If comic books and retro gaming weren’t enough geeky awesomeness for you as separate entities, Paulo Capdeville has merged the two worlds together to make superhero illustrations that are sure to have fans of both things giggling like a chubby child around food. Depicting world-saving ensembles like X-Men, the Fantastic Four, the Avengers and more in a pixelated style evocative of 8-bit graphics, Capdeville’s illustrations are supercharged with nostalgia yet distinctly contemporary. Putting a new twist on something viewers are familiar with, and executing it at such a skilled level, ensures that these comic book creations will be beloved by all.

Paulo Capdeville works as a graphic design and illustrator currently based in Almada, Portugal. He renders most of his images digitally using vectors, giving his portfolio a very pristine and sleek overall look.
