Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, the Dark Knight, Hellboy. It seems like they were born for the silver screen, but these mighty superheroes started humbly, when an artist picked up a pencil and sketched out an idea.


Do you have an idea for the next colossal caped crusader? Then grab your pencil and head over to Saratoga Library for a “Draw your own Superhero” workshop on Friday, June 27. Professional comic book artist and Bed-Stuy resident N. Steven Harris will show you how it’s done. He’ll use his 17 years of experience drawing Batman, X-Men and his current series, The Fringe, to show you how to design characters, set up panels, break into the industry and more.


The kids’ program runs from 3 to 4 PM, followed by the young adult program from 4 to 5:30 PM. Just bring your imagination. And your pencil!
