Welcome to ZIP Comics! We’re excited to show you the world we’ve been building over the past several months. It’s taken us some time to get here, but the story we’ve put together for this first issue of Ricochet! is one we hope you’ll enjoy and learn from as the story unfolds.
In fact, we hope you’ll learn from all of our comics and from the blogs and discussions on our website and social media pages. At ZIP Comics, we believe that we do a better job of changing the world when we’re equipped with the language and concepts that enable us to make sense of its complex social issues. We’re here to help with that.
Over the next several weeks, we’ll release the pages of Ricochet! in which we’ll follow Jordyn Washington, a 15 year old girl who’s beginning life in a big city. She’s got some exciting adventures ahead and a lot of learning to do along the way. I’ve chatted with the writers and seen what they have in store for you. I’m stoked about the fun ride we have ahead.
You may have learned about us via a friend, a random search, or perhaps a sponsored media post. Whatever the case, we’re glad you’re here. We’re glad you’re reading this blog and we hope you’ll read our comic as well. Because changing the world doesn’t begin when an expert decides they’re going to do something. It begins when an everyday person like you decides that they’re going to do something and embarks on a journey toward expertise. We’re on that journey with you and we hope to stick with you as long as you’ll let us!
