Sumner commented: "ComicBooks for Kids is a wonderful charity founded by Mark Weiss that does amazing work getting comic books into the hands of children in long-term hospital care on both sides of the Atlantic. Myself and my co-producers Kenric Regan John Horsley have always admired Dickens' timeless seasonal message of empathy & civic responsibility, and thought 'what better way to underline & amplify ComicBooks for Kids' mission than to return to the words of Charles Dickens himself, the great believer in human society pulling together?' Please visit their website, please check them out and please do what you can to help."
