Upcycled Comics breathes new life into old comics

PowerUpCollage-BAMF

Too bad there’s no more wall space for art in my comic den at the moment. But if there was, I finally found a use for the boxes of comics I’m having a difficult time parting with and order (at least) one of these fabulous pieces from the PowerUp collection by Upcycled Comics (aka Amy Watkins).

According to her Esty page:

I love my comics too much to keep them in dusty long boxes in the closet. After I’ve read the stories and pored over the pictures, I want to enjoy my comics again, as a medium for new art. I sell original, handmade pieces–no prints here–constructed out of the amazing art of old comic books.

Joseph Hughes at Comics Alliance digs up this gem from Canadian artist Terry Ververgaert’s Deviant Art page.

Another fun pic from Terry’s gallery is this one titled SpongeBob X Pants. Patrick is a perfect Cyclops.

The most impressive comic book tattoo ever?

All-star party in the front, business in the back. This man proudly displays his obsession with comics.

Do you think he’s pissed about the DC New 52? At least the Uncanny X-Men cover featured on his back becomes more iconic with each passing year.

(Gfest goes Fashion Police re: his choice of attire and undergarments.)

Has Mario Bros. invaded Marvel Universe?

Forget the Brood, Phalanx and Skrulls. The heroes of Marvel U have a new evil to contend with and its names are Mario and Luigi: the Super Mario Bros.

There are enough Mario/Marvel mashups sightings on the Web to suggest a full-scale invasion by the Nintendo game series cast is underway.

Exhibit AMario vs X-Men (above) – is courtesy of Casey Edwards. The four images above (11×17 each) are available for purchase as a set from his online store. There’s also some pretty interesting stuff in his DeviantArt gallery.

Exhibit B is Mushroom Avenged – aka Mario vs Avengers – by Matt Dearden. I don’t know enough Avengers trivia nor have the patience to research whether this was ever an official lineup. But Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have apparently fallen to the same fate as their mutant counterparts and replaced by Princess Peach and her gang of bruisers.

Our third Exhibit this evening – Donkey Kong vs the Fantastic Four – is an inspired Anthony Vukojevich version of Jack Kirby and Sol Brodsky’s cover to Fantastic Four #26 for Robert Goodin’s blog Covered. The site showcases artist work interpreting comic book covers and features some truly awesome pieces. At the right is the original Kirby cover from 1964.

“What If…?” Pixar made an X-Babies movie

What happens when you combine a mutant terrorist with a toddler? You get Lil’ Magnus. I’m sure they stopped picking on him at daycare once he started whipping Slinkys around.

3D artist Victor Hugo created this fan art of the Master of Magnetism based on Scottie Young renditions of X-Babies.

Ah, the X-Babies. Those little stinkers were dreamed up by Chris Claremont and Art Adams and first appear in the pages of X-Men in 1988 (Uncanny X-Men Annual #12 for the trivia buffs). Though looking at this panel from the issue, they don’t like babies so much as a team of miniature X-Men.
