From MJ Hibbert:
We’re very pleased to announce that award winning artist John Allison has created some fantastic artwork for our show, “Total Hero Team”, appearing at this year’s Leicester Comedy Festival.
John is the creator of the long-running online comic series Bad Machinery, which won the prestigious “Best Comic” award at this year’s British Comic Awards ceremony. The first book collection of the story is being released in March by Oni Press, home of Scott Pilgrim amongst others.
“Total Hero Team” is a two man musical celebrating superheroes, performed by MJ Hibbett (and his friend Steve). The duo play all the parts using a range of hats and wigs – they sent photographs of themselves in these minimal costumes to John, who reverse-engineered them into comic characters, as can be seen on the attached image.
The show is appearing at The Criterion on February 8th and 9th at 7pm. For more details and larger versions of the artwork see the webpage at http://mjhibbett.co.uk/totalheroteam/forthcoming.php
