At this year’s Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas I was turned on to the work of Daniel Connor a cartoonist based in San Antonio, Texas. Daniel’s personality alone was enough for me buy one of his comics. Daniel Connor is the creator of the web comic series “Heaven Forbid”. The comic takes a humorous look at church culture while also examining Bible scripture.
One of things I like about “Heaven Forbid” is that you don’t have to be Christian to like it. The story lines are funny and can be relatable to most people, even to those of us that didn’t grow up in the church. The comics that deal with Bible text aren’t heavy at all and reading them makes you feel like you are having a conversation with a close friend. Connor’s artwork is done in black and white and is done in a carefree drawing style. Daniel’s artwork is reminiscent of Bryan Lee O’ Malley with his own style being noticeable.
I’m very happy to have had a chance to meet Daniel Connor; he is probably of the nicest people you could talk to. If you get a chance to meet Daniel at any cons he just might draw you as your favorite superhero or comix character. And you can find new “Heaven Forbid” comics comes out Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
