Crowdfunding Spotlight: Little Heroes Comics Charity Anthology #2

Little Heroes Comics is a UK based charity that sends comic making kits to children who find themselves in hospitals and healthcare institutes across the country.  Right now, they’re raising funds for their second anthology over on Kickstarter.

Following up on the successful first issue around the theme of ‘Strength’, the team are looking to raise the funds for the printing costs to get this new anthology made, which will be sold at various comic conventions and local events to spread the message of Little Heroes and give people a great way to support their cause.

With a great line up of indie British talent that includes the Etherington Brothers, Susie Gander, Jon Laight, Steve Tanner and more, this is well worth checking out, for a very good cause.

As an added incentive to backing the project, one special winner (picked at random from backers) will win the chance to have their family face off against another superfamily on a variant cover of the anthology.

Little Heroes are also offering backers not only the chance to obtain the new Anthology but also the chance to send comic making kits to sick children.

A donation from you could send a kit to a sick child. (Check the reward tiers on the Kickstarter page for further information).

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/
