If you’ve been apart of Christian culture for long enough you’ve probably suffered the indignity of a ‘christian comic strip’; heavy-handed, ham-fisted, and most of all not funny. Dave Wilkie the creator of Coffee With Jesus is here to help. The comic manages to juggle cultural critique, poignancy, and oh yeah, it’s super funny.
You can find new strips weekly on Radio Babylon’s Facebook Page.
