82 Super Heroes/Villains Drawn as Mr. Men
March 24th, 2010
The following are reimaginings of various Super Hero Characters as if they were part of the successful children’s book franchise Mr. Men. They are the work of the talented Seven Hundred who also sells T-shirts at Red Bubble. All I could say about these is that they kick ass, so I’ll rather let the artist talk:
What if Marvel (and others) had created the Mr Men? What if Alan Moore was pals with Roger Hargreaves? Why, I guess you’d wind up with something like this crowd… The idea basically sparked from the realisation that Mr Happy from the Mr Men, looks a lot like the Comedians badge from Watchmen… and a quick doodle of this lead to the question “Who Watches the Mr Men?” and assigning various Mr Men personalities to their Alan Moore counterparts… The Mr Bat/Batman & Mr Spider/Spider-man characters just kind of came to me as an extension of the Watchmen/Mr Men. I wish there was some kind of deep, profound meaning behind it, my childhood book collections colliding or it being a comment on the major personality traits of main stream comic characters… but really, they are just fun little re-imaginings.
