The Super Book for Superheroes

July 31, 2015Do it yourself (DIY), Storefront

Ah, being a superhero. Flying. Fighting crimes. Capes. And stretchy suits. If you’ve ever entertained the idea of being one (who hasn’t really…), give Jason Ford‘s The Super Book for Superheroes book a gander. Learn to draw villains, create superheroes and pair them up with a sidekick, fill out scenes with special superpowers, or colour in one of the pop out masks. Don’t worry, there’s a sticker sheet, too. We’ve coloured in this paper figure, and are still inspired by his look of sheer determination (it’s unreal).

The Super Book of Superheroes by Jason Ford. $20, available at both locations.
