Vintage Superhero Illustrations (7 total)

Inspired by Bruce Timm's angular and simplified style character designs in Batman: The Animated Series, Illinois-based illustrator Mike Myers has created a very cool set of vintage superhero illustrations.

"I really really love imagery that can express an idea without overdoing it visually," he tell us. "I'm a huge fan of Olly Moss, who has been really making a name for himself with some wonderful design work, most of which I would consider to be minimalist design."

Watch for DC villains and Marvel comic book characters sometime in the near future!

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Mine is that I like it without faces. :) I can see where you are coming from though. Thanks for commenting :)

like the superman and wonder woman ones i dont like, they seem incomplete to me. unless mike cant draw faces and it would have ruined the picture then it makes sense to leave them out (something i would do haha)

@Matthew-It adds to the picture as a whole, don't you think?
