Kids throughout the world are keeping comic books and graphic novels on the market, even during the age of video games and online chatting. But a new publisher is helping to put more diversity and more options on the shelves. For centuries, people have been telling stories by using pictures and Robert Luedke a graphic novel writer and illustrator is continuing with that tradition. But contrary to the comic super-hero story, he`s using the Bible and Christianity to tell a new type of story. "Eyewitness is a graphic novel trilogy that I designed to share the birth of the Christian faith, in a way that is entertaining to young people who like reading graphic novels," he said. Luedke was in St. Joseph to sign his recently released a second Christian themed graphic novel, Eyewitness, Acts of the Spirit. His background with comic books has helped him put it all together. He has set out to conquer the youth and adults who share his love for graphic novels and Christianity. And many of his and readers say it was a genre that needs to be expanded. Skip Twitchell bought the novel and said its important to encourage his children in a Christian manner. And such comic books can help to do that. But Luedke`s novels have not been without controversy. He says he faced some challenges when trying to put his stories at comic book stores, owners were hesitant to allow a religious book on the shelves.. Before coming to Christianity, Luedke was a skeptic of the church, but says his search for answers in archeological and medical evidence, contributed greatly to his faith and novel. He is set to continue with his tour and hopes to inspire not only his readers but also more publishers to follow in his footsteps. Being the sole writer and illustrator of his novels is hard work and its taken him almost two years to complete acts of the spirit. Luedke says his next book, which is yet un-named is scheduled to come out sometime in 2008.
