Andrew and Sal created a graphic novel adaption of Joseph Smith’s First Vision. It is called Pillar of Light: Joseph Smith’s First Vision. Many young people are drawn to the graphic novel format; it is a powerful way to teach.

I have partnered with the talented and experienced artist Sal Velluto, who is creating the art and serving as art director. 2020 is the 200th anniversary of the First Vision and we have done a telling of the story that will reach young people in a new and profound way. We want to inspire the youth and to build their testimonies of the Prophet Joseph Smith.

We used details from all 4 accounts written by Joseph Smith as well as from those who heard him tell his experience firsthand. It includes details not previously shown in the current films and visuals.  We finished the book on March 26, 2020 and it is available to view for free at the link below. Print versions are available through Amazon. We are currently working on translating it into various languages for online and print.
