Profile Information

Southern California
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.

The Alpha-Omega APA-Zine: More than a "paper blog"?

Posted on August 26, 2018 at 10:45pm 0 Comments

Hi! Reprinting and expanding on an earlier post, because some folks have been asking for more about the "Alpha-Omega" Christian comics APA-zine. I thought it would be easier to have the info handy in one blog post I can just directly link to...

As some of you may know, I don't post online here very often because so much of my time is…

Alpha-Omega #200: Calling All Former Members!

Posted on February 14, 2018 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

Hi! As some of you may know, I'm not posting here online that often because so much of my time is involved offline with Alpha-Omega, the Christian Comic Arts Society's long-running Christian comics APA (which stands for Amateur Press Association.) 

For those who don't know what an APA is, there's a Wikipedia article on the history of the concept. It's basically a short-run,…

Wow, I can't believe it's been a few years since I last updated my account here. Just wanted to log in and say hi, and let you know that I'll have some project updates to share soon.

For those who were wondering, no, I didn't drop off the face of the Earth. I've just been busy with my day job and various family duties, as well as working offline on several Christian comic projects, such as books like …

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...

PS - Please add me as a friend here on CCAS

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!

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."
