Jetpulse Comics is the creation of Brooklyn born, comic book artist/writer, Led Bradshaw and his son Jacob who is on the autism spectrum. Just give Jacob 5 minutes and he’ll tell you everything there is to know about superheroes. His closet is full of costumes, enchanted hammers, magical capes and utility belts.
Autism has been a part of their lives since Jacob was 3 1/2 years old. Desperately looking for a way to communicate with Jake and help him learn, Led used his love of art and turned Jacob’s artwork into an exciting comic book learning adventure.
Jetpulse Comics is a unique “father-and-son” project that was created to uplift, encourage and raise awareness about children and other individuals all over the world who are on the autism spectrum. It also gives Jacob the opportunity to write his own comic book stories and shows others what life is like with autism.

“Me and Daddy have fun working together” - A talented young artist with autism became a comic book creator using his drawings and creative stories. Read Jacob’s interview with Inspiration Matters.
Jacob was diagnosed with autism at the age of four and has always been a huge fan of superheroes. So much so that he created his own superhero character at an early age based on himself through his creative drawings.
His father combined the superhero character and Jacob’s daily school lessons into flash cards to help and encourage Jacob. The father and son pair also incorporated the superhero character into JetPulse comics, a project to encourage and raise awareness about children and other individuals on the autism spectrum. This project allows Jacob to write his own comic book stories and shows others what life with autism is like. This project has also boosted Jacob’s self-confidence and improved his grades.
