Who hadn’t ever dreamed about being a superhero? Which child hadn’t ever imagined himself wearing a cape and flying through the skies to fight evil? “Little Heroes” is a series about this feeling of doing great realizations and being part of incredible adventures, but it shows how heroism also emerges even from the smallest actions. Acts of bravery and courage aren’t exclusivity of men from Krypton or demigods. Instead of showing the human behind the supers, this series shows the supers within the us, humans.





The Kitchen Witch #1

The Kitchen Witch is for every boy who idolizes his dad. Kevin can’t wait to see his dad’s new restaurant- Traddiodad. The night before the opening, he sneaks down to the kitchen, and enters the fantastic world within its walls. There, the Gremlin Lord has stolen his secret family ingredient. To get it back, Kevin and Lovis, the Kitchen Witch, battle their way through towering mouse beasts, bacteria bandits, and fruit flywaymen. Kevin wants to make his dad proud, but the ingredient is a secret, even to him. Lovis and the Gremlin Lord stalemate in the Hanging Cast-Iron Islands, but Kevin discovers the truth of the secret ingredient and banishes the Gremlin Lord. Through his adventure, Kevin finds true treasure- a connection with his dad.

The Kitchen Witch is an adventure combining Scandinavian folklore with raw childhood imagination and emotion. A Manhattan kitchen’s geography becomes a fantasy landscape. Hanging pots become floating iron islands, grills become steaming ore fields- a new Narnia garnished with culinary flourishes. Contemporary issues frame the narrative as Kevin’s dad struggles with single-parenting. Kevin wants to help his dad more than anything, which carries him through his own personal wondertale. This is the distillation of childhood, when the fantastic still waits around any corner.

A brand new modern family adventure from writer Steve Orlando (Outlaw Territory, Image Comics, Mystery in Space, Vertigo), artist O. Pelaez (The Gutters, 2011 Harvey Nominee), colorist Heather Breckel (The Adorable Mini-Adventures), and letterer Matty Ryan (The Many Adventures of Miranda Mercury).
