Calvary Comics' "Hosanna in the Highest"- my impressions

“Hosanna in the Highest” by Calvary Comics

My impressions (spoiler free)

 

This 80 page black and white book primarily covers the lives of various notable historical Christians. Some are missionaries, others authors and poets, and some are prophets. The art is very good. Books like this are of great value, because they give the reader a sense of the continuity of the Church throughout so many ages and lifetimes. Almost everyone is familiar with the Biblical Church…

Pearl Before Time: Journey Through the Magical Sundial

The genre of this series is bible based fantasy. The setting takes place in the spirit world. Though this comic book is cool happy and interesting (in contrast to the gritty real life TV Show), the tv series version is not for the faint of heart. I challenge you to eat meat instead of drinking milk. Never mind the industry called American Protestantism.

Picture the plot as Superbook (1999), with a mix of Pilgrim's Progress, Odysseus and Narnia sandwiched together.

A…

Atomic Robo Webcomic

Atomic Robo Webcomic  http://www.atomic-robo.com/index.php?id=13

Scott Wegener and Brian Clevinger started creating Atomic Robo back in 2007. The comic has great writing and deep character development with a creative Fifties flavor. But for me this is really a go-to comic when I want to draw action figures. It’s tough to describe the art style…chiseled?...but it is so much easier to study action poses on Atomic…

Designing a GospelTract

In 2006 illustrator Cedric Hohnstadt created the Gospel tract, "Are you a good person?" based on a presentation by evangelist Ray Comfort.  The design is colorful, eye catching; and the economy of words and line are a thing of beauty.  The site found here: https://www.freecartoontract.com/  ; also demonstrates tracts as a cheap way to get your…

The Streamer

So in the past few months, I've learned about certain types of people and wondered if I can make a Christian themed comic of someone in a similar situation.

The comic would be loosely based on one (or a few) of these infamous internet stars who streams video games for a living. But he's really bad at them. He's kind of a loser. He refuses to get a real job and makes excuses such as " I make more money doing this than working a part time job!" He always asks for tips and scams viewers.…

Spiritman Daily Dose 345

Martin is looking right at a figure emerging from the fog. Still he does not know what he is seeing. Will you know when you see it?
 
"but how he now sees, we don’t know; or who opened his eyes, we don’t know. He is of age. Ask him. He will speak for himself." John 9:21 WMB…

Visually Engaging Comics

Our comics need to be more “Visually engaging,” right?   Cute, horrific, epic, bizarre are like spices that hold your reader page after page. Color helps but plenty of engaging comics are holding their viewers without it. For example:

1) I am not a big fan of “cute” but Robin Dassen’s Twin Dragons, is holding my interest with school-age antics of a pair of young anthro Dragons. Robin does ‘cute’ so well that she mocks it in this 9/9/19 strip:…

THE SWORD OF EDEN proofs...

Today, I got the proof for from the printer. There are some minor concerns.... some smudging on the back cover and some kinda light-looking interior pages. Hopefully, those concerns can be addressed.

A figure emerges from the fog... in Martin's bedroom... weird.

They are seeing something in the fog but what are you seeing?

Spiritman shoots first... but an unexpected force bubble stops his arrow. Where did that come from?

Spiritman Daily Dose 341

The spiritual battle that has been raging simultaneously with the conversation in Martin's room has been revealed. Now Cameron sees something new. What is it?
 
"but I see a different law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity under the law of sin which is in my members. What a wretched…

Spiritman Daily Dose 340

Spiritman reaches for his bow and quiver. Got to get them out before the demon can loose an arrow.

"You uncovered your bow. You called for your sworn arrows.

Selah.

You split the earth with rivers. The mountains saw you, and were afraid. The storm of waters passed by. The deep roared and lifted up its hands on high." Habakkuk 3:9-10 WMB

Digital Art programs for the Non-professional cartoonist 2019

   A decade ago I got Photoshop Elements for about $68, and started using it to clean-up, edit and color my toons. Most of what you see on my CCAS gallery is done with a mouse, although pieces done within the last two years are assisted by a Wacom drawing pad ($240). Easy to use and focused I what I wanted to do, these programs gave me multiple years of making multi-layer toon art, and for the hobby artist on a shoestring budget these are still great art tools. Today Photoshop Elements 2019…
