Flaming Sword Productions is suspending its web site operations and taking its message into the streets of Israel, intending to land at the Sea of Galilee with a multitude in the Spring of 2006. When you hear about this movement from the Land of the Prophets, know that a new kingdom of The Creators is coming into the world.
I look forward to seeing the comics creators community drawing inspiration from the coming events and giving wings to the rise of this movement through the comics - taking the queue from the likes of Neal Adams' Growing Universe Science Project, his new graphic novel Blood and Mark Millar's Chosen, for a collective thrust of subject matter which will blossom like a mighty oak in the entertainment world. To this end, Neal Adams began forming The Comic Book Creator's Guild more than a quarter of a century ago.
The time is drawing near for the creators to begin making their move.
The rebirth of Biblical Prophecy from the Land of Israel - and the roots it has in the comic book industry - will not only inspire the coalescence of the creators' community and the forming of its first union - but it will also give rise to a new socio-political-economic leadership in America. The Comic Book Creators' Party.
The collective infrastructure and roadmap for this movement began more than a quarter of a century ago in the comic book industry of the mid-1970's. Its goals and aspirations are detailed in The New Comic Book of Life web site.
A well done goes out to Neal Adams, Clifford Meth, Mark Millar, Alan Weiss and host of comics community creators and professionals who've accompanied Flaming Sword. The list is too long to contain here but a few names bear special mention: Rich Johnston, Graeme McMillan, Heidi MacDonald, Matt Brady, Elayne Riggs, Jennifer Contino, Daniel Best, Rick Offenberger, Thom Young, Alex Segura, Mike Pascale, Peter David, Mark Badger, Blaire Marnell, Chris Bunting, Richard Emms, Ed Tegler and Millarworld's Free Sketch Thread community, Beau Smith, Jim Reeber, Steven Bové, Martin Oakley, Rick Olney, Doc, Kurt Buziek, Norm Breyfogle, Steven Grant, Bryan Talbot, Tom Spurgeon, Warren Ellis, the web communities at Talk@Newsarama; Joe Quesada Forums; Millarworld; Captain Comics Roundtable, Comic Book Resources; Comicon; The Pulse; The Beat; The Great Curve; Neilalien; the well remembered Fanboy Rampage crew, the Amritas and my high-school years friend Tim Gasco. A special thanks to everyone who participated in the comment threads and forum discussions, as well as to Jason Brice for the continued professional hosting services at Silver Bullet.
Far from this being the end of Flaming Sword Productions, it's merely a temporary suspension of web site activity which holds a promise of bringing us closer to realizing our goals by breathing new life into the comics industry through the rise of a popular movement from the Land of Promises, where great social, spiritual, political and economic upheavals were born in times past.
To all who yearn for The New Kingdom, an open invitation is extended to come and take part in the glorious events about to unfold, by plannig a visit to Israel in the coming year. An open invitation to join the multitude who'll raise the Son of Man into the Clouds of Heaven.
No need to pack a lunch - we have some fishes and a few loaves of bread in the baskets.
