Experience the escapades of iconic superheroes with this pumped-up collection of international artworks in a variety of media. As contemporary idols, superheroes provide a rich source of inspiration for artists around the world. My Hero! celebrates and re-envisions the possibilities that exist when you have a magic cape, lasso, or some superhuman power that changes everything.
