Handmade Comics Hatchery

My wife, Denise, and I want to share this comics accelerator
opportunity with fellow CCAS members. We started a family-friendly, handmade comics
accelerator program. In total, $1,000 USD will be awarded to select
artists who release hand-drawn comics on the zeroone NFT minting and
collecting platform. Throughout this month (June 2024), we will choose
suitable applicant creators to receive $100 each. This will continue
until the entire amount is given away.

8 Steps to Apply:

1. Mint a family-friendly, handmade original comic on zeroone.art site
(which is free to join and free to mint NFTs on). This can be a
1-panel comic (such as those I often create) or multi-panel comics.

2. When minting the comic, set the Number of editions to any number
between 2 and 100.

3. Set the Personal editions number to at least 1.

4. Include in the Description at least 1 sentence about the comic.

5. For one of your tags, use the following: handmadehatchery

6. Follow joechiappetta on zeroone (otherwise the next step won't work).

7. After minting, go to Personal Settings, Reserved, and Transfer 1
edition of that NFT to the account of joechiappetta on zeroone.

8. Follow joeychips on Twitter/X and tag him in a post with your
submitted comic. That's also where winners will be announced.

Comics must be 100% hand-drawn, new work, made without any AI tools
and no tracing used.

Digital comics drawn with a stylus are acceptable, as are high quality
scans or photos of comics drawn on paper.

Theme must be family-friendly: safe and suitable for viewing by all
ages of people.

Happy comic creating!

THE SWORD OF EDEN: SHINOBI graphic novel has been listed on the Messianic Comics online store. This includes the standard cover, as well as the Trump 2024 cover...

 

http://www.messianiccomicsstore.bigcartel.com

 

Ninja Spider is back from the dead; and he wants Nemish-Man, Crusader Girl, and Super Dead to travel with him to Japan to battle the Scarred Fist Ninja Clan. Will they? And can all of our heroes be trusted?

 

The idea of dying is scary to some folks. The themes of THE SWORD OF EDEN: SHINOBI focus on death, idolatry, and seeking eternal life without the one who came to give us eternal life. Many turn to things like dead religion in hopes of salvation. They turn away from the Messiah, and by doing so, they turn to things that can’t save anyone.

 

Also, the graphic novel includes the soon-to-be-famous short story, "Dang Cabbages!"

 

Plus, THE SWORD OF EDEN: SHINOBI features the first appearance of the latest super-hero sensation... Dareduck!

 

THE SWORD OF EDEN: SHINOBI is a 100-page black-and-white trade paperback. It is a super-hero Christian graphic novel.

 

The first 100 copies of the first printing of THE SWORD OF EDEN: SHINOBI will be signed and numbered. Future reprintings will not be numbered.

 

Recommended for preteen to, and including, adult readers.

 

Also, Saturday, May 4, 2024 is Free Comic Book Day! I will be appearing at Haven for Heroes (Port Jervis, NY) comic book shop. I will have copies of THE SWORD OF EDEN: SHINOBI on hand to sell, as well as limited edition prints and original artwork.

Haven for Heroes is located at 34-36 Front St Port Jervis, NY 12771.

This will be great fun! Stop on by.

Grace and Peace.

Luke 3:15-17 (English Standard Version): 15 As the people were in expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Christ, 16 John answered them all, saying, “I baptize you with water, but he who is mightier than I is coming, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 17 His winnowing fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.”

I was interviewed by Christian Nerds Unite...

I was interviewed by Christian Nerds Unite. We discussed my self-publishing THE SWORD OF EDEN graphic novel, my career in comics and animation.

We also chatted about my college days while attending the School of Visual Arts SVA with having such teachers (and comics legends) Will Eisner, Harvey Kurtzman, Gene Colan, Irwin Hasen, and Sal Amendola.

We talked about my working in comics as an inker for publishers like Archie Comics, DC Comics, Marvel Comics, and Warp Graphics, as well as animating for Sesame Street, MTV Animation, and Nickelodeon...

My new sketch cover...

I pasted the word balloons on the sketch cover. I sprayed the cover with fixative, but that made me signature bleed a bit. If I do list this on eBay, I'll sign and personalize the blank back cover.

John 14:21 (English Standard Version): 21 Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”

 

Isaiah 53:4-5 (Complete Jewish Bible): In fact, it was our diseases he bore, our pains from which he suffered; yet we regarded him as punished, stricken and afflicted by God. But he was wounded because of our crimes, crushed because of our sins; the disciplining that makes us whole fell on him, and by his bruises we are healed.

The Spiritman Update 412

I know it's been a while since I have posted. All I can say is sometimes you just gotta make the thing. I had to focus on finishing the pencils for this issue. Read the whole book for free and order print copies at http://spiritmancomics.com
 
"Brothers, I don’t regard myself as yet having taken hold, but one thing I do: forgetting the things which are behind and stretching forward to the things which are before, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Messiah Yeshua."
