Genie the Gene #1 comic coverGENIE THE GENE is on a mission to help kids!

Genie loves to help children learn by taking them on entertaining and educational adventures in which they witness first-hand, important facts and tips on a wide array of subject matter.

Genie's special talent is that he can help kids understand complex subject matter such as medical conditions (Cystic Fibrosis) or social issues (bullying) by showing them what it is, and explaining things at their level along the way.

With Genie as your friendly and energetic guide, material shown in these story-based adventures is better retained than in traditional educational content.

In Genie's first comic series (titled GENIE THE GENIUS) we see how Genie is discovered and how he becomes friends with Dr. Sally Miles. In the three-issue story we are taken on some wild adventures. In the end we see how Genie and Dr. Miles get started together in their mission to help kids. You can read all the comics FREE right here, at GenietheGene.com/comics
