Encountering the issue of not being able to find superheroes made me think it was time to create superhero stories, costumes, and action figures that represent children with different abilities. As I put together my creative team I was introduced to writer Chris Hendricks. Chris is a passionate writer, musician and public speaker. At the age of four he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. I knew that with his talent and passion, Chris, like no one else, could write this story from a voice of experience.
With my creative team in place, I formed Rune Comics. My goal is for children and adults to read these stories and be so excited by the characters and storyline that they will see the characters as relatable with vulnerabilities just like them. With this in mind, the team produced Anomaly 23; a story about six amazing teens that have typical teenage problems. They struggle with parents, friends, jobs, homework, crushes, and just wanting to hang out at the mall. Issue 1 will grab you, and take you on a journey with teens that go from being teens with conditions to being superheroes who risk it all to save their friends, and the world from destruction. As their story evolves, it will challenge perceptions, and make it so readers don’t have to be brave to be themselves.
