While in Canberra recently we were able to check out the amazing superhero graffiti in Tocumwal Lane. What used to be just a place to park cars and take out the rubbish has now become a colourful superhero vs villain battle. From Galactus to Shazam and even Deadpool, all my favourite characters have come to life is a way I never dreamed of.
It all started here in many ways. The Impact comics Brue Timm Batman wall. This was the first comic book store I properly worked at. Batman was painted on the back wall from before I worked there. I used to love seeing Batman greet me when I drove into work every shift. I have so many happy memories working at that store and knowing that the Impact Comics Batman inspired so many other artists to share their love of comics through graffiti fills my heart with joy. Batman used to stand alone in a big lane filled with bins and cars, now he has a whole team of friends to help him battle the villains that surround the walls.
Next time you are in Canberra be sure to check out Tocumwal Lane just behind Impact Comics in the City. It is such an inspiring place to be filled with hard work and happy memories.
