30 Dec Is that a Cell Phone in Your Leotard? — How Superheroes Use Social Media
Posted by Rebecca Blake on December 30, 2013
Ed Shems, the illustrator behind EdNedFred(and former Boston Guild President), has answered a question for today: How would superheroes use social media? Shems’ answer spans the world of social media, from picture sharing to status updates. For example, in the superhero universe, Batman pauses during a particularly satisfying bust to take a selfie, Superman is outed as Clark Kent when his cell phone responds to a text from Lois, and Spiderman (poor Spidey!) doesn’t have many Facebook Likes.
The series started as a doodle in Shems’ sketchbook, and took on a life of its own. Shems is selling prints of his series on Etsy. We hope there’s more to come — after all, surely Wonderwoman is on Google+.
