Q: How did you become interested in creating a comic book?
I am been collecting comic books for over 30 years. I love superheroes, and I love biblical prophecy. SO I thought why not take the two and create a fun story.
Q: What is your involvement with this comic book? Do you write or/and draw the pictures too?
I am the writer and crafter of the Tribulation Taskforce universe. I can't draw to save my life, so I leave that to others!
Q: What is the Tribulation Taskforce about? Is this one book or a series of books?
The soon to come world dictator is on a mission to bring forth the last days before the appointed time. Under a platform of world peace, he uses his position in the United Nations to assemble a team of Super powered warriors to help him achieve his true goal, the destruction of mankind. The hero GROK, along with The Apostle John (who is still alive), search out the globe's greatest heroes to combat the oncoming threat. Together they will assemble the greatest Superhero force the world has ever seen. They are THE TRIBULATION TASKFORCE!
The story is told through 3 comic book series: The Tribulation Taskforce, our main team book. Parables, which tells origin and solo stories of our characters. And lastly, Secret Files, which gives character profiles, prose entries and short stories.
Q: Who are some of the major characters?
Our main character is The Apostle. He is the apostle John, who is still living. The ideas was from John 21:22 Jesus said,"If I want [John] to remain alive until I return, what is that to you. In this world, he was captured and held captive in Vatican City. The team's first mission is to rescue him!
Q: How does this comic book help us as Christians in our walk with the Lord?
