Heroes of the World and Beyond

The Comic

Heroes of the World and Beyond brings a cast of superhero characters created since the artist's childhood to early adulthood and combines them all in to one big metahuman scenario. The idea was to bring the innocence of childhood creations to life with a mature art style and storytelling. The scenario focuses on the media aspects of modern heroism, selling the product of good vs. evil, while the reality of the morally grey areas provides the conflict between characters. Heroes can basically make a living as a celebrity, this doesn't mean it's an easy job, the bad guys are real enough and your performance in the field impacts on sales. There are some genuinely good guys out there, but it's hard to find one! Then there's the scientists and magicians poking about with dimensional travel. That's going to work out well, isn't it…

The Creator

Shane Rivett is a self taught artist who has loved comic book art since he can remember. He is the sole creator of HOTWAB and enjoys the whole process of comic making, except the flats. They can do one! Shane has previously attempted small press and webcomics in the past, the most popular one being Go­Bee. Outside of the webcomic world, Shane is a nerdaholic, and enjoys heavy metal, science fiction, classic TV and gaming. He'll probably live and die in his home town of Newcastle Upon Tyne where he lives in a pokey flat near a noisy motorway.
