"Using Superheroes to Create Super Readers!"

Thursday, October 20, 2016

Bosler Memorial Library

12 Noon

Graphic comic book artist, Bob McLeod, has pencilled or inked all of the major heroes for Marvel and DC, including Spider- Man, The X-Men, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, GI Joe, Star Wars, The Hulk, and many more. He's best known for co-creating and illustrating The New Mutants, which will soon be made into a major motion picture.

Bob will talk about using superheroes to get kids interested in reading, and the pros and cons of them (some people consider them violent and sexist), and why he created his heroes to be the way they are. He will do some drawings to demonstrate some ways he designed his superheroes to be fun and non-violent.
