At Creative Bloq we're big fans of both comic art (opens in new tab) and cool music, so this mash-up project by the Brazilian graphic and web designer known as 'Butcher Billy' went right up our flagpole.
Possibly the world's least likely people ever to be turned into superheroes, here the stars of 1970s and 1980s punk and new wave, including Joy Division, Morrissey, Siouxsie Sioux, Devo and more, have been given a makeover in a style reminiscent of comic book artist Jack Kirby (opens in new tab), who created the visuals for both Marvel and DC.
Inspired by the DC Justice League, the designs are being sold in the form of T-shirts (opens in new tab), iPhone cases (opens in new tab) and posters (opens in new tab), with both colour and monochrome versions available. You can find out more details, and see more of Butcher Billy's music-inspired art, on his Behance page.
