I don’t know if you know this, but I’ve been a comic book artist for 24 years, having worked for both Marvel and DC comics on the likes of The X Men and Spider Man to Batman and The Justice League. There are more than 425 comics that list my name in the credits and 7,000 pages that bear my ink lines on them.
I created the concepts for Banana Tail along with my dear old departed Dad more then 10 years ago.
Here we are 10+ years later with 2 books under my belt, a third in the works, a computer generated movie being created completely based on my first storybook and now an affiliation with the worlds largest bookseller, Barnes and Noble. Things are moving in the right direction for me. I’ve just reached the milestone of the 1 millionth hit on my website for the year, for the first time in the 3 years that I’ve had this site. I’ve received visits to Bananatail.com from countries like Iceland, Denmark, Japan and Romania and it boggles my mind that children from these countries might be familiar with Banana Tail.
As I said, things are moving in the right direction for me, but it’s a slow arduous effort to get parents, teachers and even retailers to see Banana Tail the way that many kids and adults do. If you are a parent, retailer or a teacher and have visited this site with a child before and like what you see, please help me keep Banana Tail alive and fresh by reaching out to me. I make school appearances and will discuss traveling reasonable distances to make appearances. I offer a PTO fundraising effort with no appearance fee to the schools I visit and it ends up being a rewarding experience for everybody involved. If you are a retailer, I can discuss wholesale discounts and signed editions for your store to carry.
I will keep continuing to create Banana Tail stories and strive to move forward to make Banana Tail a household name. Its hard, but rewarding work. Thank all of you for your support!
An interdisciplinary cosmologist and independent scholar, Paul is internationally known for the hypothesis of an AB (advanced beings) intervention in human development; his theory of natural spirituality in an evolving, self-learning universe; and research on the survival of a personal soul-genome. His current books on these topics are We’ve Never Been Alone; Our Solarian Legacy; and The Soul Genome. Paul’s academic background (Florida State, Harvard and other institutions); his military, diplomatic, international executive career; and research on five continents keep his provocative publications grounded in emerging science and credible human experience.
THE REAL HUMAN STORY?
Homo sapiens have never been alone on Earth. Whether you call them gods, angels, ETs, or aliens, sufficient proof now exists that beings more advanced than humans have influenced our history. Evidence suggests that these outsiders manipulated our genes, shaped our cultures, and introduced us to advanced knowledge and technology, Their presence, followed by a precipitous departure, influenced the founding of supernatural religions. In fact, their intervention in human development provided the impetus for modern civilization.
Paul Von Ward investigates why contemporary science and religion refuse to address the possibility that humans interacted with and continue to communicate with Advanced Beings (ABs). He reviews sacred texts, myths and legends–from the Old Testament, Hebrew texts, and the Vedas, to the Greek myths, Sumerian tablets, and other historical sources to make the link between religions, their gods, and alien intervention. He shows how this history of AB intervention has been suppressed and challenges readers to reexamine the origins of notions like “divine revelation” to find common ground among the world’s cultures and religions.
