Bergen and Kantor Play with the Hero Genre in 'Magpie' #1
On January 31st, 2016, writer Andrez Bergen and artist Frantz Kantor are launching a new superhero series in the pages of the Australian comics anthology Oi Oi Oi! Their series, Magpie, offers a humorous take on a superhero world, and the art that's been released thus far introduces an unlucky superhero with the familiar name of 3D-Man. Kantor's art is nothing like what we're used to in traditional superhero comics. The figures are highly exaggerated, but the art has a three-dimensional quality, which creates a look reminiscent of Pixar's The Incredibles. There's also something very reminiscent of Don Simpson's Bizarre Heroes in the design and character of 3D-Man.
