Post-Punk Supervillain Squad

Some of the biggest post-punk music icons become a supervillain squad in this stunning set of posters by Butcher Billy. Check out the video below:

Considering Butcher Billy's wild streak (having already created pop art prints that blended Charles Bukowski quotes with the distinctive stylings of Roy Lichtenstein), pairing post-punk legendaries with comic book baddies seems like a logical leap. The set of 12 characters sees the likes of Blondie and Robert Smith merge with fictional favourites such as Harley Quinn and The Joker. Check out a selection of these below:

All of these are stunning but my personal favourite (being a fan of The Cure) is Robert Smith as The Joker. The lyrics are a perfect fit with the character and as one who has not seen Suicide Squad yet, this seems more in line with Heath Ledger's Joker from The Dark Knight or Alan Moore's graphic novel The Killing joke.

Overall, a great piece which further fuels the 80s revival of late. Long may it continue.
