Erik Walks-on-Air is, of course, a flying hero. In fact, he’s what I think of as a pure flying hero– he doesn’t use technology or magic, and he doesn’t have “flight” as just one item on a list of mighty … Continue reading
The twelfth* of the fifty superheroes is the mighty Man-O-Taur. And I have mixed feelings about him. Not about the drawing, which I quite like (doing the whole thing with the scritchy-scratchy pen is always a fun technique) nor about … Continue reading
