Des Taylor shows a softer side of superheroes in these retro comic book renderings. Depicting Peter Parker and his hot and steamy romance with Mary Jane Watson, Superman and his chivalrous courtship of Lois Lane and Batman and his failed, but hopeful relationship with Catwoman, Taylor makes viewers forget all about the world-saving antics of these vigilantes and wish they can just witness these selfless men and women go on a normal date once in a while.

Making his drawings that much more glamorous, Des Taylor employs a vintage illustrative style hearkening back to the days when pin-up models and classic Hollywood aesthetics dominated the media. Not since Roy Lichtenstein has comic book art looked this classy. Stats for Romantic Retro Superhero Renderings Trending: Older & Buzzing
