Comics and Columns

There's an interesting new comics anthology called Parable percolating on the interweb. Parable is a Christian anthology, headed by Mike Maihack. (Mike has a great picture on his site of Batman playing the Ukulele!)

Other Parable contributors include (but are not limited to): Sarah Mensinga, Dean Trippe, and Matt Yokom (who has an awesome picture on his site of an insane goat).

I contributed a story of my own for the book. Mine is a 12-page tale loosely based on the life of Saint Simeon the Stylite (sometimes called "Simon"). Here's a three-page preview (you can click on the pages to see a larger version):

For the rest of the story you'll have to pick up a copy of Parable. Sooooo.... one of these days I'll let you know when it will be published!

Isn't there a brand of pen called Stylite?

Because, whenever I read this comic, I can't stop thinking of pens.

"Stylus" is a word for a pen-like tool.

I think "stylite" is literally a word for column or pillar. I'd wager that the two words, Stylus and stylite, are related.

Awesome comic!

btw Have you ever considered signing your name Bew? Because that's what I keep typing by accident. And I thought it looked cool.

Really, really great comic. Esp. the ending!
