Rebekah Rhoden Contributor

By Rebekah Rhoden in New Design on Friday 20 July 2012

With all of the superhero movies coming out this Summer, I think this poster series by Poland-based designer Alex Litovka is keeping right up with the trends. Each poster is of a cityscape with a superhero in the shape of that superhero’s logo. The minimalistic design and recognizable imagery tell a clear and concise story of each of these six characters.

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Saturday 19 May 2012

With The Avengers getting everyone in hyperventilating fanboy and fangirl mode of late, it’s worth a reality check to revisit comic strips from the 40s to the last decade and look at the useless superpowers that superheroes have. We imagine the cosmetic surgery industry would take a huge interest in Spiderman’s chest expansion powers.

Nerdy Real-Life Superheroes

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Events on Saturday 30 January 2010

KoldcastTV ran a post recently on the twenty-three nerdiest Superheroes: ‘Superheroes, even the ones from other planets, represent the best aspects of humanity.

I’ve always liked the thought of a ‘peoples choice’ award. It means that the masses love you and that’s what counts right? That and winning something. Lucky Ben Newman received the People’s Choice Award at the Bristol Art Show in 2006. You can see why his work appeals — his bold graphic lines and creatures inspired by superheroes and rope swings are strong and instantly recognizable.
