From Nate Butler - Since 1996, COMIX35 has been holding Christian comics seminars and consultation around the world. During that time the ministry has uncovered a wide variety of Christian-themed comics, tracts, and graphic novels. A number of them have been gifts from the creators or publishers, while some were found unexpectedly in backstreet book shops. Together they provide an expansive view into the flourishing state of Christian comics publishing internationally.
