The Post-Punk/New Wave Super Friends: Musical Artists As Superhero Comic Book Covers | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

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.
