New Catholic Comic Book project launched by a couple of Sconnies

August 15, 2017 - Wisconsin Rapids, WI - Writer Philip Kosloski[Sconnie], along with artist Michael LaVoy[Sconnie], launched today a new comic book entitled The Last Monks of Skellig Michael on crowd-funding site Kickstarter. The two have set out to raise $7,500 to complete production of the action packed comic book, making it available to the general public.

The Last Monks of Skellig Michael is a new comic series that explores the radical life and exciting adventures of the ancient monastic community on the island known for its appearance in Star Wars films The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. It follows a young man who is struggling to find his place in the world and who defiantly travels to the distant isle off the coast of Ireland. What happens next is beyond anything he imagined.


“It’s a story about faith, trust and following your ‘gut’ when everyone else is against you,” says writer Philip Kosloski. “The comic also seeks to highlight the spiritual world that is often hidden from our eyes, but on occasion reveals itself in a miraculous fashion. In developing this comic it brought together two passions in my life, Star Wars and the Catholic faith. There are no lightsabers in this story, but let’s just say that the Force' is strong with this one.”

The Last Monks of Skellig Michael Kickstarter campaign will run from August 15 - September 12, 2017.


Very cool!  Please consider backing this great project!
