The Post-Punk/New Wave Super Friends: Musical Artists As Superhero Comic Book Covers

May 17, 2013


This is a series of comic book covers designed by Brazilian artist Butcher Billy reimagining post-punk/new wave musical artists as superheroes. The Billy Idol one is my favorite and not just because I have a thing for Aquaman, or that riding a giant seahorse would be cool, but because Billy Idol flipped me off at a concert once. It was at The Who concert in DC in and they were performing the rock opera Quadrophenia and Billy Idol came out as a special guest dressed as a bellhop at the beginning of the song 'Bell Boy' and he scanned the audience, we locked eyes, and he flipped me off, presumably because he could see into my soul and didn't like what he saw. Then they all broke into 'White Wedding', making it the greatest night of my life.

Hit the jump for a bunch more including Morrissey of The Smiths and Robert Smith of The Cure.







Thanks to Fally and PYY, who know good music when they hear it and neither was impressed with my singing in the shower demo tape. Come on -- not even the part where you could hear me slip and fall?
