We have some exciting news! CCAS has moved to a new and improved version of our platform. Not only is it more powerful and better organized, it is completely responsive (looks great on all devices).
ATTN: MEMBERS WHO JOINED AFTER AUGUST 22, 2019
The only issue we are experiencing with this move:
Members who joined after August 22, 2019 WILL NEED TO RE-ENTER THEIR PROFILE QUESTION, ANSWERS. Please accept our sincere apologies for this inconvenience.
We have added a new Profile Question: "Which Category best describes you?"
Categories: Amateur Artist, Professional Artist, Amateur Writer, Professional Writer, Independent Self-Publisher, Traditional Publisher, and Fan.
Please edit your Profile, and select your chosen category. By choosing the category that best describes you, will enable you to add content to the appropriate new modules:
1. Artists: Add photos to the new Arts & Prints Photo Module.
2. Writers: Add your bio information to the new Writers List Module.
3. Publishers: Add your bio information to the new Publishers List Module.

Happy New Year Angelo!
It's always good to make new friends.

Thank you for your encouragement and invitation to help. I've got a splash page I've been struggling with forever (seems like). The story is about Captain Miracle dealing with the lies of Halloween which lead a young Christian into the hands of satan worshippers. I've done at least half a dozen variations and just can't seem to get it right. Need to emphasize the presence of the devil (his druids) as they're about to grab the 3 kids. Plus Cap Miracle enroute to rescue them.
Would greatly appreciate any help.
I'll post a scan on my page.
You're right on with your response! Please be patient, as I haven't taken time to look through all the postings and material here.
In the spirit of practicing and improving our skills, let's ask our brothers and sisters who are writers to form a new discussion and post scripts for others to download and layout. Then more experienced folks can give feedback, tips, whatever.
As there is so much work involved in creating finish comic books, we should all take advantage of others abilities and work together to produce finished comic stories to post on this website.
Blessings to all
I can only speak for myself, and I am guilty as charged. I've allowed so much "stuff" to distract from keeping online fellowship with everyone. As we know nothing happens randomly or thru chance, we should try to think of our membership with CCAS as fellowship, or in some cases, ministry! We have been called here (and thank Jesus for those who founded and maintain this site) by Jesus himself and need to not forsake the assembling of ourselves together... even cyber-assembling!
The secular comic book world is a mess. You're right that we have an opportunity to use the medium to Glorify our Lord & Savior Jesus, as well as teach and encourage our brothers and sisters!
I'm with you Angelo... keep kicking and nudging!
Welcome aboard! I'm Scott A. Shuford, one of the new CCAS Board members. I wanted to stop in and say thanks for being involved with CCAS!
I did see your tech note come through. Geoff is the one who will address it. I'm not sure of his timing but you should hear something in the next few days.
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.
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.
Can you post or join in a forum discussion topic, post your own blog entry or upload your art or video now? :)
At Your Service,
Scott A. Shuford
CCAS Board Member 2008-2010
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."
