Awesome, loving this, thanks!!
This is brilliant! Beautiful, honest work, Stephen. I’m sharing this with my friends for sure.
Very meta indeed, but more nastalgic. I’m definately feelin’ the love. I think this is how I feel about the bible, cause my mom was reading it to me before I could read, and I’ve been reading it ever since.
i like it. you wore the same clothes when you were a kid as you do now
So cute, and funny! XD

This just makes me happy
Fantastic advice! I have already been looking for something like this for a long time now. Thank you!
Thanks for your comments, especially since I know who that older boy was!
So sorry to hear about your G’pa tho. Praying for you and the whole fam.
Thanks Christi, I appreciate that!
Wow! I know the older boy too. You are a kind young man.
Thanks Mr. Gac! I’m appreciate it!
This is absolutely awesome. Keep up the great work!!
I just found your site, and your comics are absolutely wonderful.
Welcome! Thank you.
I used to draw comics in church too, when I was a kid Then I grew up and started listening to the sermons! Haha.
Love the colour theme of this blog, and of course the content
Loving the “skills” of the 6 year old Stephen…haha! Easy to relate now that I have a son who is the same age and was testing the speed of his new shoes today. I got to sit down with him the other day and help him with his ideas for a few short comics….priceless moment. (I promised not to share them though) Also, I use to draw during church growing up too…still do actually. I can easily see God the Father smiling and watching me at 29 with my “special skills” as I run in circles super fast!
