Comic Book Characters and Diversity

We’re very pleased here at Jump. In the last few months, several of our favourite comic book characters have been changed and redesigned. This isn’t just about new costumes.

Make Your Own Interactive Story!

Find out how to make your own interactive story with Jump! Mag and storyteller Justine de Mierre.
