Reliving your childhood this summer? If not, check out this adorable collection of cavorting kids channeling their inner comic heroes. Artist Andy Fairhurst treats us to a nostalgic time when young imaginations and warm August nights still burned bright.

Mount a swing, fill up your squirt guns and pedal that Schwinn as you run and play out the adventurous antics of Wolverine, Spider-Man, Magneto, Loki, the Flash, Poison Ivy, the Joker, Superman and many more. Fairhurst takes a minimalist approach to this cute geek-inspired series using stark silhouettes to convey the simplicity of the moment.

Who needs Facebook and the PS3 when you can be Iron Man launching off a trampoline or a jade giant Hulking out to grab an apple from the tree? Come on, the sun has just set, there's time for one more dash down the hill, one more kite to fly. Summer ain't over yet.

See even more of Fairhurst's charming artwork at his Deviant Art site here.
