Father creates superhero with Down Syndrome - Live Action News

Father creates superhero with Down Syndrome

It would be an understatement to call Chip Reece a comic book aficionado. He writes comic book reviews at StashMyComics.com and even creates his own comics…when he’s not being a social worker or spending time with his son, Ollie.

Ollie has Down Syndrome, and was the inspiration for Chip’s graphic novel, Metaphase.

Chip wanted to share his love for superheros with Ollie, but couldn’t find a series whose superhero had Down Syndrome like Ollie. So he created his own.

Chip hopes that his superhero with Down Syndrome will help readers see past the limitations of individuals with special needs, and focus on their super abilities. He says that new parents will be surprised by how much their children with Down Syndrome will be able to do.

Chip crowdfunded Metaphase through Kickstarter, raising over $9,600 after setting a goal of just $6,000. The additional funds raised allow the book to be published in full color.

Dear Reader:

Stories like the one you just read transform hearts and minds.

For example, one of our followers, Ross, messaged us and commented:

“I began to question my pro-choice views after reading articles about Live Action…Live Action is primarily responsible for my becoming Pro-Life through their well-thought-out, scientific information and the emotionally and uplifting stories of real people with real experiences in saving the lives of their children regardless of what others might say.”

Knowledge is power and CAN open eyes to SEE the truth. And, YOU can provide the spark to transform someone’s mind, just like Ross.
