Check out drawings of Morrissey as Superman, Robert Smith as Plasticman, and Ian Curtis as Batman

A Brazilian artist has produced a line of comic book art for those who might think Morrissey is super human. Butcher Billy’s work is based on the idea that, growing up, he was equally influenced by both “the incorruptible ideas of perfect superheroes” and the “human flaws and desires” conveyed in song lyrics. Hence, a picture of Ian Curtis as Batman.

All snark aside, Butcher Billy’s work is pretty amazing and, conveniently, totally commercially available. T-shirts, art prints, iPad and iPhone cases, cards, and all sorts of other goods are available on Society6, so go buy a Robert-Smith-as-Plasticman shirt and support mope rock, comic books, and creativity.
