I am a comic book creator, writer, editor, and publisher with work published by DC Comics, Image, IDW, etc. I have been nominated for a Harvey Award (lost to 'Perry Bible Fellowship') and an Eagle Award (lost to Alan Moore). But, hey--how cool is that? I am also the Founder and President of Hocus Pocus Comics.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I grew up as the son of a pastor and was called to preach the Gospel at a young age. I rebelled and spent nearly 14 years in the Army; I was a nominal Christian during that time. After my wife left me, I was a single father of 3 sons, and I was at the end of my rope. It was during that time that I rededicated my life to Christ, and became an ordained minister. I am now married to a beautiful Spirit-filled lady named Rebecca who truly is a Godsend to both me and my three sons. God is so good!
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
I'm doing it, baby.
Favorite Comic Creators:
Alan Moore, Len Wein, Christopher Priest, Frank Miller, Walt Simonson, Chris Claremont, Paul Smith, J. Michael Straczynsk, Steve Rude
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...
