A few months ago I was asked to do a comic for an anthology being published by Sunstone Magazine. I had never heard of the magazine before, but I was a fan of several other artists who were asked to do a comic for it, and I liked the idea of doing something short and sweet, and colorless. This is actually my second attempt, the first idea I had was soon mired in a story tar pit. I hope to finish that one someday, because I really liked where it was going.
Anyway, Star Thrower is based off of this story, which was in turn based loosely off of this story. You may have heard a version at church or at a motivational speech or in an email from a concerned parent. I always thought the title sounded sci-fi, and naturally my thoughts drifted into space and to other planets. Eventually, I landed here, on the moon, with a couple of giant aliens and a host of stranded astronauts. The absurdity of it all made me laugh, so I had to comicatize it.
