At age of 25, an artist from Islamabad hit the social media with his creativity of developing superheroes that Pakistani’s could relate to. Lets meet Umair Najeeb Khan, the creator of PaakLegion – A Pakistani Superhero Comic Book, who is known for his extraordinary work of making a series that highlight modern life in Pakistan and also represent our culture through our very own HEROES. He is superb in making movie posters and educational posters for public awareness as well. Following are few examples of his amazing artwork.
