Punky Superhero Portraits
Butcher Billy Transforms Rock Stars into Superheros

In their own way, rock stars are much like the superheros of reality, which is exactly what illustrator Butcher Billy expressed in his new graphic art. By combining new wave musicians with classic comic book characters, Butcher Billy has created a series bursting with pop culture references and odd juxtapositions.

For instance, Butcher Billy transforms Robert Smith of The Cure into Plastic Man, a clever jab at Smith’s doll-like appearance. The image is captioned with a lyric from The Cure’s hit, ‘Friday I’m in Love,’ evoking even more pop culture memories. Butcher Billy continues this trend in all his new graphic art, combining Morrissey of The Smiths with Superman and transforming Billy Idol into the algae-ridden Aquaman.

Butcher Billy’s new wave superheros are pop culture tributes to some amazing musicians with a satirical twist.
