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!

Robert Luedke Interview

I met Robert at Comic-Con, where he preached at the CCAS Sunday service and did an inspiring job. My interview with the creator of the Eye Witness series of graphic novels is now up at Sight here. The EW books are unique in that they present a modern adventure tale, while similarly exploring the roots of Christianity through tales from the Bible. Great to look at, powerful and encouraging, they are a great resource for the interested Christian and/or comic book fan, with plenty of political espionage and military conspiracies thrown in for good measure.

The third book, Rise of the Apostle has just been released and looks at the life of that crazy man of God, Paul. It comes in at 96 pages, from Head Press Publishing, and is available for purchase here.
