More About the Author

I've been drawing since I was 5, and I've been a professional artist primarily drawing comic books for Marvel and DC Comics for over 35 years. I never thought I'd also become a writer, but in 2006 I wrote and illustrated a humorous children's alphabet book, Superhero ABC, featuring all original superheroes and it's published by HarperCollins. I also edited and wrote 12 quarterly issues of Rough Stuff magazine, about the preliminary art of comic books, from 2006-2009. I currently teach part-time at the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design in Lancaster, accept commissions, and work on various other projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Super Hero ABC! 12 Nov 2009
By Zeke
A group of children at the Pre-School where I work had become interested in super heroes and this book was bought as part of a 'Super Hero' story/interest basket. It has since become a firm favourite with this group and many of the other children, all of whom are fascinated with the various powers that the super heroes possess. It is so good to have found an educational book that actually reflects the interests of children, especially boys, in the 3-5 years age group. It also gives a good 'balance' to the children's play - boisterous super hereoes can learn about letters! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to both Pre-School groups and to children at home and it would certainly also be suitable for older children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for discussion and learning 5 Mar 2011
I bought this to stimulate ideas for our topic on Superheroes at school and what a fantastic resource it proved. There is a new superhero for each letter of the alphabet with lots of alliterative description about each. The illustrations are bright and bold and my class loved them.

This was a stimulus for lessons on alphabet work and to help the children invent and their own superhero. There is so much room for discussion and creativity.

This is wonderful book to share.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning with Superhero! 7 Feb 2011

Great idea to create alphabet superheros. Children love Superheros, especially boys. Learning with fun! My 4 years old holding and reading this book all the time. Highly recommended for children who just start to learn Alphabet.

3.0 out of 5 stars My 3 year old likes it. 28 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So I have given this three stars because I dont like it but I must admit that my three year old really likes it.
I have a number of problems with it, the main one is that it is just too american for small children to understand all the words (Jay walking, kindergarten etc) Also its supposed to be an ABC book and all the letters are in capitals, no lower case at all so not helpful for teaching. Some of the superheros are just bizarre and some are gross (vomit man!)
Quite cant work out what age group this is aimed at.
Its a great idea and could have been amazing but it falls quite far short of that (If you are looking for a great superhero story for young children try "The amazing adventures of Bumble Bee Boy")
