Ziggy Cyclops! Album Covers Reimagined With Superheros


Ziggy “Aladdin Sane” Cyclops by Ewe de Witt. Ziggy Cyclops just sounds cool.

You have to love these very metal mashup’s of Superheros and classic album covers by German artist, Ewe de Witt.


Prince Purple Rain Ghostrider by Ewe de Witt.

Many of de Witt’s subjects are comic book characters. But as a self-proclaimed fan of metal, it was only a matter of time before the two collided. And the results are completely metal.


Too Fast For Love by Ewe de Witt.


Conan Does The Beatles by Ewe de Witt.

*Holiday Programming Note: Just a quick note to let you all know that my annual trip to the east coast kicks off on Sunday, so posts will be slower than usual. I’ll also be hitting Atlanta for a few days and will be running the Peachtree Roadrace 10K on July 4th. Weather reports are saying that it’s going to hit 106* today, and tomorrow in Atlanta, so your “please don’t die Cherrybomb” wishes, are welcome. Because, I really don’t wanna die, but if I’m not back again this time tomorrow, carry on, carry on. Because only metal matters. Have a happy and safe 4th!
