Area(s) of Interest or Expertise:
Sequential Art/Visual Storytelling, Concept Design, Writing, Web-Design, Philosphy, Apologetics, Scripture Study
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
Raised at a non-denominational Missions organization I heard about Jesus since I was an in the cradle. I made a conscious decision to follow him at age 6. Since then I have been working to reconcile my love for art and storytelling with the beliefs I have grown up with. In my experience the Church has had poor theological support for the arts which adds difficulties to a Christian's pursuit of them. The difficulties unfortunately go away when many Church leaders genuinely desire for their artists to flourish. The hard work remains to be done in the theological arenas to truly help uncover the ways in which all the arts (not just music) gloify God.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
I'd love to work either independently on my own self-published books, or as part of a close writer/artist team that creates indie books for mainstream release.

I've also considered helping start an indie comic publishing company so we could put out books by some of these creators who aren't currently sharing the gifts and talents the Lord has given them with the world.
Favorite Comic Creators:
Will Eisner, Masamune Shirow, Travis Charest, Doug TenNapel,

Bible stories and saints assume comic book form

Posted on August 11, 2007 at 12:49pm 3 Comments

I just read about two new Bible-related comic book projects that are coming out soon. Both sound really interesting. I hope they do well.



"Dust," a series of 36-page comic books published in Grand Rapids, dramatizes scenes from the Bible.

And you can find Dust at its website:…

Open Source Judaism in Comic Book form?

Posted on August 2, 2007 at 6:00am 0 Comments

I just read a review of a comic book by Douglas Rushkoff who apparently likes to think that the old testament version (and judaism in general) should be up for collaborative re-interpretation.



You can find the review here



The book is titled Testament, a title that has been used very recently for a separate Christian publisher's anthology of Bible…

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...

HI Geoff,

Happy Thanksgiving! I didn't want to leave you out so....I'm 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 or just tell on the phone. 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.


At Your Service,

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."
