Kozy made this drawing for the exhibition "Meanwhile… At the Hall of Justice: A Collection of Superhero Mishaps" at the Subtext Gallery in San Diego CA that opened during Comic Con weekend, July 24th, 2009.

Doraemon may not be a Superhero in the American sense, but the Japanese don't really have superhero comics. Doraemon was a hero though, although maybe not a very good one. Sent from the 22nd century, he could pull anything imaginable out of the 4th dimensional pocket in his belly to help aid Nobita through the the trials of being a nerdy loser kid. In kozy's piece however, Doraemon accidentally pulls a black hole out of his pocket, bringing our existence (and Nobita's) to an untimely end in the blink of an eye.
