Why a Christian Manga?
When I was writing The Hero Within Series, I was thinking about a Manga story, because I love Manga. Well, I what I really love is Anime, but Manga comes first.
Manga is a visual expression of the story and it has worldwide acceptance. The new generation is more into graphics than reading. Therefore, I believe that with The Hero Within – Christian Manga Version, I will be able to reach a completely new audience, readers and manga lovers worldwide.
After publishing the first two books of The Hero Within Series “Awareness and Power”; all I could think about was creating the Manga version of my story.
I researched online for Manga artist and I was finally able to find the perfect artist to bring The Hero Within into this Manga Version.
After several conversations, we finally agreed on the price and the Manga process was on the way. That was back on 2017. It took more than 2 years to complete The Hero within – Awareness and The Hero Within – Power into this final Manga Version.
Last December, I received final chapters from my Manga Artist and I just praised the Lord for it. Then, I thought that I needed to color full story. I was thinking about a full color version, when I realized it was too expensive for me to cover.
At the end, I decided to create chapter teasers in color that is when I hired a color artist to color my chapter teasers.
While in this process, we started creating the website for my new Christian Manga Version and here we are.
Is it a Manga or a Comic? Well, I love Manga (Anime), I know a little bit of Japanese, even when I wrote the story in English, so, I prefer to call it Manga. It sounds more interesting to me, but you may call it Manga or Comic, opt to you. The important thing is that you love it as much as I do.
