Back in August we announced our Create a Superhero contest, inspired by our exhibition Heroes and Villains: The Battle for Good in India’s Comics, which opened this weekend. We asked for a short storyline and character ideas for a Los Angeles-based superhero comic, with the winner getting their work highlighted here on Unframed.
After sorting through our submissions, we all agreed that fourteen-year-old Dani Bowman from La Cañada, California, had the most entertaining comic. Other submissions had some terrific art or great stories, but Dani took a great stab at both. We liked too that Dani’s comic was inspired by current events affecting Los Angeles. Dani’s colorful comic made us smile, even during a time when some of our own co-workers were being evacuated from their neighborhoods. Our co-workers returned safely to their homes, so I guess we have Inazuma to thank.
