Captain Sun 2020

August 31, 2020

Captain Sun was designed to be the superhero ‘everyman’, a classic character who feels like he came from the Golden or Silver age of comics. But every classic character needs an update once in a while, right? So I decided to give him a little more of that body armor feel, and some extra details here and there. CALLING ALL ARTISTS (of any age)! Let’s see what kind of updates you would make to the Captain’s costume. Send them to me at itscaptainsun@gmail.com.

Captain Sun vs. Viral!

May 19, 2020

While Captain Sun can’t cure coronavirus, he can protect Capital City from a new villain… Viral. I hope this ‘PSA-style’ comic page is both fun and useful as you talk with your kids about the current crisis, and the hope that God remains our hero through it all. More at captainsun.com/covid19
