Fastest-Growing Niche in Publishing—Source for Blockbuster Films

The success of films such as The Avengers ($1.5 billion worldwide), based on a comic, and TV shows like The Walking Dead on AMC (13 million viewers), based on a graphic novel, served as a wakeup call to the power of this market niche. Now, Kingstone Media stakes out the high ground for the faith-market of comics and graphic novels.

A New Way to Reach Young People

Art Ayris, CEO of Kingstone Media, offers this compelling story on why the Christian world needs to know about comics and graphic novels: “A very simple experiment I give to pastors or church leaders: ‘You are having a youth event. Lay Bibles on one table and comic books on another—where do you think the kids are heading?’” Talk to Art, a pastor himself, about the future of this niche for the faith community.
