“Life of Parson”
a comic based in the humor of everyday faith
I’ve had an idea in my head for a long time. It basically goes like this: There are two things that you don’t see in PopCulture very often these days; people going to the bathroom and people going to Church. While the first I understand, the second I don’t. Faith plays a huge role in life, and I’ve particularly felt its impact on my own heart and my desire to love and do good in the world. While I don’t own a Television Studio or a Movie Production Company, I do have friends that are excellent illustrators and I absolutely love to write. In this case, I’ve partnered with my friend Mark Marianelli, of New Hampshire, who has an amazing illustration style. I’ll be doing all the writing. We love to laugh (as you may have experienced with our projects at Six AM Comics) and we are faith inspired people, so why not base a comic on the life of a good young pastor trying to do good. I think this could push against some of the faith based stereotypes I’ve encountered and explore the silliness we all experience in community in general. There is a huge chest of goodies that our pop culture doesn’t explore a whole lot these days.
For your pleasure, here is our first ‘Life of Parson’ Comic (Click Comic to Enlarge):
I hope this interests you? And if so, once I have 50 interested people signed up on this “Special Persons“ contact list, I’m going to send out the second comic and the scripts as well as some interesting “Making Of” materials. We’re not going to publish this like we do with our other webcomics because we want to test the interest in this kind of endeavor. If the newsletter grows, Parson will flourish and the content will flow. If it doesn’t, then we have many projects in the works. Take a moment to let us know this is something you would like to see happen. If it takes off, we’ll try and publish in different venues, but this is a test. Lets see where this goes.
