The Saturday Evening Post-Rock

Andrés Moncayo Spider-Man as SuperRocker

You know we love mash-ups at HeroWiz, and we’ve got a few more inspired ones to share with you. Some of Marvel and DC’s finest have been sent through the pop culture meta-machine, and we present two examples of great work from opposite ends of the style spectrum. First up is digital artist Ruiz Burgos’ series of Norman Rockwell-worshipping renditions of iconic DC characters, done up like classic Saturday Evening Post covers. These are gorgeous, and make you wonder how on Earth 2 a certain Alex Ross didn’t come up with the idea first:

About as far away from that treatment as you can get is Andrés Moncayo’s “Super Rockers” gallery, which re-imagines both The Avengers and The Justice League (well, let’s call them The Super Friends since we see a few punk-tastic Wonder Twins in the mix) as buzz blog-ready musicians. We especially dig Wonder Woman’s magic lasso as microphone cord, and Wolverine’s not-so-subtle cowbell tattoo:

Mike McCann is a lifelong geek with a deep and abiding passion for comic books, science fiction and all things pop culture. Why, yes - he IS an only did you know? He's also a history major, a hockey and football fanatic and a music nerd of the highest order. In other words, you want him on your pub trivia team. Seven year old Mike once received a letter from DC Comics encouraging him to "keep drawing and maybe you'll work for us someday!" His grade school library published a Dungeons & Dragons-inspired book he wrote at 12, and he's never looked back. Since then, he has worked in creative or strategic roles at college radio stations and newspapers, record companies, music magazines, dens of Internet iniquity, budding media empires, global telecommunications outfits and software development consultancies, with each stop allowing him to turn his hobbies into a job. Call him the Vice President of (Arrested) Business Development. Mike lives in Toronto, Canada with his patient wife and their five year old, superhero-obsessed son. Among their prized possessions are a NM copy of X-Men #94, a replica of the Shakespeare bust from the Batman TV show and a Death Star cookie jar.
