Free Retro Comics

Comic Book Plus Comic Screen

Despite the summer movie blockbusters and the future Marvel movie lineup, this is not the Golden Age of Comic Books. During the comic book boom, hundreds of new issues were released on a weekly basis. Many of these old comic books and comic book heros have now become Public Domain!

8-Bit Matrix Overdub [Video]

The Matrix - Stop

This video hits on so many levels of nostalgia, I was ready to enter the Konami code straight into YouTube to get myself an extra 30 lives. YouTube user Phillip Raupach uploaded his 2013 Best Sound Design winning video, whereby he's taken an edited scene from the Matrix and overdubbed iconic 8-bit sound effects and music.

I recently received an email from the church secretary asking to update an event on the church website. Included was an image they wanted to accompany the information.

I lend this to the fact that I spent multiple days at a time unplugged and completely disconnected from the Internet. No laptop. No tablet. No smartphone. I highly recommend you do it sometime—if not regularly. Not only did it force me to pause, clear my head, and have some self-reflection, but it also gave me a chance to contrast what I ...

Church Usher Training Video

Every Life Has A Story Screencap

The video below is from Chick-fil-A and was “created to remind us that everyone we interact with is a chance to create a remarkable experience.” While it was produced as a type of training video for their employees, I think many church usher teams (as well as anyone on church staff or volunteers) should consider sharing this and/or made this a part of their training process. ...

When some people hear the phrase “remote video conferencing,” they inwardly cringe. In the past, remote video conferencing was less than ideal, to put it kindly.
