Comic Strips: Honest Speculations and A Look Back


I’ve made 14 comics so far. Comic strips sharing a lot about my inner thoughts about life and the faith.

 Yet in spite of this, I still really fail to define what I am all about, and it is getting a bit difficult to keep making comics. I’m mostly getting in these dilemmas, or maybe just unable to handle my time well.
Anyway, here’s a post looking back at the comic strips that I have made from February 2013 – October 2013. You can click on the images to bring you to the original comic post.

Comic #1: Wait And See

I made Wait And See with the confidence that Christ keeps on redeeming me in the midst of the disbelief and self-doubt. This has, in a way, touched other people through and through.

Comic #5: If I Could Be Like Me

I miss being a child where I didn’t have to worry or shape the future that could be ahead of me. At that moment, I wasn’t thinking about what I’d really like to be or how I’d like to shape myself. I thought things would just happen and fall into place. I was also very creative, more than most kids, I believe. I was writing comics, and making up my own stories and characters. Looking back,if ever someone showed their support to me, that would have helped me out as a kid and change me in a huge way. I still remember the stories, although they were simple.. I know the beauty behind them. But like the comic said, they were thrown away.

Comic #4: Red Tie Guy

I tried to take a break from the usual comic style and use a popular meme figure called ‘cereal guy’ who is famous for the line “you will never have a boyfriend/girlfriend”. I took it to a weird inward approach where he questions himself instead of how he usually has his say about other people.

People can have their opinion about us, but we can’t let the negatives shape our identity. We are more than what others see us – and even, how we see ourselves! If we are in Christ, our identity is righteous, loved, and destined for greater places.

Will we stay and eat cereal all day? Or be…who we really are?

Comic #2: Fear and Love


Comic by tacticianjenro

Comic: Fear And Love

“Peace could come at quite a cost, so we won’t build a bridge across..Fear is easy, love is hard.” -Jason Gray, in his song here.

After so many months, I finally decided to make a new comic, the first one being here.

These are some of my thoughts about how often we don’t give others a chance, or even dismiss them as hopeless. I think, If God loves us so much we should do our best to see others as humans with souls, who are still never too far from redemption. I know how He loves me, and I don’t want that love being held back to myself. Well, I know that’s tough but…I’d prefer to choose to live a life of love..

Comic: Mr. Noah Tall


Comic: Meet Mr. Noah Tall by me, tacticianjenro

(YAY for my first comic strip! *clap clap clap*)

Meet Mr. Noah Tall. He knows a lot of things. Like, what the answers are, or what the facts are. What are the foundations, the things we need to hear are. Yeah, he seems to “know it all”.

Sure, that’s great! Knowledge and understanding is a great thing. Discipline and obedience is a great thing. So is teaching, directing people..all those stuff.

But what about love? A love that comes from the heart?

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.” -1 Corinthians 13:1-2
