I’ve never really understood the separation of church and state when it came to comic books and newspaper comics.
I’m not really sure why they’re considered more “cousins” in the art world than say “brother” and “sister”, but the super talented artist Ryan Dunlavey, he of Action Philosphers fame, has decided to work on throwing the two together, with a series of comic mashups that subvert Sunday newspaper classics in wonderful ways.
I’ve included my favorite above, the Peanuts/X-Men mashup X-Nuts, but there are a slue more in the post linked below, including Dennis the Menace meeting Star Wars to create Phantom The Menace, a Doctor Doom/Peanuts mix, and most hysterically, a combination of Sin City and Nancy.
Extra points for how well Dunlavey emulates each comics respective style. Takes some major talent to pull that off!
