Mininature superheroes (and villains) at All-Star Comics

Quizzing, reading, drawing (the dinosaur didn't bite once)
Yesterday I took My Sister is a Superhero to Melbourne's Eisner award-winning comics shop, All-Star Comics.

They were launching their Kids Club, and the Queen Street shop was packed with tiny heroes and villains. There was face-painting, show-bags and guest writers (including Ned Collett, creator of Fabulous Tree Frog).

I began with a quick quiz ("Does Spiderman wear a cape?"), gave a drawing demonstration, then launched into a reading. The kids drew sketched some fantastic crime-fighting sisters, and yelled "SUPERHERO!" with verve.

A great morning of high geekery.
