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.

Welcome back, Gospel Chums!

Today's comic strip is one I drew back in 2015 but due to health and time reasons, etc, have not been able to color and upload until now. Yes, yes, I know it's not New Years, but this strip is behind schedule enough as it is! Stay in your Bible, Gospel Chums, and do everything as God has commanded you, because God wants you to be victorious and He has given you a love letter that is His Word to instruct you in how to live a life free from enslavement to sin. He wants what is best for us and His commandments are against things that will hurt and destroy us. "For I know the plans I have for you"—this is the Lord’s declaration—"plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope" (Jeremiah 29:11). The enemy, Satan, is like a thief who comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. Jesus came so that we may have life and have it in abundance (John 10:10). Be serious! Be alert! Your adversary the Devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour (1 Peter 5:8). Therefore, submit to God. But resist the Devil, and he will flee from you (James 4:7). Christ said, “I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without Me." (John 15:5)! Not that we can't do anything, but I'm talking about things we do for God in His service, etc, things we can't do by ourselves, though we might try. And obeying God's laws and commands is something we can't do apart from the power of Christ's Holy Spirit that He gives us to dwell inside of us. The Holy Spirit empowers us like a battery for Christ's service! With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26). I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13). All things work together for good to them that love God and are called according to His purposes (Romans 8:28). Christ also said, "If you love Me, you will keep My commands" and "The one who has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me. And the one who loves Me will be loved by My Father. I also will love him and will reveal Myself to him" (John 14:15,21).

Welcome back, Gospel Chums!

I'm sorry that updates are far and few between. I'm honestly very busy updating the Gospelman Ministries Patreon. With that sad, we're behind on updates here! Today's comic page is the plan of salvation with a character representing Jesus. I tried to make him look olive skinned, but when it printed it became apparent that I didn't make the Jesus character's skin dark enough. I hope everyone enjoys! And remember, I'm here if anyone needs to talk. Until next time, Gospel Chums!

It's another updated comic strip, fellow Gospel Chums! Not that it's been uploaded here before, but it has been on the other Gospelman websites and used as a front cover to the Free Series Preview printed issue!

This image, more of a character pin up, was turned into one of the comic strips some time ago! It's kind of a "character bible" image for how I would continue to draw Gospelman from here on out! This design is used in the Gospelman Adventures series starting with the story, "The Cross of Grime Alley!" The art style is inspired by the art style of some superheroes featured on a children's Gospel tract - bonus points if you can find it!

What did I update? Actually, a few things, but most notably Gospelman's missing utility belt has once again been inserted in! I also moved the logo on the chest and edited it a bit. I was never satisfied with it's placement. It needed to be centered, even if that obscured the logo. As a matter of fact, I might also edit his left hand in the future, too! It wouldn't be the first time I've edited that hand, but it's still not quite right...

Hello, Gospel Chums!

Here's today's Creator Commentary! I was excited to upload this comic strip! This was originally meant to be strip #5! Originally drawn in 2011, I was waiting until I had time to correct the line art and color it. While I was at it, I took the liberty of editing Gospelman to look like his final design, pronounced chin and Gospel Utility Belt and all. I hope you like it, Gospel Chums!

While I was at it, I update several of the older strips to include the Gospel Utility Belt. If you read back in the archive, you will eventually see the updated images instead of the originals.

So, what is a "Gospel Chum," anyway? I've been saying this a lot, kind of like the official greeting on the Gospelman websites. This is inspired by Adam West era Batman's use of the phrase, "Old Chum," towards Robin. Gospelman is based somewhat on this era of Batman, the Bright Knight and not the dark, brooding knight. A chum is a friend. So, what is a Gospel chum? A Gospel chum is a fellow Gospel believer, a brother or sister in Christ! It also denotes being a fan of the Gospelman comics, much as "Ghosthead" or "Webhead" might be what you call a fan of the Ghostbusters or of Spiderman. Or of Spiderman himself, honestly! The more you know.
