Art deco superheroes

hero_cubism.jpg

Superheroes have always been pretty damn cool. But in the 90s, thanks mainly to Joel Schumacher, they started to descend into embarrassment.

Cut to 2011 and things are rather different. With a range of acclaimed, non-garish outings, superheroes are officially "in" again.

Proof of this fact can be found right in front of your eyes. This selection of posters gives a classy art deco spin to some iconic justice-seekers. They've all been created by the very talented Grégoire Guillemin.

You can find more of his work here.
