The Documentary:

Sammie Cassell is more than just a comic book nerd...he's a real-life, unlikely hero. Over the past few years, he's developed a program of bringing comic books into elementary school classrooms and teaching youngsters about the wonderful world of comics. While opening children's eyes to fun and action packed adventures of Thor and Iron Man and Superman, Sammie's promoting literacy and stimulating young minds to expand their horizons by opening a book!

This documentary follows Sammie as he goes into the schools and not only teaches kids about reading comics, but shares the wealth and gives away issues from his own and donated collections.

We hope that this documentary can help shed some light on Sammie's efforts and possibly inspire others around the country to step up and follow his lead in encouraging a new passion for reading.

What We Need:

Between our various other projects including the horror-comedy, Hank vs. The Undead (also featuring Sammie Cassell) we here at Wreak Havoc Productions and Rose Lane Productions are tapped out of resources to finish this film.

Production began in May 2015, but in order to continue shooting and eventually edit the many hours of footage together, we need your help!  All contributions will go toward purchasing comic books and art supplies for the kids, new equipment and the editing expertise needed to get the job done.

The Impact

The plan for Sammie the Comic Book Man is to get it out there at as many comic conventions and film festivals across the US and North America as possible. Sammie himself plans to continue his efforts well past this film, but hopes to use the film to educate others on how to use this amazing medium to enlighten a new generation of young readers.

Risks and challenges

WREAK HAVOC PRODUCTIONS, LLC has partnered with ROSE LANE PRODUCTIONS to make "Sammie the Comic Book Man" a reality. We are looking for generous contributions to help offset some of the costs of production. We feel strongly that there is such a powerful story to be told that it will find an audience and the word will spread. Please consider being a part of this special project!
