Editor-in-Chief : Ben Avery
Ben Avery formed the Community Comics in 2001 as a loose group, drawn together to create a small giveaway for Halloween called The Larson Street Kids: David’s Story. Since that humble beginning, Community Comics and Avery have both grown. Avery has gone on to develop Hero TV, The Larson Street Kids, and Chosen Mortals for Community Comics and also freelanced his talents to help create Mike S. Miller’s The Imaginaries and Lullaby, two all ages books.
Avery has also worked on the critically acclaimed George R.R. Martin’s The Hedge Knight, published by Image and Devil’s Due, which received rave reviews (both from critics and the New York Times best selling author, George R.R. Martin, who wrote the original book) for his faithful script adaptation. But Avery’s passion lies in his work with Community Comics, from adapting Bible stories to creating the fantasy series ArmorQuest. ?Community Comics gives me an opportunity to do two things I really enjoy — create stories and encourage other artists to do the same.? That desire to encourage other Christian artists to worship Christ through the arts has manifested itself in the creation of the Megaunity Challenge (co-sponsored by The Megazeen) and the more recent SELAH: The Psalms Project.
