Artist David Whalen created a collection of LEGO comic book covers and scenes of popular superheroes. The images feature iconic superheros that are re-imagined as LEGO figurines.

While there are existing superhero LEGO toys, these images contain authentic comic book elements. For example, some of the LEGO comic book images look exactly like a comic book cover with prices, titles and eye-catching motion illustrations. Each image has quirky speech bubbles and sound-emphasizing text to fully embody the nostalgia of its comic book inspirations.

Although many superhero books are considered an old-school source of entertainment, these images combine playful pieces of literature and toys to create a modernized piece of art. The images contain both DC and Marvel superheros such as Superman, Batman and The Hulk.
