Kickstarter Backer Rewards Soon!
You will see below that we are very close to completing the Gospel of Mark, in July we will be sending out the first copies for the Kickstarter backs as well as the remaining digital PDF instalments. I've sent out the surveys so if you're a backer you'll need to input your address.
At Events this Summer!
This summer I will be at lots of events. In just 10 days I'll be at in a field near Swindon 'The Gathering' for Christian menfolk. Then in the school holiday's, we will be at New Wine: United Week 2, and Commission's 'Together at Westpoint'. If you will be at these events please come and say hi, and drag your friends, church and family over to the new stand.
Have Your Say: Extra Pages at the Back?
In the comic of The book of Judges and Ruth, I included extra pages with notes and sketches on character designs and some historical elements (like we discuss here). I didn't include any in Joshua and wasn't planning to in Mark, but some people have said they really liked these pages, they also add a certain amount of proof regarding the research involved. However, they cost more money to include and I imagine many people won't even read them.
One alternative idea is to have one page to show the sort of thing and give a link to an online version for people who are interested. The advantage of this is you can potentially link them to buy other books, sign up to the newsletter etc.
The Gospel of Mark is 164 pages, including just the comic and intro pages. The price will be £14.99. If I add pages there will be 16 pages of sketches and go up to 180 pages.
In the comments below, I've included a few pages from the Judges sketchbook.
Please add your opinion on the poll at
Progress and Prayer
I didn't add a progress report last month due to all the boring GDPR stuff, but in the intervening time, we've covered a lot of ground. I have 8 pages of the comic to draw and 144 are complete. We are working our way through checking for errors and then it will be a case of finishing off the few pages that surround the comic (intro etc).
Please pray that we finish the book in good time and there are no errors in the printing. Please pray that the Gospel of Mark will get a lot of media attention at its launch and that many people will ultimately read the Good News for the first time through these graphic novels.
