Baldwin Plans Christian Comic Books
THE USUAL SUSPECTS star STEPHEN BALDWIN is launching a series of graphic novels to help his spread the word of Christianity to teenagers. The born-again Christian is the brains behind the SPIRIT WARRIOR series of comics, which follows the fortunes of a group of God-loving skateboarders. He explains, "There's really not a lot of stuff out there in the media or in products that are available to kids that represent the Christian thing that's relevant. "There's nothing that's hardcore and fun that can really compete with a lot of stuff that's similar. If you go to a bookstore to their graphic novel section if you look at the Christian stuff it's pretty dorky and cheesy stuff. It's not as hip and edgy and cool. "Spirit Warriors is the story of six or seven kids that are out there; they're gnarly skateboarders that are edgy kids who are living out their faith in Jesus Christ. "It's all about how they're battling the supernatural and the spirit realm each and every day between the forces of good and evil and darkness and light.."
