An ecumenical group of Catholics and Protestants that call themselves 'Christians BD', work together on a series of comic books that deal with questions on God.
The group has 25 years of experience and takes part in the biggest comic book festival in Europe. It's called the International Comics Festival and it takes place in Angoulême, France. There's even a special section dedicated to them called the Festival of Сhristians BD.
For these artists, comic books are not just a hobby but a new language to communicate faith.
Among their merchandise, titles can be found such as 'Judith', and 'A life devoted to God and men', which deals with the dramatic story of a group of monks in war torn Algeria, there's also 'The Way of the Small Ones', a collection dedicated to children on stories from the Bible and the Sacraments.
The group Christians BD says they have three objectives: to promote the comic book style of explaining Christianity, to establish a link between faith and reason, and to attract more authors. Their work is a pioneering force in an industry where faith has had little presence.
