New Book - Eye Witness: Unknown God

Writer Author  Robert James Luedke
Christian Press Release : New Book  - Fiction  Yes

Christian Author Writer Flower Mound, TX- Coming on the heels of the critical success of the earlier volumes of his Eye Witness graphic novel series, author/illustrator Robert James Luedke, this week released the fourth and final chapter...Eye Witness: Unknown God, completing the epic story he started eight years earlier.

In an literary format that is largely dominated by overly muscled men, scantily clad women and lots of zombies, Luedke's time-hopping Biblical based action-adventure story truly stands out from the crowd! Through years of research, Luedke, has effectively (in a fictional sense) filled in the gaps in the Biblical narrative from the Passion week through the Book of Acts and combined it with a compelling and nail biting modern day action-thriller. "The storyline combines elements of Indiana Jones, a gripping New Testament story, time travel, espionage and dramatic scenes that rank among the best in American comic artistry," stated Journalist, David Crumm, on his, website.

Luedke made the commitment to begin the Eye Witness series in 2002, as a way to share the spiritual, historical and dramatic nature of the Passion Story, in a way that would draw the attention of teens and young adults...especially those who may have never read a Bible or attended church, but loved reading comics and graphic novels. "I intentionally designed Eye Witness' unique mixture of Biblical adaptation and modern day thriller to make the story of the New Testament exciting, attractive and fun for today's readers, "states Luedke. "My goal was treat the Book of Acts like Cecil B. DeMille treated the book of Exodus in his Ten Commandments adding characterization, dramatization and connecting the dots for those not familiar with the original narrative."

The series has generated coverage by major media from coast to coast and the praise of many religious leaders as well as comic veterans alike. According to long-time comics writer/editor, Brian Augustyn, "Luedke started this series as a gifted cartoonist with a vision and ends the series as an evangelist of the paneled page."

Eye Witness (Book Three): Rise of the Apostle (which was released in August 2008) was awarded a gold medal in the category of graphic novels at the 2009 National Best Book Awards, sponsored annually by and was named a finalist in the FOREWORD Magazine book of the year awards
Eye Witness (Book Two): Acts of the Spirit (released, August 2006) was honored as the best comic/graphic novel at the 2007 Hollywood Book Festival. The book also took a silver medal at the 2007 Independent Publisher Magazine Awards, as well as being named a finalist in the FOREWORD Magazine book of the year awards.

All of the Eye Witness graphic novels are available from finer book and comic retailers nationwide. For more information about Luedke and his Eye Witness series, visit:
