My name is Will Boyer. As a child, I thought I was a Christian, but as a 14-year-old I realized I had never repented of my sins. I asked God to forgive me. At the age of 17, I heard God's voice command me to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Coupled with my passion to be a cartoonist, I am creating Christian comics. My secular comics can be found at www.MiloComics.com and at www.EmpireComicsLab.com.

Creator's Commentary:

I conceived this in 2014. Today I think I would have instead written Gospelman as preaching against spreading the Gospel by means of defacing public property, but back then I just thought this was humorous and cute. :-) Maybe I'll have a Gospelman Adventures story in which I use this one time gag as a means of Gospelman reaching a graffiti artist or teaching a Christian that defacing public property in the name of Christ is wrong with Gospelman himself showing repentance over doing this. I've been writing Gospelman as a Golden Age superhero who isn't allowed to do anything wrong as he needs to be a good role model, but I realize lately that I need to show him humbling himself and repenting if he is to be a role model for Christians at all. But I am uncomfortable with marring the character's reputation or image among readers. Maybe using this graffiti comic strip canonically for a later Adventure story is one way I could do this without going too far out of my current comfort zone.

Hey, Gospel-Chums!

This is one of my favorites from the strip series, so far.

I was experimenting with the laundry basket's cross-hatching or etc design, as seen in other comics. Halfway through I realized I was doing it wrong, ha. But I think it still looks good. It's not too noticeable. I don't like the perspective or angle or etc of the washing machines, I admit, as they look slanted. But it's older work of mine and I'm always aiming to improve.

Okay, admittingly, this one is more of a joke than anything else. I mean that in the positive “ha ha” punchline kind of way, but the artwork isn't the best. The confused and annoyed man - let's call him the Egon Spengler of the Gospelman world, although he isn't - is a saving grace for me. His character design was very enjoyable. So was the pier dock and Gospelman's torso, but unfortunately those got cut out of the round bubble-shaped panel…



This gag hopefully does slightly well to make people laugh. As always, the more light hearted side of my Gospelman comics isn't too heavy on doctrine, but is supposed to make people laugh, as well as maybe get them thinking. I hope that if you're a Christian, reader, that you take time to be a “fisher of people” by telling them how much God loves them and what Christ did for them on the cross - but, please, just don't use fish hooks. ;-)

Here's the original Author Comment from http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Gospelman/5259942/ :

____________________________________________

Here we see the Gospelman character's design still coming into its own. I think his eyes here are closer to how I want them.

Today's Gospelman is a comic strip and is a part of the “Everyone” rated Gospelman. It is not solely for younger readers nor is it directed only toward mature audiences.

When commenting, due to the controversial feelings and thoughts that politics and religion often bring up, remember to always comment in a mature and professional way. Thank you.

Today's comment:

Yeah, in the 6 years since I drew the above comic, I redesigned the character. Originally Gospelman was more of a soft, humorous comic strip character, but later I redesigned him to look more like a superhero for the Adventure series. It was so difficult for me to choose to not use the original design I was trying to accomplish (I have forgotten what it looks like now), that at one point I had decided to use that design for the comic strip and the more muscular version for the Adventure series. The latest comic strip, which I am in the coloring process for, abandons alternate designs for the sake of one, consistent official design. As it should be. Speaking of which, I now hate how I drew Gospelman in the above comic strip. Just doesn't look right - the head, I mean. The first two look better than this one, to be honest.

And I probably wrote that whole comment warning thing due to paranoia, although in 2010 there were some negative comments against the Christian message the comic espouses, for sure.

More to come!


P.S. - The Gospelman comic strips, despite being given their own book collections one day, will be used as filler material in the Gospelman Adventures printed series. That being the case, please feel free to send all of your fan mail and fan art to GospelmanMinistries@Gmail.com! Thanks, guys!
