  • GUEST BIO

    Yvonne Wan is a certified social-cultural anthropologist and sole creator of Focus Comic. Yvonne is an award-winning artist, broadcast documentary filmmaker, writer, and communications planner. Former employers include Cartoon Network, Saatchi & Saatchi and Ogilvy and Mather. Yvonne is passionate about social projects that unite communities together. Autism awareness is an issue that is close to Yvonne’s heart which is why she created Focus, an action-adventure horror comic that features an autistic superhero. Focus features an internship program where certified art teacher Douglas Hebert and Wan coach autistic interns to help the students fulfill their creative potential and get published. Community outreach events have become an integral part of their social cause initiative. The program removes the stigma associated with autism and transform lives. The project has received celebrity endorsements from various well-known actors. Tony Todd is Focus Comic’s goodwill ambassador. He appears within the comic as a character called Thato and is the official voice of Focus too. Tony Todd will be supporting Focus Comic at FanX this year. He will also be attending the Focus Comic panel as a special guest speaker.
