He's launching the series with a Kickstarter campaign --- he wants to turn these fun/unique stories into full-color, hardback, glossy-paged books.
Who's Justin? Justin Blaney is a virtuoso, he does a little of everything, but one of the coolest things he does (besides writing amazing stories) is run an organization called Innovate for Jesus (resources for pastors, ministry leaders, non profits, authors, etc.). The site features people like Francis Chan, Rick Warren, Pete Wilson, Matt Chandler, Mary DeMuth, and more.
Besides the super cool graphics, what is special about Isfits? Justin is releasing his Isfits series in the general kids book market rather than as Christian releases. His hope is to spread the gospel message to children who aren't normally exposed to Christian content.
What Is Isfits?
