Superhero Renaissance?

No, I'm not suggesting that superhero comics have suddenly "seen the light." Pal Miron Murcury alerted me to this Photoshopping contest at Worth1000.com. The theme this time should be pretty clear from the examples I've posted here: "Blue Boy Wonder" by the pseudonymous "Snowcrash," "Superdegas" by "DerPartnerSweeny," and "Wonder Woman" by FlashDaz.

Not all the entries are as accomplished as these three, but there are several here that are amusing and unexpected. Maybe not worth 1000 looks, but definitely worth a look or two; check it out here.

Perhaps this is a new genre: BROW ART? If we treat words like mathematical concepts (which I do all the time - really):

Highbrow Art + Lowbrow Art = BROW ART

I like it! Pass it on...

Oh, the lowest common denominator!

We could also make it philosophical- is it comics or is it art? Of course, the correct answer is:

It's ALL art!

And 'all art' sounds like 'mall art', so it's all Thomas Kinkade in the end.

And that concludes today's lesson.

Ah, the painter of light. How trippingly the phrase jetees off the tongue! All is dross that is not Kinkade...
