Loveable Pop Culture Villains

Really, underneath all of that bluster and bravado, villains just want to be loved. Yes, even the alien from Alien.

New York-based artist Isaac Bidwell has created this excellent set of posters, entitled 'They Just Want To Be Loved', exploring the softer side of those characters we love to hate such as Freddy Kruger and Jason Voorhees. Perhaps all they really want is to play a game, or maybe a cuddle? After they've slashed someone to death though.

Check them out below, and you can preorder the whole set, signed, in 8" x10" size, for $30 (£18) from Isaac's Store.
