Advent 1.5

Our latest comic book gig is the story of Father Augustus Tolton, the first black priest in the US, whose cause for canonization was recently introduced. It's an amazing story--I finished reading his biography today. In addition to being a gifted pastor, he taught himself to play the accordion and had a beautiful baritone singing voice. He died at 43. We are pretty excited to write about him. I mean, it's not the Great American Novel, but it could well be the Great American Graphic Novel.
