We are proud to announce that we are now officially releasing all 16 covers (1 main cover and 15 variant covers) of Focus Comic for online purchase.
This is the main cover featuring the original design sketch of Focus by Yvonne Wan, the sole creator of Focus. Focus is seen here wearing a light bending suit which resembles a disco ball with cubist contours. The light bending suit manipulates light in many ways. Focus is completely human underneath and posses the power of precognition which is tied to his autism. Focus has an inbuilt visor which provides him with data. He is able to focus in on the data and calculate probabilities in his mind effectively due to his autism. Subsequently, the power of foresight gives him the ability to prevent bad things from happening as a hero.
Yvonne Wan is a social cultural anthropologist who studies autistic families. She recently produced a short documentary about autism which can be viewed on international TV. Her mission is to entertain readers on a mass scale and remove the stigma associated with autism. She believes that this social program will unite the community by promoting greater representation of autistic talent in the media and comic book industry; a culture of inclusion and provide hope to those affected by autism. This program demonstrates that people with autism can contribute in society in meaningful ways with the help of a supportive community. This project is already transforming and saving lives through the social work it has done so far. We have donated 118 comic books to autistic kids and hope to donate more soon.
Yvonne is also the writer and one of the artists within this comic, and also coaches the interns with autism with the help of certified art teacher Douglas Hebert.
Legendary Paul Mounts, most famously known for working on Spiderman is a contributing colorist for Focus. It was a big privilege to have Paul Mounts color this original design sketch which has symbolic significance in marking the birth of this autistic hero that will unite the community with hope and positive social change. It was also a big privilege to have Paul Mounts color the opening scenes of Focus, plus some covers for issue 1.
