Parable Now Available

Those of you that have been following me for a while now know that a few years ago I started organizing a Christian comic anthology called Parable. The book was supposed to be available back in 2008 but due to unforeseen circumstances (that I’ll likely address in a later post), its publication was delayed. Well, I’m excited to say it is NOW AVAILABLE under a new publisher and at a special introductory price. Here is all the info:

PARABLE is a collection of modern parables from some of the world’s best independent animators, web artists and comic creators. From personal introspectives to fantastic fictions, each short tale provides its own unique glimpse of the elusive (and eternal) truths of life. The result is a rich volume full of faith, love, grace and beautiful sequential art.

Featuring a foreword by Doug TenNapel and stories by: Ben Avery, Bryan Ballinger, Tim Baron, Tor Harald Blom, Monika Brozda, Paul Conrad, Rob Corley, Michelle Gorski, Ben Hatke, C Hill, Mike Laughead, Mike Maihack, James Mar, Stephen McCranie, Sarah Mensinga, Caleb Monroe, Caroline Parkinson, Dean Rankine, Jeremy Vanhoozer, and Rob Woodrum.

All orders placed before Jan 31st are 30% off and include a free digital download. Orders taken by Dec 9th will get their books in time for Christmas. Parable will also be available on Amazon and a few other places later this month, but the Lamp Post store is the only place to order the discounted bundled package. The ebook is also available separately.

I’ve also uploaded a 70 page preview of the book HERE. Please help us spread the word. This book has been both a labor of love and a tremendousness undertaking, so it fills me with so much peace to know it is finally available for people to read.

    Oooh, pretty. Some of my favorite folks contributed. It has just been added to my Christmas List. I’ll get it any after Christmas if need be.

    Let me know the next time you put together a collection, I’d love to be a part of it.

      This is so cool, Mike. I read the first four volumes of Flight over the summer, and I thought how cool it would be to see a Christian one out there. Then I see on Twitter this Parable thing and decide to check it out.


      ’nuff said. Thanks for having the dedication to put this together — I will order it in January. And maybe a few years from now I might submit a story myself.
