On Speechlessness and Fundamentalism

I was about to proudly announce that my graphic novel Religion: a Discovery in Comics will be published this year by NBM – when the attack on Charlie Hebdo happened and left me speechless.

This might not be the best time to promote a work that puts pictures and religious thought together. Or maybe it is the best of times, now that there’s this enormous graphic surge of cartoons that cry out for freedom of speech.

I don’t know. But here are two pages of my upcoming book that have some bearing on all that is happening.
