Stained glass comic book covers

0004-478339_orig-608x751.jpg

To some die-hard geeks, comic books are pretty much a religion. They worship a figure who sacrificed himself for mankind (Batman), assemble with other believers at a place of worship (Comic-Con) and treat Sundays as a day of rest (sleeping until 3pm).

Taking this idea one step further, Brandon Michael Barker has created stained glass window versions of some classic comic covers. Belonging in a church ran by geeks, they bring a level of gravitas to an underappreciated artform.

If you fancy one for your basement then they cost around $300.
