DO YOU LOVE A CHILD WITH AUTISM?

Me too!

In fact, I love TWO kids with on the spectrum*, and I get to be their dad! And I know that autism is just the tip of the iceberg of what makes them fascinating, hilarious, and sweet, as well as always surprising, and sometimes challenging. I created the comic book MAX VELOCITY as my way of showing off the fact that what makes us different from each other is also what makes us awesome.

The comic is full of excitement without danger, superheroes without villains, and nobody is mean on purpose EVER. My goal is “emotional realism”: kids have big feelings, and sometimes they don’t overlap so well. They have to regulate themselves, and sometimes they need grown-up help.

MAX VELOCITY provides a perfect world for sensitive kids to visit and hang out where they can feel safe and have fun, and hopefully see themselves reflected back, although their reflection might have super speed and a cool costume.

I would love your support to help me cover the costs of creating MAX VELOCITY, such as software licenses, art supplies, and printing. Anything you contribute will be valued so so much.

*Honestly, I love ALL the kids with autism, but I have to admit to having a bias towards a couple of them
