Butcher Billy’s ‘Geeky Antiheroes Unchained’ project highlights some of the most popular characters that we’ve come to love and hate. The series of characters from this illustrated series includes familiar faces like Walter White, Harley Quinn and Dr. Manhattan from The Watchmen. Each of the characters is depicted wearing a pair of black glasses with a heavy 8-bit style frame.

The ‘Geeky Antiheroes’ were created by Billy for ‘GeekNess’ and the faces of these antiheroes are now represented on the site’s new banner.

Under the faces of these antiheroes, Billy has included the ‘GeekNess’ logo and text that reads "geek is the new sexy," but it could just as easily read: "antiheroes are the new sexy." Stats for Split Villain Portraits Trending: Older & Mild
