The series is expected to run for three years from the launch date, 4th May 2018. A new issue will be released every three months from the launch date. The series is expected to be completed in 12 issues.
The print version of the books will be distributed for free to school goers. Foresight Comics expects to visit at least one school from each of the provinces in Zambia to educate on climate change and distribute the comic books for free. Each school visit will be timed with the release of a new issue. We expect to distribute at least 1000 books with each school visit.
