The Word still must be preserved word by word, phrase by phrase. But reduce the disturbing visions, despite it's described in the bible

I don't support it. I don't drawing a biblical story in comics or animation will move the teens of this age. Unless it's compromised to their preferances.

The works are pretty subtle and some are modern or abstract.

As my sponsor's till doing the comic research.
There's a small debate on how the comic is going to be published.

Here's the crucial points:
1) As this biblical comic may be a pioneering version in Asia, though I knew its common in the west already.
2) Asian has a more traditional mindset readers.
3) As a visual version of the Word in Asia is as rare as pandas in China. Loyalty to the Word is more important than the creativity of the script. For example, draw the comic as close to the historical settling and reality of that time than making a futurstic version of it as it can be done in the west as there's many versions been laid.
4) As like pandas as an endangered species, biblical comics in Asia are the same too. As I may not who when the Lord will rise up another artist to do such stuff in Asia, esp to China, Jap, HOngKong and Korea. So it may be the first and also the last. So the version is very crucial.


My sponsor;Robin wanted the approach to be more humorous and dramatic. He feared that if it's too serious, the sale of the books may drop as a comic telling church history maybe dry.

But this upset me. Out in asia, there's comics telling the history on buddhism and taoism and yet the sales good. I don't see it this as a big problem.

What I'm concerned more is this two words "Pioneering version". It would be sad that the first version is too compromising;(humorous and toned down). I agreed with the dramatic part but not the humorous part.

I saw before futuristic versions of biblical or Christian comics in the west. I believe that can't be done in Asia yet when not even a version that's 100% loyal to the bible is published.

Robin had saw my first 5 espisodes. It was bluff, very direct, 100% loyal to history and the Word. The gore scenes like the stoning of Stephen and the worms eating King Herod. I drew exactly what the Word says without compromising whether is it too gory. My motto, "Drawing the truth comes first always. As there may not be a second version."

As this debate between me and Robin will greatly determine the outcome on how the comic is going to be out.

After reading this, please post ya views as I may gather them together to submit it to my sponsor, Robin. Please help me my indicating ya age too. As ya age plus comment will be crucial for the market research too. Thx lots.

And thx for all the prayers too.
