Any Comic Book Quilts?

Over on my other blog, Black Threads in Kid's Lit, I posted about African American comic books. Which, of course, had me thinking about quilts. I've always wanted to do a story featuring a comic book style. There's two angles to this:

1. Do Super Heroes quilt? (Can you see any one of the Random 5 by Roosevelt Pitt, Jr of Amara Entertainment quilting?)

2. What quilt story would a Super Hero tell?

If you have a moment, take a look at the Black Museum of Super Heroes - while there, I saw a comic book cover of a Black Superman and Supergirl. Have you ever seen a comic book quilt?

I read the Super Girl's name as Kyra, but it was really Kara. It's funny how the mind works.

How about comic book store owners who quilt? Comic books manage to creep into a few of my quilts!

To your question what quilts would superheroes quilt....Wonder woman quilts a red white and blue quilt, machine quilted with golden (lariat) thread!

I'll be dropping by your blog more often, now that I know you're here, a friend gave me your link!
