Why Christian Comics?

Understanding the power of COMICS as a Visual Storytelling medium can be a challenge in countries such as the USA where the biggest selling comic book title moves only around a million copies a year.

It is much more obvious in places such as:

Reading manga on train in Japan

--- JAPAN, where the top title Shonen Jump sells over 3 million copies every single week and a staggering 2.1 billion comics total are sold every year...

---- KOREA, where 7,000 new comic book titles appear every year and 25 million volumes are published...

---- THAILAND, where the top 2 comics, Kai Hua Roh and Mahasanook, together sell over 8 million copies a month...

---- MEXICO, where the most well-known and successful comic, El Libro Vaquero, has a circulation of 3.2 million copies monthly...

---- FRANCE, where graphic novel albums featuring the popular cartoon character Astérix le Gaulois have sold approximately 200 million volumes...

---- The MIDDLE EAST and NORTHERN AFRICA, where the successful pan-Arab comic strip magazine Majid has a certified weekly circulation of 150,000 to 175,000 copies and is sold in almost every Arab state.

INDIA ... PHILIPPINES ... NORWAY ... INDONESIA ... BRAZIL ... ARGENTINA ... the international examples go on and on.

In fact, this visual medium is the world’s most widely-read form of popular literature.

Comics are excellent communication tools. People around the world already read them. They adapt to fit specific people groups. They are the #1 reading choice in the hard-to-reach 10/40 Window.

Comics are a natural for bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to children and adults across the globe!

So that is the answer to "Why Christian Comics?"
