Escape Monday: Superhero Past / Present Silhouettes

khoahosuperheroespaspresent1What a weekend Party People! Checked out the White Collar Boxing event, Nothing But Trouble on Saturday night – was flippin AWESOME! Will hopefully have a post about it up tomorrow.

In the meantime, here’s something nice and easy to digest to ease you into your Monday. California-based artist Khoa Ho has done a series of posters he calls Superheroes – Past / Present that are pretty badass.

The silhouettes sum up who these characters are at their core and allude to the past difficulties that they’ve struggled with and overcome to become the characters we know and love. It’s pretty cool, but I reckon the same series with Supervillians would be way more interesting.

Free Comic Book Day Hell’s Yeah!

Me and comic books go way back.

When I was about six years old, I went to stay with my crazy aunt and uncle for a few weeks while my folks were on holiday and basically had the time of my life.

 

 

Every day my uncle would arrive home with a bag of Tomato Sauce chips and two comic books tucked under his arm for me.

I still remember lying on the floor in the lounge of that mad, mushroom-shaped house, happily munching on the chips while my grubby red-stained fingers turned the pages hungrily.
