Wakefield Lit Fest were looking for ways to promote literacy for children in the area, in conjunction with Trinity Walk Shopping Centre. As part of a collaboration with Chris Singleton, Leeds based poet and community artist, we came up with a simple concept that encouraged children to build a superhero character and develop their own comic. With the help of comic book artist Phil Dearman, each child chose their own powers, costume and mission whichI then photographed against our specially created 'Gotham' style backdrop of Wakefield. Chris then placed the images into a comic book format allowing the children to add speech bubbles, sound effects and captions to bring it to life. The comics were then printed for them to take home and the following week displayed on large advertsising screen of the shopping centre in a 'movie premier' event.
