About Us

Distributing comic making kits to children through hospitals and healthcare organisations across the UK.

Little Heroes Comics is a UK based charity that creates and distributes comic making kits to children through hospitals and healthcare organisations across the UK.

The charity started in March 2017 when its founder Aaron Rackley wanted to give back to the hospital that helped him during his own time battling cancer in late 2013. He set up a JustGiving account and set a target of £1000 with a plan to create 100 comic making kits.

The support and the feedback from not just the medical field but also the comic book community was so great that Aaron decided to form the charity officially and set out to find funding to create more.

Little Heroes has been alive for over a year now and has so far raised over £10,000 which has enabled them to send over 700 kits out. Fundraising for Little Heroes is a combination of generous donations form individuals and grants from the government, however Little Heroes has just released its own Anthology. The First Anthology ‘Strength’ is a selection of stories all based around the title’s theme. The pages are filled with stories from various creators who have donated their work for free to enable the Anthology to come to life. It was recently successfully funded via Kickstarter and is now available to purchase from the Little Heroes online store.

Little Heroes is now working on their second Anthology and continuing to send out comic making kits to children.
