The Simpsons is a wonderful creation. Able to merge all facets of pop culture effortlessly the longest running animated series is a fanboy haven of in-jokes and parodies. The tie-in comics by Bongo have been written by one of my fave writers, Chuck Dixon, and an issue of Simpsons Comics even featured a fight between writers Grant Morrison and Mark Millar.
And now, there’s this. The product of artist Dean T. Fraser, Springfield Punx takes some great characters from the halls of pop culture and re-designs them as they would appear on The Simpsons. There’s much more at his blog, but here’s a few of my faves – Superman, Batman, Nightwing (AKA Dick Grayson, the first Robin), Robin III (AKA Tim Drake in his cool new costume), Joker’s main squeeze, Harley Quinn, amputee Aquaman from his morose days in the 1990s and finally, Lion-O, leader of the Thundercats. Still hungry for more? Then you can also check out Project Rooftop, which is filled with even more wild re-imaginings of superhero costumes from a gaggle of talented artists.
