Comics for the King
(September 6, 2011)
Kingstone Comics is making a big splash publishing faith-based comic books and graphic novels. “We’re moving to a post-Christian society,” laments Kingstone CEO Art Ayris. “We want to capture a younger audience with Biblical stories.”
Kingstone has a handful of 32-page comics telling some of the Bible’s important stories. The newest one will be Jonah, written by Art Ayris and drawn by Danny Bulanadi, who has also drawn for Marvel Comics.
Also coming soon from Kingstone are two graphic novels written by World Magazine’s Dr. Marvin Olasky: Echoes of Eden and 2048. “Echoes of Eden is really an apologetics thriller,” Ayris chuckles. “It’s like Kingstone’s answer to The Da Vinci Code.”
