We stay in the 80s but leap into an entirely different world: a children's adventure series aimed at young Christian readers. The first book of the Spirit Flyer series is "The Magic Bicycle," so named because there's a Magic Bicycle in it that may or may not be Jesus.
Lit Brick is a comic started by Jodie Troutman in an effort to read the entire Norton Anthology of English Literature. Having eventually succeeded in that goal, it now features comics about all manner of random literature. For more of Jodie's work, visit troutcave.net!
