We need to raise a minimum of $5,000 to publish the digital and paper issue in nine languages (Chinese; English, Japanese, German, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, French & Italian).

We have created a Commercial; a First Edition Comic Cover, Sample pages, and Short animation film trailers in 9 different languages. Celebrities such as Tony Todd, Jesse Kove and Bryan Dodds have volunteered their voices as actors for the short animation film trailer which will be released at Tucson Comicon. Celebrities who support Focus Comic include: Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean), Lisa Marie Varon (WWE), Gail Kim (WWE), Jed Rees (Deadpool), Randy Rogel (Animaniacs), Ming Chen (Comic Book Men) and others.
