Captain Sun Rescue Me! Review #hsreviews #CaptainSun #itsCaptainSun


The Captain Sun Adventures
I think everyone likes to read comics or comic books once in a while. We aren't a huge comic book reading family but Alaina does have a favorite and she reads more than the rest of us do. She was excited to read a new comic Rescue Me! What Superheroes Can Teach Us About The Power of Faith from The Captain Sun Adventures.

Rescue Me! is book 1 of the Captain Sun adventures. It is a comic book but it is also a kids' devotional. It is a 38-page softcover book full of colored graphics written by Bryce Morgan. He gives a brief introduction on how he loved comic books growing up and how he discovered who the real superhero is when he got older. He also suggests ways to use the book with your children.

There are 8 short chapters where we see that darkness is trying to overtake the city and the people are looking for Captain Sun to save the day. Captain Sun takes on the evil nemesis Black-Out to save the city. At the end of each chapter is a page that looks like the front page of a newspaper called the Capital City Chronicle. This page talks about how Christianity can be like having super powers. It asks the kids a question and quotes scripture to tie it all together.

Some of the questions asked in the Chronicle include what superpower would you want to have & how would you use it to help others, what villains can you name, do you know any superheroes sidekicks, and more. These questions help kids to understand the biblical concept that is being discussed.  The question about superheroes sidekicks shows how we need each other in the church. The question about what superpower would you want relates to the power to love and obey God. Then the bible verses go along with the topic.  

It didn't take Alaina long to read the comic book. And of course, she had to fill us all in on what was happening. When my son was younger he loved superheroes but the girls don't really get into them much so it was fun to take about superpowers with them and to relate it to the bible. Alaina would want to be invisible for her superpower and mine well I would like to be able to go without sleep because I have so many things I want to do. It is a fun way to open up discussions with your kids and kinda gives them a different perspective on the church and Christianity.

The author Bryce Morgan is a part-time cartoonist and a pastor of Way of Grace Church in Buckeye, Arizona. Mitch Martin is the illustrator and he is a graphic artist living and working in the East coast, Canada.

If you are looking to add a little fun to your child's devotions this little comic book is a good option. Make sure to head over to the Crew Blog to read what other Crew Members had to say about it.
