"Comics and the unfair treatment of religion"

Over the years, I’ve watched, and listened to, a number of videos and debates about religion and comics. The “Comics and the unfair treatment of religion” video by Comics by Perch is interesting and entertaining, and most importantly, it isn’t anti-Christian...
 
 
Still, I don’t know if I buy the argument that it would be difficult to believe in a God (who is the creator of all things and who saves) existing in a fictional worlds of super-beings and (as the example) Norse gods. The fictitious worlds of super-heroes are as broken and as sinful as the real world. These characters are as flawed as real people. They, too, are in need of a Savior. And He ain't Superman. He ain’t Odin.
 
I do agree with Comics by Perch that there is a bias towards Christianity in entertainment. Entertainment and modern Western culture does promote a Woke agenda. The world hates Jesus and Christianity.
This is one of the many reasons why I am doing THE SWORD OF EDEN graphic novel series: www.theswordofeden.com
 
Oh… and I enjoyed Frank Miller's HOLY TERROR.
 
1 John 2:15-17 (English Standard Version): 15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.
 
James 4:4 (English Standard Version): 4 You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

Nowadays, there are many ways a comic book creator can get his, or her, work out to their readers. I use Amazon, Christianbook[dot]com, Diamond Comic Distributors, Morningstar Christian bookstores, eBay, Big Cartel, and PayPal.

 

When purchasing THE SWORD OF EDEN graphic novel directly from me, I have found that readers prefer using Amazon:

The last couple of weeks, I’ve been talking with a few book distributors about getting THE SWORD OF EDEN in secular bookstores, as well as in more Christian bookstores. We’ll see how that turns out.

 

Comics, Sequential Art, is a powerful literary artform. It has the potential to tell important stories and ideas. It’s a wonderful medium in which to share the Gospel. Also, THE SWORD OF EDEN allows me the opportunity to create Christian comics that Christian readers can enjoy without feeling insulted or feel as if they are compromising God’s principles.

 

Here’s a splash page from THE SWORD OF EDEN: SHINOBI (including bleed art)…

Have you ever tried to hand something to someone but they wouldn't take it?

The Spiritman Update 385

Desperation is how people meet Jesus.


"Great multitudes came to him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others, and they put them down at his feet. He healed them, so that the multitude wondered when they saw the mute speaking, the injured healed, the lame walking, and the blind seeing—and they glorified the God of Israel.” Matthew 15:30-31 WMB

The Spiritman Update 384

Just to review... 2 thugs beat up Chelsea. Spiritman interrupts them. Then they follow Chelsea to Martin's house were they hand over their guns to Martin and ask to speak to "the knight". And by knight they mean Spiritman.

"Holy pistoles, Batman." Well said, Cameron.


The scribe said to him, “Truly, Rabbi, you have said well that he is one, and there is none other but he; and to love him with all the heart, with all the understanding, all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is more important than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” Mark 12:32-33 WMB

What could Scott and Everett possibly pull out of their jackets that would make Martin and his friends trust them?


"Behold, this is the man who didn’t make God his strength, but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.” Psalm 52:7 WMB

Wow! This is a nice surprise. Another nice mention of THE SWORD OF EDEN graphic novel from Dave Sim (of CEREBUS fame).
I've been a huge fan of the CEREBUS comic series since my college days at School of Visual Arts.

Wow. Chelsea seems really jaded. Understandable since Scott did use a hot dagger to inflict a painful wound on her hand.

So, we just watched Spiritman battle with demons in Martin's bedroom. Now we have 2 thugs who just showed up at Martin's house, and they don't seem to know why they are there. Can it get more weird? Probably.
