Website:

Area(s) of Interest or Expertise:
My professional career includes comic book editing, writing, lettering & typography, as well as extensive work as a digital prepress production artist in the print industry. My educational background includes a focus on Christian apologetics and philosophy. My "fan" interests include Silver Age superhero comics, Japanese giant monster films, mythology & folklore, and the works of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I was baptised into a Lutheran church as an infant, raised in a Quaker church. Began to take my faith more seriously as a teenager, spent my high school and college years attending a non-denominational Evangelical church. Participated in the certificate program of Christian apologetics at the former Simon Greenleaf University (now part of Trinity International). Later, while in college, attended a small Southern Baptist congregation where I met my future wife, and am currently attending a local congregational church. My spiritual journey has taken me in and out of various degrees of social activism, political conservatism, emotionalism, intellectualism, Arminianism, Calvinism -- but through it all, what matters is not what my own personal struggles or interests may be at any given moment, but the love and mercy of Jesus Christ at work in me.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
My ideal would be to have the time and resources to devote full-time as writer and self-publisher of my own various comic book series. If the question is about playing with someone else's toys, my dream job would be a scriptwriter for DC's "Legion of Super-Heroes".
Favorite Comic Creators:
The raw imagination of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. The script pacing and interwoven subplots of Paul Levitz's Legion Of Superheroes. The characterization and worldbuilding of Kurt Busiek's "Astro City". Artwise, I like a wide range of styles; as a visual storyteller, I'm fond of the rock solid consistency of Curt Swan, the detailed draftsmanship of George Perez, and the panel layouts of John Byrne.

Prayers and encouragement for a friend

Posted on January 20, 2014 at 2:30pm 10 Comments

Hi everyone. "Real life" has been keeping me away from online participation for awhile, but I wanted to pass this along for a friend.

As some of you may already have heard: Don Ensign, the founder of the Christian Comic Arts Society, is in the hospital due to complications from prostate cancer.

Our mutual friend, Ralph Miley, is planning to possibly travel to visit Don later in February, and had an idea for a gift that might encourage him. We're trying to create a sketchbook…

Phoenix Comicon 2011 - Full Report

Posted on June 6, 2011 at 12:00pm 5 Comments

Well, it's taken me a week to sort through my thoughts, but here's a more detailed convention report on the Phoenix Comicon over Memorial Day weekend. (My apologies for the relative lack of pictures -- I'm very much an introvert when it comes to asking total strangers for the picture, despite how cool their costumes might…

Phoenix Comicon 2011 - CCAS interview

Posted on June 3, 2011 at 11:42am 0 Comments

More updates from last weekend's show... While we were wrapping up at the Con, a comic book news website asked to interview us about the CCAS and New Creation Now. Ralph handled the interview while Don and I continued to work the table (there was a surprising crowd of people visiting us right before the show closed.)

 

 

I find it amusing that we…

Phoenix Con 2011

Posted on May 30, 2011 at 11:00am 0 Comments

Well, I'm back from my very first visit to the Phoenix Comicon. I'll have to wait a couple days to collect my thoughts before I can post a full convention report -- four days of insufficient sleep have left my memories a little jumbled. But it was a fun convention, I had a wonderful time hosting the CCAS booth, and we had great opportunities for fellowship with the many other Christians in attendance at the show. (And if any of you are signing up for the CCAS social network as a…

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 was cut off that last post.  I digress.  I would like to discuss an opportunity to be a member of the group and hope to hear from you and yours.  Thank you so much.

Hello Kevin, I just noticed the note on the side of the last page concerning the APAzine and the shortage of contributors.  I am not sure if that is an old notice or not, but I would be highly interested and motivated to be considered.  I am new to the graphic novel collaboration process.  However, I wish to learn and be discipled as it were in collaborating in the Alpha-Omega magazine.  Also, I am ready to be an extremely creative and confindent writer in a collaboration process.  I am a published poet in several journals, both acedemic and public, as well as a number of newspapers.  I served as the art editor for Envoi Lit. Mag. from Ohio University Southern, and have had five years as an Studio Art Major and an English minor (I'm taking a year off before finishing my degree).  I am a late in life return to school guy and have been actively writing, or working in publishing or retail as a lay minister.  I worked to build a church in LasVegas, and my wife and I, while still in the singles ministry, moved to San Diego from Phoenix, AZ to help reconstruct a singles ministry there.  This all happened in the nineties.  In 2000 I became extremely ill, and have spent the last eleven years sorting out my faith, health, and relationships.  I was in a medicated coma for 17 weeks in 2000, with a total of 5 months in the Hospital.  Severe damage was done to my body during that time, and my health is still extremely poor.  I was working in customer service at McGraw-Hill publishing when I became sick.  It has been extremely humbling and a gift from God.  I am currently now retired from MacGraw-Hill and receive a little SSD monthly.  SO I have had time on my hands, and I have been writing.  Mostly Poetry and Creative Idea storming.  My mind is constantly filled with creativity, more so than before the incident, and it overflows to the point that I carry several little notebooks  around with me, and my Ipod and Laptop, just so I can record everything.

Hello Kevin,

Thanks for the reply. That's great that there's a volume #2 in the works. I'm not sure how far long you guys are, or when you plan on setting a production schedule, but let me know if you guys are taking other contributors. I would be interested in collaborating with someone on a short story script.

 

Take care and have a blessed day!

Hello Kevin,

I just read the first chapter of Ragged Capes, and I'm already hooked! I really like the focus on the characters and their humanity, and the overall concept behind the book. I want another volume, lol...

HI Kevin,

Happy Thanksgiving! I didn't want to leave you out, soooo.... 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. :)

We watched Gammera last night. Thanks!

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."

Talk to you soon
