About Us

The Christian Comics International (CCI) website was created and launched by Nate Butler in 1996, when Christian Comics & Games Magazine (CC&G) ceased publication.

CCI was the first and most complete site of its kind on the Internet.

Previously, Nate had also launched the Christian Comics Catalog (CCC) in 1993.

Nate's original goal was to find ways to use comics to spread the Gospel, so in 1996 he also co-founded the training ministry, COMIX35 (ROX35 Media, Inc).

For over 20 years The Lord used COMIX35 to teach Christians around the world to create their own evangelistic stories and messages, in their own languages, as part of an evangelism strategy and/or discipleship program for their own people.

COMIX35 also administered the CCI and CCC websites during those years by special arrangement with Nate Butler. During that time the CCI site, particularly the Pioneers pages, was greatly expanded through the diligent research of Alec Stevens.

Nate is retiring from COMIX35 at the end of 2019, but his commitment to the "visual storytelling" media of comics remains. He has resumed control of the CCI and CCC websites.

Lord willing, Nate hopes to expand on sections that he has not had time to develop before.
