Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a pastor, author, father, husband, superhero geek, comic-book nerd, and follower of Jesus!
What was your motivation behind this project? I've loved superheroes since I was a kid. I mean, who didn't love tying a towel around their neck and pretending to fly like Superman? I've also loved Jesus since I was a kid. My hope and prayer is to build a bridge from the colorful action-packed world of superheroes to the one true superhero, Jesus Christ.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Many years ago, I read a similar book by H. Michael Brewer titled "Who Needs a Superhero?" This book piqued my interest in drawing spiritual lessons from comic-book characters, a practice I continue to be passionate about today. Imagine my excitement when I discovered that H. Michael Brewer agreed to write the forward for Holy Heroes!
