In his unique comic collage art, modern artist Ashkan Honarvar takes clippings form different comic books and puts them together in fascinating combinations to create blended superhero designs.

The unusual works of comic collage art are made up of a jumble of superhero limbs, spandex-clad body parts and chopped-apart costumes, usually tumbling through a background of simply-drawn foliage and plant life that looks like it came out of an antique botanical catalog. Each fantastical scene contains a single speech or thought bubble, which lend the comic collage art pieces a thought-provoking, sometimes eerie overtone.

In one image, a seven-limbed, torso-less and headless Captain America clutches at the stem of a giant wildflower, thinking "...could be so easily cured!" The effect is slightly unsettling and deeply intriguing.
