I have recently been asked to be the human image of a comic book character. The name of the comic book is the Tobacco Avengers. It is one of the few minority sensitive comic books, aimed at educating our youth about the dangers of tobacco usage and promoting healthy lifestyle choices.
This Wednesday I met a young boy name Justin while waiting on my car to be repaired. I began to share with him about this comic book. I said to him, "do you like comic books" and he said "yes." I said, "would you believe I am the human image of a comic book character?" He said "no." I responded, "well, i am." "Would you like to see?" He replied "Yes." Of course i showed him the book and trading cards. He was so excited he wanted to look in it. I asked him if he could read and he said, "not very well." So we sat and read together. After-wards he said, "are there more books?" My response was "yes." He said, "how can I get the others?"
Herein lies the problem and the reason I'm sending out an email blast. Tobacco Avengers comic books are not sold in retail markets, only to prevention programs and after school youth organizations. Doc & AJ Comics have reached out to all of the Tobacco Prevention Specialist in the state of Florida. And has gotten little response. When I finished telling a friend the story I'm telling you now, she said "send me some information, I know people who would love to be apart of that!"
I have personally concluded, if we as a community are to educate, empower and equip our young people to live healthy and prosperous lives, than we better pull together and make it happen. Who has time to play politics? Maybe once they see, we as a community are serious about the health and prosperity of our younger generation; they will catch on and join on. So I am asking everyone I know in the business community, civic organizations, hospitals etc. to help us in our effort to provide fun, quality tobacco awareness information to those who want and need it.
For more information about how you can help or share with someone who can and would like to be a Tobacco Avenger sponsor, please contact me. If you would like to partner with Doc & AJ Comics to bring Tobacco Avengers to your community, county or state please email me for more information. Thank you in advance for your time and continued support!
