What would some famous (and infamous) comicbook classics look like as Penguins or Pelicans?

Not previously, insofar as I could find: Harry Potter and Lemony Snicket, ditto. Though by a different designer.

There's this, too, from 2009.

So basically if Alvin Lustig did comicbook covers.

I haven't kept up with comics since the mid-seventies so I didn't recognize a lot of the characters, but I really liked the Hulk cover.

Anxiously awaiting re-imagined covers of re-imagined covers...

The subtle ones are great.

I was expecting comic book characters drawn as penguins and/or pelicans. A little disappointed, then, even though these are well done.

This is a clear case where something is so well done that comment in unnecessary.

oops.

I, too, was imagining something more like this. (I mean, like that but better, but whatever).

Love the Dangerous Habits one.

I so badly want the Harry Potter series with those covers.

These are all great.

These are cool, but dang do I hate Flickr slideshows.

Still, the Harry Potters made it worth clicking through.
