Here’s a wacky-fun  post to share this amusing photo taken at the recent New World Comics’ SUPERHERO SCHOOL in Oklahoma City, OK. This is a bi-weekly event that occurs at a local comic book store where costumed Cosplayers teach little kids about superheroes. It’s a clever idea and the costumes are always extremely creative. The kids love it!

Anyways, shown here is our friend Kit Compton, a.k.a. Foxxikitten, dressed-up as the SHE-HULK and she is showing off her new most super-favorite book, BATMAN: DEATH BY DESIGN (DC Comics) written by Chip Kidd and illustrated by Dave Taylor!

Oh yeah, we should mention that our other friend, Ondry Dre Braggs (Marvel’s Iron Man War Machine) made a sneaky cameo appearance in this picture, ha ha!
