Talented illustratior Suraj Sirohi offers an unconventional look at famed heroes from graphic novels and comic books by transforming the characters into critter superhero cartoons. Each iconic hero is reimagined as an animal for a surrealist and whimsical effect.

As fans are so used to seeing their favorite superheroes as humans, Sirohi creatively subverts this expectation with his graphic illustrations by transforming them into animals. The drawings still capture the essence of the hero and what they stand for, but cleverly transfer the humanized aesthetic on an animal's body. For example, Captain America is shown as a wise old tortoise, the Flash is showcased as an ostrish and Batman is shown as a german shepherd dog.
