“The goal is to get people reading…simple. I was a reluctant reader growing up and comic books helped my reading skills. Comic books are not only for pop culture fun, but also can be used as a tool. Some of our biography titles are taught in schools”. said Storm publisher Darren G. Davis. “Working one-on-one with Julie on the Iron King, the book will be very close to the novel. I guess that is why I am so passionate about this project”.
