Marko Manev’s Noir Superheroes

X-Men by Marko Manev

Several weeks ago we saw superheroes in seventeenth-century Flemish art style. Today, we have something a little more contemporary for you: portraits of superheroes in midcentury neo-noir!

Macedonian artist Marko Manev has amazing digital artworks of DC Comics and Marvel comic book superheroes at his website, ranging from Captain America and Ironman to Superman and Thor. Look hard enough and you’ll even find Boba Fett there!

Our favorite is this image of the X-Men which reminds us of the giant robots from Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow — a dieselpunk classic.

Thanks to Jonas A. McCaffery for sharing these images over at our friends at Dieselpunks.
