PARK SLOPE - A Brooklyn illustrator and author is making garbage trucks more appealing by pegging them as superheroes.

Stephen Savage created "Supertruck," a book about a garbage truck that becomes a superhero after battling through a blizzard.

Savage says he was inspired when he noticed a garbage truck with a plow on it a few years ago.

Savage read the book at the bookstore powerHouse on 8th on Sunday, where it seemed to be a hit with the kids.

The author is in talks to pen a sequel to "Supertruck."
