      Is creating comic books a sin?

      Is creating (writing the stories, inventing and drawing characters, superpowers, villains etc.) comic books, like those produced by DC Comics and Marvel, a sin for a Christian? Bring arguments to support your opinions.

      That's an interesting question and one I've often thought about. I have no good answer but am eager to see what others think.

      All of those characters are based on pagan greek gods, and they teach those gods in school which is very odd. Is it a sin? I conclude that a Christian wouldn't care to write these kind of books, we can obviously see that the person wrote the Harry Potter books is far from Christian.

      Two things...


      1. I doubt it although I've never seen a comic book (produced by DC or Marvel or any other).


      2. We ARE sinners. NOTHING we do "hits the mark" but always falls short of the mark (the definition of sin) so it's always a bit dangerous to say, "But when I do this, I've ceased to be a sinner); the particular ACTION may be good but it doesn't mean we cease to be what we are, and probably doesn't mean we thus are entirely, perfectly "hitting the mark" and not in any sense "falling short of the mark." Sin isn't rare.




      .
      We are justified by works - just not our own.

      Jack Chic wrote comic books as "Christian tracts" --- they were thoroughly hateful.

      I looked him up. I found a very hateful comic about him created by someone after his death. Is his work available on the internet?
