Why Anomaly 23?
Anomaly 23 is a comic with cause. Beyond entertaining readers, Anomaly 23 is a socially conscious story that pushes the boundaries of the norm. We challenge readers’ preconceived notions of underrepresented groups by unapologetically bringing them to the forefront and, by crafting our story with these groups in mind. In 2016, the US census reported that almost 1 in 5 Americans live with some sort of disability. We here at Rune Comics felt that media content today fell far short o f reflecting an accurate depiction of the world we live in. As a result, there are large swaths of the population left without a hero to call their own. That is why we decided to create a comic with disabled heros to fill this gap left by a marginalizing society.
