Become a Superhero!

At the Book Release Party for Super on November 9, guests will walk in and be transformed into a Superhero with complimentary capes, Superhero logos, masks, and more!

If you’re not able to make it to the book release party, there are still many ways in which you, too, can experience a transition into a Superhero lifestyle!

1. Turn your phone into a Super phone by downloading a Super mobile phone background image, designed by Super book designer Charlie Potter.

2. Turn your computer into a Super computer by downloading a Super desktop background, also designed by Charlie Potter.

3. Photoshop images of your own by adding the Super logo and other official designs to your images. Download a set of Super assets here (for personal use only–you may not sell or distribute works made with these assets). Here’s a low-resolution preview of the assets:

Just putting the logo on a sign is hilarious enough (see example 1 and example 2), but the following is an example of someone going way overboard (in a delightfully positive way):

    I love the Super logo. Just love it. Wish it were widely used – especially in NYC. Hmmmm…. maybe I should have a hand in that?

    Or perhaps in Greece…. Heheh. I’ve got some more pushing to do for that.

    Oh, and we’ve been experimenting with spray paint on clothes, with the Super logo as a stencil. Works pretty well, though it does depend on the type of fabric….

    Really Aaron, those of us who do have super powers do not need to costume shop faux costumes.

    Ha! Excellent point.

    True, it’s not necessarily a “need”…but it’s going to make for a very interesting party (though our costume materials are primarily non-costume shop–very classy stuff for sure–I mean, my parents made most of it!).

    Looks like a cool book, man. Well done. I’ll have to get myself a copy.

    Thanks, David! Yes, that’s exactly what it is, though the recipe is sometimes hard to follow. You may have to read between the lines. And stuff. Some of the ingredients are tough to track down, too, like “invulnerability”.
