How often do you update?
You can “like” God Comics on Facebook, follow the Official Twitter or the RSS Feed for notifications of new updates and other occasional goodies.
The goal is to update every Sunday, but the Lord works in mysterious ways, and I work two mysterious jobs for mysterious poverty wages, so sometimes that won’t happen. Okay, so that’s no longer the case, but it’s the best joke on this whole website, and I’m not changing it. I do still work anywhere from 55 to 69 hours a week, but that’s not hindering me too much. The truth is I’m just not that creative.
What process do you use to make your comics?
Generally, I sketch them out on paper then take a digital photo and color them using Computers. I like digital photos over traditional scans for the skewed perspectives, unexpected shadows, and other artifacts they tend to leave behind. You might notice a few artifacts in the final comics, if you’re one of those people who notices Things.
Why are you doing this?
Like the Jack Chicks and Dan Liethas of old, I feel spiritually compelled to stoke the endless debate between pious, conservative housewives and despondent, godless teens. I’m spiritual.
For those of you who may be unaccustomed to getting jokes, that was one. I don’t really know why I’m doing this. The fact that my family is full of religious zealots who seem hell-bent on indoctrinating their youth probably has something to do with it, but I’m not on some crusade to destroy everybody’s faith. At least, I’m not trying to be. It’s probably important to note that I don’t actually care all that much about religion. Really! That probably sounds weirdly disingenuous coming from a guy who spends a fair amount of his free time making atheist webcomics, but I mean it.
The world is already rife with atheist nerds who’ll emphatically state without batting an eyelash that all problems on Earth stem from religion – not from, you know, human nature or a highly evolved ape species’ violent reaction to an absurd existence of which it is helplessly aware. These people are not hard to find. I like to imagine that I’m not one of them. If I’m full of shit, please tell me.
All that being said, I do find religion to be particularly funny and hope to one day profit from repeatedly pointing this out. I’m a capitalist fuck, and no, that last part wasn’t a joke. Give me your money.
These are obscene! Why don’t you have a warning?
Sorry. I just got off the phone with the FCC, and they told me there’s a small subsection in their censorship policy that specifically protects the distribution of cartoon wee-wees, especially in your workplace. I’m so sorry. My hands are tied.
Has it occurred to you that some people might need God? Or that your arrogant proselytizing pointlessly mimics the fundamentals that it mocks?
Haha, okay look. People can and should believe what they want. I just want them to think as well as believe. Lots of folks are too willing to accept the premise that all the answers they will ever need are written in the pages of a book they haven’t read. You may know some of these peeps. Hey, I think some of them are running for President!
Why are you such a jerk?
You’re the one asking all the mean questions. :(
How do I contact you?
If you are hopping mad and want to tell me what’s what, or you just want to say hello, feel free to contact me at Dave@God-Comics.com. Or if you want to, you can threaten me with bodily harm via Twitter. All gross dick doodles aside, I’m actually a pretty nice guy once you get to know me. :)
