“The Super Hero’s Journey is a genuinely moving treatise on the inspiration we can take from others, and an antidote for cynicism.” -Alex Ross, Fantastic Four: Full Circle
The Super Hero’s Journey is an adventure unlike any you have ever read. Imbued with the creativity, artwork, and heart of Patrick McDonnell, the beloved creator of the comic strip Mutts, this all-new graphic novel love letter features the classic Marvel super heroes including the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Black Panther, and Spider-Man, and is the synthesis of McDonnell’s positive, inspirational sensibility and Marvel’s blockbuster brand. Using the Marvel Universe as avatars, McDonnell muses on how comics changed his life and inspired him to become a cartoonist, instilling a moral sensibility that he carries through his work and his life.
Visually striking-The Super Hero’s Journey incorporates panels from classic Marvel comics as a tribute by McDonnell to his heroes-Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and the other creators of the Marvel Universe-alongside inspirational quotes from Eckhart Tolle, Thoreau, and others.
