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 variant cover D featuring line art by Malekith George, our Focus Comic art intern who has autism. Coaching by certified art teacher Douglas Hebert. Colored by legendary Paul Mounts who is most famously known for working on Spiderman. Malekith is one of the worlds youngest comic strip artists who has autism to get his comic art published and have his own variant cover. Malekith is one of the community page contributors where he drew a 4 panel story with the help of social cultural anthropologist Yvonne Wan, certified art teacher Douglas Hebert and professional colorist Paul Mounts. It was a great pleasure for everyone to help Malekith fulfill his creative potential. We thank Office Depot in particular for sponsoring our internship program and giving Malekith his own variant cover. Office Depot helped Malekith fulfill his dreams in becoming a published comic strip artist. Watch the following interview with Malekith to learn more about what the Focus project means to him:
Paul Mounts has a big heart towards autism awareness and acceptance and understands the importance of supporting social projects that promote community and inclusion.
