Billy Butcher, a talented artist from Brazil, paid tribute to the late Stan Lee by illustrating the Marvel co-founder as various superheroes from his own comic book universe. “He was a cartoon storyteller…he became an actor in live-action series, in movies, he became the voice and face of what he created. 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,” said Billy.

“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,” said Billy in an interview.
