Charismagic creator Vince Hernandez will write, while Siya Oum will handle the art. This isn't the first time Aspen Comics has done something like this. Back in 2011,  Aspen Comics donated the proceeds from Fathom #1: Against All Odds to the National Wildlife Fund. The digital-only comic will hit Comixology on November 21, while fans who prefer the Iverse Comics App will be able to purchase a copy on an undisclosed date.

Press Release:

 

Aspen Comics is set to release Charismagic: Sparkles, a special Charity Issue Digital-Exclusive 11-page short story from the universe of their critically acclaimed, magical-adventure series Charismagic on November 21st . Aspen has also pledged to donate all of their proceeds for this issue to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.


Featuring the harrowing origin of the popular talking cat Sparkles from the pages of Charismagic, this all-new one-shot issue, Charismagic: Sparkles, is written by series creator Vince Hernandez and fully illustrated by series cover artist Siya Oum. Hernandez discusses the project further:


“Our fans and new readers have been so overwhelmingly supportive of Charismagic and Aspen in general, so we wanted to give something back, and more specifically to those in need. We felt the Make-A-Wish Foundation was the perfect organization to help make this happen. Charismagic at its core is about heroic people overcoming great challenges and finding true courage in the face of adversity, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation adheres to these principles tenfold with their cause. It was a perfect fit for us. As well, artist Siya Oum is a hero in my book for taking on the entire project pro bono because she believed in the cause as much as we do. We really hope people will enjoy the magical yarn we’ve created.”


Charismagic: Sparkles will arrive exclusively on Comixology on November 21st, with a sale price of $0.99, and will also be available on the Iverse Comics App with a date to be announced shortly. For more information on the Make-A-Wish Foundation please check www.wish.org and for more information on Aspen Comics please see www.aspencomics.com and www.aspenstore.com.
