Webcomic description

A multiracial family tries to come back together after a painful divorce and six years of separation. This is a Christian webcomic that doesn't beat you over the head with its message.



My name is Allen Steadham and I've been a comic creator since 1980. I have previously co-written and drawn Due East, the award-winning Best Spiritual Comic (2008) and finalist for Most Profound Comic (2008). I have been happily interracially married since 1995 and we have three kids.

I am a nondenominational Christian, as is my wife. We have been in a Christian band together since 1997. I play electric bass guitar and sing. My wife sings and plays viola and violin.

I also write Christian fiction novels. I released a superhero thriller novel Mindfire on April 19, 2019 through my publisher, Ambassador International. My second novel, a science-fantasy called Jordan's World, was released July 1, 2019. The next book in that series is called Jordan's Arrow and was released February 7, 2020. The final book in the trilogy is Jordan's Deliverance and it was released October 20, 2020. As of August 2021, I have a short story "The Fate of Transport 80-14" published in the Christian science fiction anthology Into The Unknown: Seven Tales of Faith and Bravery.

The Former Things was just published by Ambassador International on July 12, 2022. It is a Christian fiction story told from the perspective of an atheist.

It's a good beginning. I wish it was.longer
Interesting concept. There's a story in there--I can tell! :)
Yay! And yes, they do, don't they? :)
Hooray for unlikely families! <3

The shopkeepers in this town have EXCELLENT taste in business names.
Here it is, the last page of Book 4! We wanted to end this story on a positive note, while still not leaving out that Crystal will not be happy about her daughter's conversion. We'll come back to that.
