Wannabe Superhero

Boy Zero Wannabe Hero: The Pertrifying Plot of the Plummeting Pants.

“Is it a falling bird? Is it an out-of-control plane? No, it’s BOY ZERO, WANNABE HERO, and he’s here to save the world (hopefully!)”

Steve May has illustrated the first title in this hilarious new illustrated series, written by Peter Millett and published this month by Faber and Faber. This was a dream job for him as he has always loved drawing superheroes, particularly dysfunctional ones.

Here is a small selection of Steve’s inside illustrations featuring Charlie Applejack, aka Boy Zero and his arch nemesis General Pandemonium.
