In the decades long line of fan-made art surrounding the wonderful world of superhero comics, this new collection from artist Andy Fairhurst contains some of the most creative work we’ve seen yet. Showcasing 19 simple yet stunning images of superheroes and villains in their youth practicing for the greatness they knew would lie ahead, this work blends creativity with a heaping dose of nostalgia. Not only is the artwork great, but you can’t say that you never tried to do the same thing. I mean, what 9-year-old didn’t want to have some super powers? No one. Check out a couple of my favorites below and be sure to click over to Fairhurst’s DeviantArt page to see the rest.
