Eye Witness Becomes a Finalist

This is good news for Robert Luedke. The writer/artist’s latest book in the Eye Witness series continues to receive attention. The interesting books present an intriguing combination of modern archaeological adventures while gazing at the beginnings of Christianity. I met Robert at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con and interviewed him here. Well done Robert!
