Who drew the comics?
Hi, I'm new to the whole subject matter.
I'm curious about those comics which were used by the Family and would like to learn more about them.
First of, who drew them? Was it David Berg himself? -- (I noted that at least one of them is signed "Philippe la Plume" = "Philip the Pen".)
When did the usage of comics start? Were they used equally for recruitment and communication with Family members? Does the Family still use comics?
Thanks.

Re: Who drew the comics?
As far as I know, David Berg never drew anything. He was, however, very involved with telling the artists what and how to draw. The cult had (and still has) many artists that contributed towards their publications. In the early days (1970s), they used them primarily for covers of Berg's articles. Around that time, Berg wanted all of his writings illustrated. At first, the primary audience was adults, but later they started producing them for children (see: True Komix).

PS: the only comparable religious comics (or "graphic novels") I can think of are the infamous Chick Tracts.

Re: Who drew the comics?
oh well, there was a book, and i don't remember exactly when it was burned, i think it was some kind of log book (for FFing, BMs, etc), and also one other book where berg was quite involved in the drawings. he sketched out most of the posters of the ffing era in some way and then artists took it from there. but yes, there was a period when he did a lot of sketching that made it into some racy pubs that were eventually burned (the books in their entirety). anyone else remember these? i think the log one was a hard back.

It's interesting that Berg had more than a passing interest in the illustrations. Thanks for the insight, Cookie.

I can't recall where from, but I remember from long ago that somewhere Berg was talking to Eman Artist about Heaven's Girl's breasts, and was criticising Eman's drawing and saying that he wanted the breasts a bit more perky and I think something about the nipples as well. He was talking about the angles that young girls' breasts are usually at, stuff like that. Rolling Eyes

He starts off kind of discussing her legs and knockers, and then really warms to the subject of gang-rape.
