Thrilling Graphic Novel Blends Comic Book Adventure with Biblical Themes

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) November 13, 2006

Obliging the requests initiated by his first novel “Eye Witness: A Fictional Tale of Absolute Truth,” Robert James Luedke transforms his groundbreaking work into a full trilogy. Now considered one of the pioneers of the newest genre in literary circles—the Christian-based graphic novel— this author/illustrator proudly releases his second installment, “Eye Witness: Acts of the Spirit” (ISBN 0975892428).

The innovative Eye Witness series weaves text with comic-book graphics to create a unique literary design where two stories overlap, and the past and the present run concurrently. In “Acts of the Spirit,” Luedke combines an exciting, political thriller with relevant aspects of the first nine chapters from the Book of Acts—covering the morning of Jesus’ resurrection through the road to Damascus. The remarkable transition in “Acts of the Spirit” from the 21st to the 1st centuries is possible due to the magical quality of the graphic novel.

Larger-than-life forensic archeologist, Dr. Terry Harper (aka the Bone Man), has just completed a consulting assignment for the Israeli Ministry of Antiquities when he finds himself caught in the middle of an attempted suicide bombing. The turbulent atmosphere of political unrest becomes the thrilling backdrop as Dr. Harper fights to save his life, and battle his way out of the ensuing drama. Was this a random act of violence against the Jewish state, or was it targeting the controversial scientist himself? Dr. Harper’s journey becomes one of historical discovery and spiritual awakening as this lifelong skeptic is forced to accept the truth of his remarkable discoveries.

Luedke spent 15 years within the mainstream comic industry as a retailer, author and publisher, before focusing his efforts in the arena of faith-based graphic novels. This skeptic of 41 years went though a personal conversion to the Christian faith, which lends metaphoric similarities to the main character in “Acts of the Spirit.” Geared towards the teen to young adult reader, his books are also creating a buzz with mature counterparts, as well as comic book and graphic novel enthusiasts. Recent appearances on national TV talk shows and news broadcasts prove that Luedke is a main player in revolutionizing the most popular literary genre outside the United States.

Robert James Luedke currently lives with his wife and two children just outside Dallas, TX and founded Head Press Publishing in 1995. After his conversion to the Christian faith in 1999, he rerouted his creative efforts towards the faith-based graphic novel genre, with his Eye Witness trilogy. In addition to his art and publishing work, Luedke travels the country giving his testimony and speaking to youth groups. “Eye Witness: Acts of the Spirit” (ISBN 0975892428) can be purchased at book retailers nationwide, or online at:
