Hey there Sovereignteers, here's
an update on just what we at
Sovereign Comics have been up
to lately, as we march further
ahead into 2020 lots of
partnerships are being formed
under the cover of darkness,
which we will bring to light in
due course. Meanwhile the team
had a very good time making
connections at Brent's "The
Power Of Wellness" conference.
Our team arrived by the early
hours of a crisp morning of
Wednesday 5th February in the
heart of Wembley at the Brent
civic centre, just outside of the world famous Wembley Stadium.
Our team arrived by the early hours of a crisp winter morning Wednesday 5th February in the heart of Wembley at the Brent civic centre just outside of the world renowned stadium.
A spread of tea and biscuits were laid before us as we began to set ourselves up for a show case like nothing the world has seen. The third member of our team Earl Newman our Director of Community Partnerships known for his outstanding work across communities nationwide joined myself and Dean Richards in a conversation about the power of our edutainment approach to social issues, and the progress that could be made from the day’s event.
Our banner stood firm and tall as we displayed our first educational comic book on obesity, ready to engage with anyone who dared to stray the path of the Sovereign Knights. Composing ourselves shortly after breakfast, we looked out to the neighbouring stands to see who we might form a sovereign alliance.
As the show began, we were taken aback by the collective effort of Brent council, (We have Counsellor Hirani of and Madeline Rose Brent council to thank for the invitation). We heard from representatives of the NHS including Sherwin Mauricio, a sincere and powerful speaker who spoke of the workshops they are providing for young people. We heard Louise Gear, from the women's football association speak about the women's England football team the Lionesses, who spoke about breaking the barriers and rallying support for the most talented rising stars of women’s football in a tournament taking place in 2021 and their hopes for the future of the game.
As the show gained momentum and energy was high from thought provoking presentations and informative slides aiding members of the NHS amongst others we began to strike while the iron was hot and began networking exploring the possible synergies we undoubtedly had with the proactive hopefuls in the room
Me and my team spoke with teachers from several schools that day, Capital city academy, Park lane primary school, West London free school and an educated teacher named Lander Bosch from Cambridge university.
We also had the pleasure of speaking with Raj Nath from Middlesex cricket on his life journey and how he inserts virtues into his young children using the power of cricket.
Myself and the team conferred on the success of the event, and the important steps Sovereign Comics will make with our approach of combining fun and education, when two young 16 to 17-year-old girls approached our table. Inquisitive and quietly excited about the publications displayed at our stall.
The Super Healthy Comic Is available to buy NOW!
They told us that our approach to hard-line issues such as knife crime and obesity was fun and amazing exclaiming that they knew lots of young people who would love our educational comics. As a token of our appreciation we allowed the two young girls to get a read of our yet to be released comic book Metallichron the Sterling knight and the feedback was phenomenal.
More and more people began to flock to our table, books were sold, people were happy, and all in all it was a productive day of making new allies. We look forward to seeing Brent again in all its splendour.... another mountain climbed a job well done as myself and the team flew our proud and noble flag high.
