New Comic Book Aimed at Easing a Child’s Hospital Stay

According to Marvel Editor and Custom Solutions Project Manager Mark Basso, as quoted in the article, “This year’s comic is all about friendship, camaraderie, and relying on other when you need help…There is nothing shameful about needing help from friends, family, or professional caregivers, and we wanted to underscore that them in the story.”
