Chris Haley decided to combine two of his favorite things -- comic books and Kanye West -- and has succeeded admirably. By illustrating Kanye West's rap lyrics, Haley has not only started an Internet meme, but he's also given the words visual power that ordinarily is only achieved in a music video.
The lyrics are portrayed with a superhero flair that is both visually stunning and worthy to hang on a wall. While Kanye West is and will remain a controversial pop-culture figure, Chris Haley's illustrations show how powerful his words are. I would definitely purchase these if they were for sale.
