I know very little about the Cat-a-Comb series by Brazilian illustrator Maicon Costa. I’ve highlighted a few comic book pieces here but he delves deep into geek culture for this series.
Is he building a body of work to show in a gallery exhibit? Does he intend on selling this pop art? Who can say, but he’s posted a lot of illustrations. (I lost count after 50)
Not into cartoon cats? Check out his cool Super Mario illustration.
The bio from his Tumblr feed:
I’m Maicon Costa, a designer and illustrator from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Maicon = MCN.
I work on advertising the focusing on graphic design, advertising and illustration.
Well Maicon, thanks for sharing!

Watchponies vs Ponymen – the debate still rages. But everyone agrees, this is a great mashup. Bonus: I’ve discovered a My Little Pony subculture who are having a fun time mashing up the Ponies with comic book movie trailers.
Since the vast majority of people won’t know both Watchmen and My Little Pony, the players are:
Pinkie Pie is perfectly cast as Rorschach
Twilight Sparkle as Dr. Manhattan
Applejack as Nite Owl
Spike as Ozmandias
Rainbow Dash as The Comedian
Rarity as Silk Spectre
