It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s Superhero Superstars!

While I can’t pinpoint the exact time and place that this happened, at some point in my early teen years, the super-heroines of my youth were quietly replaced by a hero of a different kind: musical superstars. While graphic novels were still near and dear to my heart, I was captivated by the unique sound and look of artists like Siouxsie and the Banshees and Morrissey. So imagine my delight when I came across these mash-ups of superheroes and post-punk royalty by artist Butcher Billy.

Punctuated by the bold graphics and vibrant hues so ubiquitous with classic comics, it is only when you look closer that you realize Wonder Woman is looking considerably more power charged and The Flash is sporting an energy dome and glasses. Whether you’re a post-punk fanatic or geek out over graphic novels, these unique re-imaginings will be sure to save the day.

About Julie O.

A lover of all things vintage and vintage-inspired, Julie bought her first 1950s frock in the fifth grade. Since then, Julie has become a self-described connoisseur of vintage and thrift shopping, which she shares on her blog, Orchid Grey. When she’s not scouring the racks for the perfect vintage skirt, this native New Englander can be found deftly navigating the slopes of a ski mountain, taking road-trips to the beach, and exploring new places with a vintage camera in her hand.
