Over the past few months, the inspiring comic book art of Mark J Hiblen has touched hearts across the world – his more than 325,000 followers on social media include fans like Mark Hamill and Thor’s Chris Hemsworth. Hiblen has highlighted, in epic illustrations, through his beloved medium of graphic-novel art, just how important and heroic our brave Frontline workers have been in this time of Covid-19.

Now, here, is the ultimate edition to celebrate the year of the everyday heroes, who changed our way of seeing the world of work and heroism – a picture book without words, timeless, universal, and finally, both heart-breaking and ennobling. Frontline Heroes is the book to give to anyone who has known and appreciated these heroes, or who wants to recall the best part of ourselves, in the worst of times. With an Introduction by comic legend Geof Isherwood (Marvel illustrator of Dr Strange, Thor and other classic titles).

Featuring frontline workers battling and defeating the Coronavirus – in hospitals, in shops, and on our streets.

With over 50 full-colour illustrations, and black and white sketches.

88 pages, High-Quality paper, Hardcover.

This first-run limited edition of 1000 copies is both an historic document of who we are, and a beautiful work in its own right. One of the books of 2020.

The publishers will be donating 25% of all sales profits (gross net, including costs deductions**) to support frontline workers for this special edition.

We will publicly post end of each royalty year the amount given, and where and to who, on this page. We do not wish to 'enrich' ourselves at the expense of those who work and suffer, but to make sure each is paid according to their due, fairly and proportionately.

It is our belief this book is a valuable historical document, and celebration, of important roles and members of society not always or usually accorded the respect they deserve. We are proud to be a very small but heartfelt part of the raising of awareness of the importance of frontline workers in our communities.

*We have been having difficulties with our international shipping orders due to changes in cost due to weight of the book and changes in courier prices. We apologise to all international customers who have had refunds and we invite you to reorder with us or otherwise purchase your copy via mainstream channels when it is officially launched. We can guarantee that no more refunds will be made if you do reorder with us and we are very sorry for this inconvenience; the Royal Mail shipping costs are very high now.

**As a small press, the rest of the sales will go towards paying the creator of this book for their talent and labour, and also, the people who have manufactured, designed, edited, proofread, shipped, published, and distributed, the book, in the UK, Holland and Italy.
