More images from Billy’s art project are available on Tumblr and Behance. Prints, apparel, and more are available to purchase online from Society6 and Redbubble.

Yet they’re in the pages of comics in your local book shop. These characters are the ones that enjoy a pint or two at the local pub before saving the world or – very often – making an even bigger mess. Like it or not, they are the interesting ones, not to mention the most fun. Because no one ever made superfriends by drinking milk.
