Butcher Billy does a Marvel Post-Punk Crossover!
[dropcap]B[/dropcap]utcher Billy is back—this time crossing over into the Marvel Universe!

People have been asking me to do a Marvel version since I released the first series.  I never thought it would be interesting until I started sketching the first drawings.  The Vision came quite naturally as I really wanted to add Gary to the gang. However I didn’t think it would look as good as it was in my head 

When I decided to use DC characters in the first series it was because of the “god” status that they have. However with the Marvel characters I can explore other possibilities for the post-punk singers: for example – the Spider-Man from the 60’s and 70’s has gone through a lot of tragedy…he was funny but also very depressive.  His girlfriend died because of him, and he wanted to give up loads of times. He was always struggling between his life as a hero and his life as normal person, and I think that can paralell the life of a certain Joy Division singer

 Marvel characters are a bit more fragile—because they mostly struggle with real life issues, and their issues are always quite personal, and I always found those concepts quite relatable.
