“Look! Up in the air! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…not at all who you think.” While doing some Fall cleaning I came across the characters you’ll find below. I developed these characters for a Children’s Cartooning Workshop that I led many years ago. They were meant to spark some ideas for the kids and to help them develop their own interesting superheroes. As you can tell, the characters didn’t have to be serious.


I can’t recall where the idea originated for the Blue Fly but I thought a friendly, if somewhat inept superhero might be a laugh for the kids. Of course, what’s a superhero without a sidekick?


Is it just me or could these two make a cool cartoon? I hope you got a chuckle out of the misadventures of the heroically-impaired duo. If you’d like to see more let me know. Perhaps it’s time for these insect-inspired crimefighters to fly again!

In the meantime, feel free to check out our other stories, the fantasy-adventure graphic novels of The Sorcerer’s Children trilogy or the sci-fi action of The Adventures Of Astrodog“. They’re available through the store on our web site. Join the Adventure!
