SIGNING: Join The Book of Revelation artist CHRIS KOELLE and Last Adam: Firstborn artist KAI CARPENTER for a signing at the HarperCollins booth #1029 on Saturday at 2:00PM.

CCAS will distribute a “Passport to Christians In Comics” map of the Comic-Con floor designed to help attendees navigate to, explore, and support industry professionals who pursue excellence of the comics craft in the context of their Christian faith through various adult, family, faith-friendly or faith-based projects.

CCAS and Zondervan, a division of HarperCollins Christian Publishing, will be selling signed copies of The Book of Revelation, a graphic novel currently ranked #1 on Amazon Best Sellers list for Religious Arts and Photography.

CCAS and Zondervan will also be distributing samplers and signed posters for the first installment of the exciting new graphic novel series Last Adam:  Firstborn.  Set to release this fall, Firstborn is a beginning, an origin story, the remarkable starting point for a remarkable life.  This first adventure in The Last Adam graphic novel series illustrates the story of Jesus’ birth and early life in terms of a grand and sweeping family saga, powered by acts of sacrifice, villainy and heroism.
