Extra Activity Pages

The back of the magazine will be jam-packed with awesome extra activities for you to have fun with. Below is the first activity page in the book. Can you show us what General Punchy's origin story is?

What is Little Heroes Comics Charity and how are we teaming up? 

Little Heroes Comics is a UK-based charity, also founded by Fair Spark Books' founder Aaron Rackley, that creates and sends comic making kits to children in hospitals and other healthcare organisations throughout the UK.

We are teaming up to provide this magazine in all of the kits that they send outgoing forwards!

Stretch Goals

Thanks to you amazing bunch, we have had to add the stretch goals below.

Our first stretch goal is for the £1000 mark, at this stage we will be able to add an additional 4 pages to the magazine. These pages give you the template to use the skills you have acquired in the magazine to make your own comic.

Our second stretch goal will enable us to send each of our physical backers a 24pg artist sketchbook from our own magazine artist, Andy Hank. 

For our third stretch goal, we have teamed up with comic creator Nick Prolix. Nick is a Little Heroes veteran, having provided a 4-page short story in our first anthology. The A4 poster we will be giving to every physical backer features the amazing characters from that story.

Risks and challenges

We already have 12 of the 24 pages finished and Andy is working hard to get us to the finish line for a Feb release.

Sometimes unforeseen circumstances mean this could take longer, and we will keep you informed if there is any kind of delay!
