Big Hero Kids Update Coming...

People of the Hero Kids world, I'm currently in the middle of a big refresh of the Hero Kids assets.

I decided after doing the Space Adventures cards, that the heroes and monsters look better with a light fill to make them pop from the background parchment, like this:


As usual, I decided that while I was in the process of updating all of the Hero Cards and Monster Cards, I'd also take a look at all of their powers to ensure they're all consistent.  And then I also wanted to take a look at a few pieces of artwork from the original that weren't great...


Anyway, this is a long way of saying that this update has taken too long, but it's close to done... :-)
