Welcome to Twelve Gates

Welcome to Twelve Gates!

Unite. Create. Deliver. Twelve Gates.

Unite artists.
Create manga.
Deliver the message.

Uniting artists to create manga and deliver a message about our awesome God!


Anyone may join the group!

However, please read about our vision first. We are not your ordinary group!

Also, keep in mind that we're a team here. Others help you, so please help others!

And if you join, be kind, in and out of the group. If you're a member, keep our name clean!


We accept only original artwork and pages based on your original manga (at any stage in development).

Both one shots and series with multiple chapters are acceptable.

Short manga strips (including 4-koma) are allowed but only if it is related to a larger original manga project.

Fan art is not allowed. Miscellaneous Christian images or comic strips, even if they are in the style of Japanese manga, aren't allowed.

Please visit some of our awesome affiliates for that!

When submitting, be sure to check out the details of each folder and make sure you submit to the right one. This is helpful not only for us, but it also makes sure people can help you the way you want to be helped.

Read here for guidelines on what is acceptable and what is not.

NOTE: There is a five submissions per day limit in any folder. The purpose of this is to keep from flooding inboxes in order to allow members to keep up with comments and such without being overwhelmed.


TG's favorites will serve as a collection of resources and tutorials for creating manga! If you know of any great resources you'd like to share, suggest them to our favorites!


Hey everyone!! It's time for our annual donation drive!

As you're probably aware, there is a cost to getting stuff done. We don't want to twist anyone's arm around here, so I'll try to keep this brief.

If you are able to give and want to give, that's awesome! Please give! God will use you to make this ministry stronger! If you're not able to give right now, we believe God will still get things done. Please pray for us! We appreciate any financial support and any prayer support we receive!

We would love to have you on this team, whatever position you can play!!

This year, we are asking for a bit more money, and I wanted to share with you why. We are constantly and effectively being attacked. We have been hacked and given nasty infections on more than one occasion, and our website was once even deleted. The first time, maybe that was just by chance. The second, third, and fourth time… Well, it's just my opinion that someone doesn't like what we're doing here and is trying to stop us.

We won't surrender.
We will fight back!

We're spending some extra money trying to be efficient and cost effective without leaving us vulnerable. We don't have any secrets here. Here's a list of what we're spending our money on:

Web hosting/domain name: 132.86
Forum ad removal: 59.40
Sucuri monitoring and cleaning: 89.99
Sucuri firewall: 119.88

We will keep trying to guard what has been entrusted to us by any means necessary!

Twelve Gates has come a long way since we started, and it's been such an honor and a privilege! We've seen God move people to believe in the impossible, we've seen God lead people to pursue their passions with great faith, and we've seen people who aren't super close to Christ begin poking around in what we're doing here.

We believe God will do even greater things than this in the years to come. We will keep uniting artists, creating manga, and delivering a message about our awesome God for as long as we're able. We believe that God will use what we're doing to impact lives, and we will continue making manga for the glory of our King.

Let's work together to make this happen.
Let's have another great year at Twelve Gates.
Let's fight for 2015!

(Oh, and for those who weren't aware... The September 2014 issue is available now! Go check it out!!)

So... I have this comic thing that I'd like to post, but, it's colored. Can I post it or not?
bbqbert Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, you can share them here! If they are manga pages, please make sure they go in the "Completed Works - Manga" folder, though.

"And in this I give advice: It is to your advantage not only to be doing what you began and were desiring to do a year ago; but now you also must complete the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to desire it, so there also may be a completion out of what you have."--2 Corinthians 8:10-11

then why are you not completing your manga? "but now you also must complete the doing of it"... just curious.

It's not born out of "giving up" or burning out...It has to do with the direction my life is taking and how God will use me. I think God used this time, but I don't think it's the longterm plan for my life. My desire and my intentions aren't there, and I just don't think it's what the big picture is for me. But to those who are called, and are wearing down in their calling: Don't give up.

nevermind me I just had hope that the manga would not end forever :/.
