There’s a love-affair that artists have with super-heroes and mash-ups. Whether combined with old music albums or movies, the fusions are often quite a site. Minnesota-based artist Josh Lynch recently contributed his style of Marvel Comics combinations. Taking a cue from the 1987 film “Spaceballs”, he took Marvel characters and turned them into “mogs” (half-men, half-dogs). Fusing known Marvel characters with different breeds of dog, some of his art has an almost stealthy pun to it (the Doc Ock and Ghost Rider mash-ups come to mind). Of the 16 images, there’s only one female character he utilized: Jubilee. Even though writers can use the word “bitch” (with its most famous meaning) in the books now, I suppose Lynch wanted to avoid any potential controversy that would come with publishing any Marvel female character mash-ups. Here they are, along with my take on them:
