Profile Information

About Me:
I've been into comics since I was a kid. First it was more about collecting the cards, sketching the pictures, and watching the cartoons. Now it's more about digging into the stories, characters, and themes. It's also still about the cartoons though, lol! As a Christian who's into comic books, I feel like there is a huge void to be filled in terms of telling stories about (super)heroes that focus on Christian principles and people of color.

In May 2009, I decided to step out on faith and start working on my own comic, called "Lightweightz." It's about eight teens in California who discover they have unique abilities. How will they use their abilities? Will they view them as a gift or a curse? In essence, Lightweightz addresses the following questions: What if we could significantly impact others' lives by how we treat them? To what extent is the way we view ourselves and our place in the world reflected in how we relate to others?

A few months later, I connected with a priest and graphic novelist Earnest Graham, and we agreed to create a comic/graphic novel about the life of the apostle Peter.

Both projects are progressing nicely, and you can learn more about them by visiting the blog: www.rscomicz.com.

Hey everyone,

I know our hearts were saddened this past weekend upon hearing about the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut and the stabbings in China. As we approach this holiday season and afterwards, please continue to keep the families of those affected, and their respective communities in your thoughts and/or prayers.

On the comic front, I have a couple of quick updates:

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
