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...
I want to say that I love 'Modern Christians' and enjoy your informative art works very much as well! Though I'm sure your free time is packed with project, if you ever have some extra free time, can you look at my 'The Edge of the Flock' project at http://www.asaintjoanofmyown.com/ ? It's also a story about Christian teens, and since you have definitely put a lot of thought and seem inspired about this subject, I'd love your critique and comments.
Happy belated b-day! Also, I'm currently interviewing Christians who are involved in comics. Feel free to check out some of the interviews I've posted to my blog so far, and let me know if you're interested in being interviewed. If so, you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Interview Information" as the subject. Take care and congrats on the progression of your comic!
Dude, I just want to say I really like your comic. I like to see the way its growing artistically and i pray you continue to have characters who really shine a Christ-like light while still showing the struggles of human beings.
I pray the Lord blesses and even writes into your story.
So yea, i like it allot. thats a good summation...nuff said lol
It looks like you are doing some pretty important work. Being candid about controversial topics between Christians and non-Christians is pretty important. I have been plugging away at the same comic for nearly 3 yrs and have a similar goal of bridging the gap of understanding. Currently nothing is posted on-line, but hopefully I will soon have something for all to see.
I just heard about "Modern Christians" and I really like the idea! I've started reading chapter 3. Good stuff! I see a lot of possibilities with your "real, everyday" approach to the Christian walk. Take care and I pray for all the best!
Hey David, once again the rest of your story has been great and inspiring. Showing how lustful we can be and how we are quick to idolize others (especially concerning relationships). BUT you don't leave it there; you show the redemptive message of the scriptures. I, and I'm sure many others, can personally attests to the things that mike goes through. I'm sure you were inspired by similar experiences in your life. But to see Him use scripture and seek God in the midst of a battle in his mind is awesome. Bro it talked to me, and reminded me of a struggle that use to be big in my life. Though the Lord has decimated my passionate lust in my life, there are still remnant spiritual battles and struggles with the flesh every now and then.
Anyways man, its a great story and Im glad to read it. It'll be cool to see a compilation book, one day. Your work inspires me as well brother.
May God continue to bless your work for His glory.
Hey David, just wanted to say how great the modern Christians comic on lust was. Continue to do great things in the Lord. The comic blessed me, seeing a great comic with an important Christian message, and was funny at the same time, and I am sure it will do the same for others.
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."
