Mike Mitchell Superman Re-Skinned 1

Perhaps the most famous of all Superman imagery comes, not surprisingly, from his very first comic features. The cover of Superman #6 featured a smiling hero, his radiant face looking out on a world he was happy and generous enough to save. It’s classic Americana to the max. When artist Mike Mitchell recently took on the iconic image, he gave it everything but a new face – “re-skinning” Superman with the clothing of pop-culture icons far and wide, old and new.

Hardly a character has been left alone: we have Charlie Brown and Wonder Woman taking us back to other classic comics, and there is The Dude and Margo from The Royal Tenenbaums bringing us into modern cinema. Perhaps the hardest hitting of the series are the most odd, like a version of Spongebob Squarepants or Ralphie from The Christmas Story in full bunny attire. If you’re interested in more pop-icons gone Superman, head to Mike Mitchell’s site, SirMikeOfMitchell.com, where you can find prints and t-shirts too.
