“When my publisher reached out to me and discussed his idea about creating comics detailing the lives of soccer players, I was intrigued. Soccer – as Americans call it – is the most popular sport in the world! I felt a lot of pressure to get the stories and histories right. It was nice to have the help of artists who know and love the sport to make the books look great!” “We knew we wanted to do the sport justice. A comic book like this should inform and entertain readers. That’s why I loved writing about some of the greatest players of all time.” Said writer Michael Frizell.
“As a reluctant reader, I found the comic book form easy to access, so I always believed comics could both entertain and teach,” said publisher and creative force Darren G. Davis.
