Calling All Heroes


A good portion of my youth was spent watching reruns of the campy Adam West Batman TV show, or filling notebooks with sketches of Michael Keaton wearing the cape and cowl. I even dug out this vintage drawing—dated '93—to verify my lifelong geek credentials.

Unlike some childhood properties that I have since aged out of (He-Man, anyone?) my love of Batman and superheroes has grown up with me—inspiring me to create a new photopolymer stamp set: Calling All Heroes (item 138002).

This versatile set is like having a fully-stocked utility belt of iconic comic book imagery. It includes an alphabet, burst shapes, a tileable cityscape and halftone pattern, and a variety of elements to recreate your favorite hero—or piece together an original creation. What would Dick Grayson look like with Clark Kent's glasses and Tony Stark's goatee? Get this set and find out!

Use the alphabet to stamp a custom POW!, ZAP!, or whatever super-sayings you can dream up. The Word Bubbles Framelits Dies (item132968) can also provide great accents for your comic-themed projects (although they don’t directly coordinate).

As the father of a little girl who loves donning capes and masks just as much as her older brother, I’m well aware that superheroes aren't just for boys anymore. I made sure this set could be easily adapted for both boys and girls.


Well, what are you waiting for? Grab Calling All Heroes today, and stamp out evildoers everywhere!
