Gus here.

I'm staunchly in favor of the comic/superhero theme. Since superheroes and comic books have been a huge part of pop culture for decades, we should have no problem creating humorous puns in relation to school.

Cheer, for example, could be titled with "Pom particles". Antman/Pym particle references!! Mr. Melkioty? the man of steel.

Even though we are trying to create a more minimalist yearbook this year, I think that a background similar to what we did with the sports poster illustration would be fitting- applying a filter similar to the Photocopy effect, and make the members of our school appear inked in. the placement would be similar to the shoe illustrations we did two yearbooks ago... Opacity toned down, and placement just behind the main title. In this way we could create a collage of some of the preeminent athletes in our school- thus simultaneously recognizing and promoting their achievement, in a comic style.

Hoping Isaac will be willing to create a yearbook staff illustration- Making us all into our own comic book character/superhero. What better way to close a yearbook?
