This week's edition (cover dated March 21) of People features a three page spread on Real Life Superheroes titled "Superheroes Among Us." (page 92-94) The article gives a brief run down on what a RLSH is and features mini profiles (in a sidebar titled "The Superheroes Next Door") on Dark Guardian, Nyx, DC's Guardian, Motor-Mouth, Life, and Phantom Zero.
They also thrown in speculation from myself on the variety of people who make up the RLSH banner and a snappy quote for good measure- "They don't want to admit it, [but] it's fun to dress up." I guess I said.
The article isn't on People's site, but the article has been reassembled at www.reallifesuperheroes.org HERE.
The article is very visually dynamic, no doubt about it- but I was kind of surprised at the brevity of the article. It was very short and kind of made me scratch my head- it took three writers months and months...for this?
Not that I'm complaining- it is what it is. Peoples is peoples.
TOMORROW AND WEDNESDAY: A firsthand account from Knight Owl on Seattle meet ups revolving around the recent Emerald City Comic Con.
*Fun fact: Pierre-Elie chose to take the photo at this particular spot in Chinatown because of the VW Bug in the background to the left. He said that he equates San Francisco with hippies driving VW Bugs in his mind.
