In 1962 Blocksom and his family returned to Japan to serve the Lord.

In 1981 he was led to build a mission to train laymen to do evangelism, plant churches, and produce the literature needed, so he founded International Chapel Ministries (ICM).

Blocksom also wrote and illustrated an in-depth article on the use of comics in evangelism for Japan Harvest magazine ("Your Message in 'Manga' Will Get Through! 4, 1987/88) and wrote This Way to Happiness in 1979, which was illustrated as a cartoon tract by Evan Wilson in 1991.

Blocksom continued to work at the production of cartoon tracts, including one on the "know-it-all" fish Kashikoi Sensei, an international training ministry which teaches the production and use of comics-style literature for evangelism and discipleship, in 1996.

Born 25 August 1930, James Blocksom was originally from Ohio USA.

After the Korean War, while serving as an optometry officer at the airforce headquarters in Tokyo in 1954, Blocksom became a Christian.

Two years later, he was asked to become director of the ministry. Ensign was known to many as the "Father of Modern Christian Comics Fandom." He was born in 1948 and born again in 1958.

He is married to wife Marian, a graphic designer who has collaborated with him on much of his work. After having some of his comics features published in fanzines in the late '60s, Ensign produced his first Christian comic, Tales of Antediluvia, in 1977 in the Campus Crusade print shop where he worked.

Since that time, seminars and workshops have been held on every continent except Antarctica. He is married, has three daughters, a son-in-law and two grandsons Frederick E. His talented older brother, who died tragically young, was his first and perhaps most influential artistic role model.
