PARABLE! a comic anthology

I've been asked to contribute to a comic anthology called "Parable". It's going to be a Christian world view comic so it may not be for everyone, but it's one that I'm looking forward to seeing completed. They are trying to go for a "FLIGHT" feel and the linup of creators is quite interesting. Very indy feeling (except me), but in a good way! (You know what I mean by that, you know you do...they can draw!) Check out the bios of some of the folks involved and go to their websites: http://www.parablecomic.com/creator-bios/.

I'm trying to squeeze in time to do a 8 page story for it. I'm excited about it because my pally Rob Corley wrote the story and I'm illustrating it. We've never done that before since we are both artists and when I've done comics in the past, they were stories I wrote. It's a story that has a lot of fun to it and has a good message too. I'm hoping to post some of the development of the pages as I do them, but not enough to give away the story too much. (I want you all to buy this thing when it comes out!) More soon.

Can't wait, Tom! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Is using religious teachings to deny equal rights to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people any less wrong than using religious teaching to discriminate against people of color, against equality for women or against people of different cultures wanting to marry?

History has a way of imparting simple truths.

Religion-based bigotry — let's end it now and forever.

OOps! "passiongreek", you forgot to use your fake "accent" above. AND you didn't do your online translation trick on the post before that! Shame, shame. Come on guys, if you're gonna use false names and fake languages, at least be consistant! While you're at it, go bother someone that WANTS to debate you.

Will there be any talking veggies or "superheros"? Or does it have enough fiction?
