Electron Boy: Now in Comics!

Electron Boy
Electron Boy in real life
Here's a creative use of comics:

13-year-old Erik Martin was turned into a super-hero ("Electron Boy") for a day, as part of a Make-A-Wish program (he's got a rare cancer). This did some good for him, personally, and generated a great news story: "Local boy with cancer turns into a superhero for a day".

Artists inspired by his story, and his desire to be in a comic book, developed the Electron Boy comic, which can be viewed online for free, or ordered through CCP Comics for $5, at http://ccpcomics.com/electronboy/index.html (donations go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.)
