The art of comics: The Seattle Times takes a look at an exhibit of hand-knitted superhero costumes and beaded-and-embroidered comic-book covers at Greg Kucera Gallery:

"The 'Superheroes' hang limply on the wall or, in a few cases, are suspended from the ceiling. Thus, Spiderman, Ironman, Daredevil and others come alive with the brittle colors of the acrylic yarn and slightly oversize dimensions. Tallest of the lot at 10 feet high, 'Fantastic Four (Reed Richards)' (2003) goes beyond normal human size to a weirdly stretched effigy that delights and disturbs at the same time."
