The Super Hero’s Journey is an adventure unlike any you have ever read. Imbued with Patrick's creativity, artwork, and heart, this all-new graphic novel love letter features the classic Marvel super heroes including the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, Black Panther, and Spider-Man, and is the synthesis of McDonnell’s positive, inspirational sensibility and Marvel’s blockbuster brand.
Patrick incorporates panels from classic Marvel comics as a tribute to his heroes — Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and the other creators of the Marvel Universe — alongside inspirational quotes from Eckhart Tolle, Thoreau, and others.
Includes a bookplate that has been hand-signed by Patrick McDonnell (exclusive to MUTTS)!
