News from the United Catholic Geek Front.

In Peter Freeman's Article God and the Geeks he mentions the graphic novels of Gene Luen Yang.
(I am a geek but not a consumer of graphic novels so if any of you are what do you think of this guy?)

Peter also mention J. R. Tolkien's work. Aside from that he makes an excellent point on Catholics today in the media and that we should not put aside our faith in the art creation process.
"But the question is a serious one for geek culture: Is there a way to convert all that time spent re-watching Star Wars, reading fan fiction, and playing epic video games into something greater than entertainment?"

Yes we need more writers like Gilbert, Lewis, and Belloc.

People unafraid to write from the Truth in order to get published.
