    Christian Comics/Graphic Novels

    Post  Carlos Phillips on August 2nd 2017, 4:20 pm

    I'm always looking for well made and thought provoking Christian comics/graphic novels, whether they be overtly Christian themed or have more subtle messages or whether they be about biblical characters or superheroes/monsters/knights/elves etc. (preferably the latter cause I have a bunch of Bible story comics). Any recommendations? cyclops

    The image looked cool, but the link to his online comic went to "Page Not Found".

    Hmm.
    I went to his actual site (http://www.orangepeel3.com/). Looks to me like the comic might still be in progress.

    Sorry for getting your hopes up.

    That's ok. Something to look forward to. I checked the website. The artwork looks really good.

    It's mostly Bible stories and some post-apocalyptic stuff, but check out Kingstone Comics. You should be able to find them on Hoopla or Comics Plus to read for free with your library card.

    Here's the link to Comics Plus: https://library.comicsplusapp.com/

    It took me some time to get into Comics Plus because I can only read the comics on my computer, but now that I'm used to it, I've been using it a lot recently. I've read a bunch Valiant comics and some Kingstone comics. Kingstone's adaptation of the Noah story is pretty swell, and it (along with some other Kingstone books) was written by Ben Avery of the Strangers and Aliens Podcast.

    I can't speak to Hoopla because they aren't associated with my library, unfortunately. But here's their link: https://www.hoopladigital.com/

    Thanks for the links pirat

    I've enjoyed the stories/comics I've read so far by Ben Avery (and the podcast as well).
