Black Mirror gets a cult comic book makeover

Having started life on Channel 4 before moving to Netflix, Black Mirror has become a cult hit thanks to its disturbing storylines centred around technology. Written by comedy genius Charlie Brooker, the dystopian episodes see cartoon characters become political leaders, anonymous trolls holding people to ransom, and social media becoming a form of currency.

It's this dark humour that clearly appeals to art director Butcher Billy, as his latest series of illustrations focus on the series. With an art style not too dissimilar to those found on vintage posters, this range of illustrations imagine how Black Mirror might look if it was an old school comic book from the 70s.
