The ZONED Comic Contest contest supports students who want to counter bullying by sharing their stories.
The comic book, based on the winning essay, was scripted and drawn into the current format by Marvel Custom Solutions.
Today, we celebrate the first issue entitled “Bullies in a Strange Land” which features the story of John Jeffery who suffered the effects of bullying and has subsequently healed from it.
"The ZONED Comic Contest has adeptly realized the appeal of weaving the personal stories and perspectives of others into exciting and easily accessible comic books produced by Marvel encouraging young children like mine to engage in a dialogue to address bullying and proposing workable solutions,“ says the second place winner, Richard Scott.
