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.
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.
The Creators Involved
Below are some previews of the amazing work you can see in the anthology and creators who made them.

We are offering you not only the chance to obtain the new Anthology (digital and physical) but also the chance to send comic making kits to children in hospital. All pledges from £10 and above will send a varying amount of kits.
Each kit contains everything a child needs to create their own comic book. To find out more about the kits you can read all about them over on our website http://littleheroescomics.co.uk/the-kit/
New Extra Reward!
The amazing guys over at ComicHaus.com have reached out and offered a free 14 day trial for their new App being dubbed the Netflix of comics. This is being offered to every backer who contributes £3 or more (but please bear in mind that the offer is only available once our Kickstarter campaign has ended).
For the variant cover, we have worked with the talented artist Darrell Thorpe who can be found at the following URLs.

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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
