DK Sr. Creative Thomas Nicholas self published, wrote and designed issue three of The New Heroes magazine. The New Heroes Three was born from a need to make sense of a society that has lost touch with mythology. Issue Three features interviews with Daniel Arsham, Beetroot Design, Mauro Perucchetti, Jared David Paul, Ivan Forde, Tom Berry, and Delphine Diaw Diallo; artists exploring a new definition of mythology for our modern age. The New Heroes is printed on recycled newsprint stock and will have a short lifespan, making it important that its contents are disseminated orally, in the same way that myth has always been passed on itself.
