The project is in collaboration with Disney and Child Life Council, and together, the companies have delivered a number of care packages featuring other big Marvel names, like Captain America and Iron Man.
Guardians of the Galaxy Custom Edition No. 1 is also available to read online.
The comic is inspired by “the challenges kids face during or after a hospitalization or treatment,” when kids may feel as if they’re outcasts, or don’t fit in. Guardians of the Galaxy Custom Edition No. 1 aims to prove there is “nothing shameful about needing help from friends, family, or professional caregivers.”
