A new US-produced comic book is addressing anti-gay bullying of teens head-on in an action-packed superhero adventure.
The Power Within, which will soon be sent free to interested teachers across America, shows shy gay boy Shannon escaping into his super-powered alter ego when the going gets tough.
The comic was first created as part of a 24-hour comic book challenge, where artists get together to create a new work in just one day.
