Artwork is top tier, story is tear-inducing, so get it and tear into it!

Finally, a comic book the whole family can enjoy!

I learned about Voyage Comics from an article in my Knights of Columbus magazine, and so I purchased several issues- Champion of the Poor, Finnian, and the Phantom Phoenix. All are terrific stories with beautiful artwork. I plan to send them to my Godsons, both teenagers, for them to enjoy as well. Keep up the good work, Voyage Comics!

Drew Attention and Read

Purchased for my grandchildren. While my grandson was reading, his sisters were reading along with him over his shoulder. The cover art caught their attention. The interior drawings and storyline held their attention. Am so glad that I ordered.

A fine, bio comic

Another entry in the tradition of the Fr. Peyton comic, solid read about a priest I hadn't been aware of.
