At Backroom Comics we create stories with the ultimate goal of providing an enjoyable experience for our readers. When our audience has walked away having been thoroughly entertained, we’ve done our jobs. We have started with our two short stories preluding the events of our first two series “Centurion” and “Specter” (full series currently in development). “Centurion” is the story of the strongest hero the world has ever seen. This prologue explores the thrilling origin of what led him to dawn the cape. “Specter” is a coming of age tale exploring a superpowered young adult who just wants to be seen. But he possesses the supernatural ability to become unseen. We are extremely excited to be crafting stories that can provoke thought while most importantly preserving the tons of fun that comics have the great potential to be.

Saving Jane empowers survivors of all forms of modern day slavery and human trafficking to live the life that they want to live. We work with national and global organizations to produce and distribute graphic novels (comic books) that teach about human trafficking – what it is, what it looks like, what to do when you see it, and how people fall victim to it. In this easy to follow graphic novel format, young people learn to identify, see and avoid the red flags of predatory behavior. Saving Jane is committed to ending all forms of these crimes through raising of the public’s awareness, education, the transformation of lives of impacted individuals, and the creation of systems, technology and policies to protect and support impacted individuals or prevent the formation of social conditions conducive to trafficking.
