Immaculate Comic Book Idols by Igor Scalisi Palminteri
Using statues of saints he purchased in Palermo, Igor applied a coat of paint, cloth capes, rubber masks, and holy righteousness to create the true saints of our era: superheroes! Invoking the same reverence through stories passed down for decades, who’s to say comic book heroes dont bear the same spiritual power as saints, passed down to us by some form of higher creative force? They are gods we created in our own image, but with the ability to inspire and protect us. Comic book heroes are the saints we deserve.
