Mission: Understanding the need for a ministry such as COMIX35 can be a challenge in countries such as the USA where the biggest selling comic book title moves only a million copies a year.It is much more obvious in places such as:JAPAN, where the top title Shonen Jump sells 3.2 million copies every single week and a staggering 2.1 billion comics total are sold every year...KOREA, where 7,000 new comic book titles appear every year and 25 million volumes are published...THAILAND, where the top 2 comics, Kai Hua Roh and Mahasanook, together sell over 8 million copies a month...FRANCE, where graphic novels featuring the popular cartoon character Astérix le Gaulois have sold approximately 200 million volumes...The MIDDLE EAST and NORTHERN AFRICA, where the successful pan-Arab comic strip magazine Majid has a certified weekly circulation of 150,000 to 175,000 copies and is sold in almost every Arab state.INDIA ... PHILIPPINES ... NORWAY ... MEXICO ... BRAZIL ... ARGENTINA ... The international examples go on and on.Comics are excellent communication tools. People around the world already read them. They adapt to fit specific people groups. Comics are a natural for bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to children and adults across the globe.COMIX35's mission is to help ministries and individuals produce effective Christian comics as part of an evangelism strategy and/or discipleship program for their own people.
Results: COMIX35 has held 40 Christian comics teaching events for over 860 attendees representing 51 countries across Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and the Americas. COMIX35 has been involved in the production of numerous evangelistic Christian comics, tracts, and graphic novels in the US and around the world including Dorie the Girl Nobody Loved (Eastern Europe) and Manga Messiah (Japan). The Dorie comic has been used by Operation Mobilisation's Greater Europe team from Bulgaria to the Sakha (Yakutia) Republic in eastern Siberia and has been called one of their most successful publications. It is distributed in both orphanages and prisons. The Manga Messiah series, an adaptation of the Bible in the Japanese comic style, has now reached a total of 7 million books and booklets in 22 languages. Many people around the world have received Christ as their Savior through this project.
