Instead of candy, we have a special Halloween treat for you that won't give you a sugar hangover the next morning. Check out these hilarious Latter-day Saint comics by Arie Van De Graaff and Kevin Beckstrom that are simply spooktacular!
Arie Van De Graaff Comics
When Arie Van De Graaff was a missionary in the MTC, he drew a cartoon missionary on the outside of each envelope he mailed home. The response from his family was so positive that he was soon including a cartoon strip inside the envelope with every letter home. Since then, Van De Graaff has created hundreds of gags celebrating Latter-day Saint culture.
He uses his art to entertain his wife and four children and is regularly featured in the New Era and the Friend magazines.
Van De Graaff has also published four books including The Puzzle Book for Latter-day Saint Kids and Now That I am Baptized, as well as a number of iOS apps. Visit his website at wardcartoonist.com to see more of his work.
Keven Beckstrom Comics
Kevin Beckstrom began his cartooning career at age 16, when he sold his first cartoon to the New Era, and his work has appeared there continuously ever since. As a student at BYU, he drew a comic strip, 121, and contributed the occasional editorial cartoon. Nowadays his award-winning work has appeared in numerous magazines, newsletters, newspapers, and trade publications. He has drawn hundreds of cartoons that show the lighter side of life as a Latter-day Saint. He runs several webcomics, including Sis. Kerry Jo’s Mission Blog, Zarahemla Times, and Beckstrom Buzz. He and his wife Christy are the parents of five boys and live in Salem, Oregon.
