Blak Superheroes addresses and amplifies stories of representation, creating change that uplifts ourselves and mob. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have had important roles through history to present day. Blak characters’ representation in history has always been in the background, never the focal point, and characterised by racist stereotypes. These works reflect the resilience, innovation and empowerment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to not only survive, but to thrive in so-called Australia”. – Dylan Mooney.

In his series Blak Superheroes, Yuwi, Torres Strait Islander and Australian-born South Sea Island man, Dylan Mooney depicts First Nations characters in a dynamic comic-book style.
