Shadow Jumpers

When the sun’s shining, Jackson gets a lot of questions about the way he’s dressed. It’s not that he wants to be completely covered up, but there’s really no choice when you have EPP. Though he often gets funny looks and questions from strangers that leave him feeling out of place, when a mysterious UV Man breaks loose in his hometown, he soon realizes living with EPP might just have given him the super power he needs to save the city!

Shadow Jumpers was developed in collaboration with the United Porphyrias Association as a resource for children (of all ages) based on an evidence-based publication on psychosocial issues in erythropoietic protoporphyria (EPP).
