Australian graphic designer Josip Kelava created a series of typographic posters entitled Heroes and Villains. The prints are detailed and well-done -- especially the color contrast, which gives dimension to the drawings.

The fictional fighters of Kelava's work appear strong and fearless, as the illustrator presents them in their best attires and unbeatable poses. Kelava's intense color palette of purples and burgundy gives his posters a dark tone that conveys the power of heroes. The typography is also brilliant as it matches the characters' personalities.

Alien, Stormtrooper, Batman and Zelda are some of the famous subjects that Josip Kelava used in his posters. Even though many artists have worked with similar concepts before, these prints stand out because of the unusual range of colors and accurate depiction of the characters.
