CCAS and Zondervan, a division of HarperCollins Christian Publishing, will be selling signed copies of The Book of Revelation, a graphic novel currently ranked #1 on Amazon Best Sellers list for Religious Arts and Photography.

CCAS and Zondervan will also be distributing samplers and signed posters for the first installment of the exciting new graphic novel series Last Adam:  Firstborn.  Set to release this fall, Firstborn is a beginning, an origin story, the remarkable starting point for a remarkable life.  This first adventure in The Last Adam graphic novel series illustrates the story of Jesus' birth and early life in terms of a grand and sweeping family saga, powered by acts of sacrifice, villainy and heroism.

HOLLYWOOD JESUS Comics Editor Arnaldo Reyes will provide live coverage for and the Christian Comic Arts Society throughout Comic-Con via @ChristianComics on Twitter and at

"Comic-Con is the Super Bowl of Pop-Culture! From comics to movies to TV and even gaming, you can find it all, and since we love Pop-Culture, the goal is to bring everyone a little of everything at," says Reyes.  If you've got a special angle for HJ's "Pop-Culture from a Spiritual Point of View," connect with Reyes at Comic-Con. From Wonder Woman to Ghost Rider to Gladstone's School for World Conquerors, covers it all. Hollywood Jesus is part of the FrontGate Christian Web Network.  HJ's latest comic reviews can be found at

Miabu - we do about 7 cons per year currently.  Reach out to Leslie Ezeh here on the CCAS site. She'll connect about potential volunteer opps in the future. We can ALWAYS use more help.
