Here’s an interesting thing

Now, Yr. Humble Chronicler is no stranger to the world of Art. Why, only yesterday, I was sketched by a guy sitting next to me on the Tube who thought I was engrossed in my book (I wasn’t; it was a particularly boring book). Anyway, it is therefore something of a surprise that I haven’t blogged about this yet. Indeed, I understand it’s only up for another fortnight. Whoops.

Basically, a bunch of London teenagers take on superhero identities for a display in Charing Cross and Embankment Underground stations. Am I the only one who’d quite like to see a full length comic about these guys? I’m particularly curious about the dude who throws crocodiles at people. Excellent stuff, beats the hell out of Wolverine: Origins.
