Marvel is proud to announce the release of Captain America: A Little Help, an all-new story free to all fans via the Marvel Comics App (for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch) and Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited in an effort to help raise awareness of suicide prevention. Written by Dr. Tim Ursiny, PH.D., CBC, RCC and illustrated by Nick Dragotta, this powerful story shows what happens when one man on the verge of suicide is drawn into a chance encounter with Captain America—and he may be the Avenger’s only hope! This story is also available in I AM AN AVENGER #5, in comic stores nationwide today—both digital and print versions include contact information for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

“Super heroes fight a lot of battles, but there are few more important than combating suicide,” said Tom Brevoort, Senior Vice-President of Publishing. “That’s why we’re making Captain America: A Little Help available for free via our digital comics outlets. If even one person calls this number instead of doing something very tragic, we know that means we succeeded.”

You can check out Captain America: A Little Help right now on the Marvel Comics App and Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited or pick up a copy of I AM AN AVENGER #5 at your local retailer.

To contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, please call 1-800-273-TALK or visit www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org

Found it to the point and powerful. If it helps even one person then it'll have been worth putting out. Hope it does.
