About

Little Heroes Comics Charity Anthology #1

£2,617

126

Welcome to the first ever Kickstarter from us here at Little Heroes Comics. We are a charity based in the UK who create and distribute comic making kits to children fighting long-term illnesses.

So far to date, we have managed to distribute 150 comic kits and are currently in the process of sending out another 900 in the upcoming months. However, we do not want to stop there and we want to get kits into the hands of every child who has to spend time in the hospital.

In order to achieve this, we are offering you the chance to purchase our first comic book Anthology entitled 'Strength'.

The money raised here on this Kickstarter campaign is to cover the cost of getting the anthology printed and for the delivery cost of kits to children in the hospital.

The Anthology

This first of our anthologies is based on the theme 'Strength'.We sent out a call to arms on social media, and the many creators who contributed a short story were amazing. Here is a look at the cover by the talented artist Ross Burt who has also contributed an incredible 10-page comic to feature in this release.

Risks and challenges

For our comic reward, we already have the artwork ready to be sent off to the printers who we have worked with before. We have previously printed twice with this supplier and have never had any issues getting the quality and delivery speed we have asked for.

For the kits, these are already made and ready to be shipped out. We have sent over 150 kits so far and had no issues with delivery of these items yet.
