at Ohio University as well as a great deal of practice and art classes in High School.years ago. I worked as the Art Editor for Envoi magazine.
Favorite Comic Creators:
Will Eisner, Jack Kirby, John Buscema, Sal Buscema, John Romita, Gil Kane, John Byrne, Chris Clairmont, Joe Kurbert and his two sons, Bill Sienkiewievz (sp?), Kurt Swan, Neal Adams, early Frank Miller, Jim Lee, Alan Moore, Scott Allie, Mario Guevara, Jo Ladronn, Jerry Ordway, Sergio Aragones, Bernie Wrightson, John Romita jr., Alex Ross, Mike Mignola, and many more.

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...
Comic writers send in a few pages of their script and an editor looks over it and gives feedback for all to see. The person who gives the feedback also looked at a few pages of one my scripts a few months back (not via the website though), and his feedback was very helpful. I'm praying all goes will with the development of your projects, and any way I could help/support let me know.
thanks for touching base, Paul. I appreciate and give you kudo's for having the courage to reclaim your life...no matter at what age. God Bless ya! I look forward to seeing what you have to say (in graphic novel form). Feel free to call on me if I can answer any questions for you going forward.
