Comic featuring the best Web and Print comic pros coming together to create a work for the benefit the victims of Japan's tragedies.

JAPAN NEEDS HEROES is a comic book featuring numerous creative talent from both the Webcomic and Print comic worlds coming together for a common cause.  100% of the profits for this book will go to benefit the victims affected by the tragedy in Japan.

The book's theme will be about uplifting stories of hope in the face of tragedy.

The funds will go to pay for the printing cost (which is being donated AT COST) and shipping costs... everything else will go toward the victims through the Japan Society an organization that sends 100% of our funds directly to those affected.

MORE REWARDS and LEVELS will be added as people come on and agree to more stuff.  So feel free to give BIG, you might be surprised at what you get!   And all pledges of $5 or more will include a downloadable version of the comic via comiXology!

More and more creative talents will be listed here as they confirm that they are on board.  Some listed people may be subject to change, so check back often for updated roster of talent.  Current creators include:
