In what CONCEIVABLE universe is Doc Ock going to be happily tending bar while Spider-Man plays guitar onstage? They're ENEMIES. They would NOT be working TOGETHER to run a ROCK VENUE

honestly this shit is simply RIDICULOUS

Sorry, man, I ain't buying it. I don't believe you really know what you like!

DUDE, neither THE GUY POURING THE DRINKS nor the guy SLINGING THE GUITAR are likely to be the guys RUNNING the rock venue

That shit is UNLIKELY

Oh my god, the Red Skull painting is the greatest thing ever. Even more fantastic in that I'm pretty sure it's the same Steve Purcell of Sam & Max fame.

Also, Brandon Bird +Magneto+ducklings= teh win.

I saw the RSS feeder title, and thought Stan Musial had died, and my heart sank.

Awesomeness. This is wonderful. Thank you, sambosambo.

That first pic should bring you a banhammer.

Pft, that's not even realistic. Doc Oc would be using all his arms to wail on this, while Spidey tended bar using Spider Sense to alert him to drink orders. That artist didn't even try.

Also, I'm in love with Iron Man.

Some of these are fantastic.

I really want this Hulk.

Spidertoast and retro invisible girl are clearly the winners.

Seriously, what's with the Magneto and the chicks? It's funny how Stan Lee is just as iconic as his creations.

I know a lot about art, but I don't know what I like.

I'm not a comix fan, but the other stuff was OK, reminds me of Juxtapoz.

I love these! The variety of interpretations is amazing. Great post, thanks!

Aw, this one is sweet.

Kickass! I'm flying into LA right now. I hope to catch the show later today. Perfect timing!

I wish people would stop thinking they're being unique by baby-fying classic characters though. Cuz scary things like Down's Syndrome Tigger need to be looong forgotten instead of inspiring a trend. He scares me.

Thanks for this, sambosambo. Now I know exactly what I don't like.

Fun stuff. Of course, Stan Lee had nothing to do with Wolverine's, Storm's, the Punisher's or Captain America's creation ... and for the characters he did create, it was guys like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko that came up with the designs.

So by "Tribute to Stan Lee" they mean "Tribute to Marvel Comics, for which Stan Lee takes an unbalanced amount of credit"
/nerd

But it's quality artwork -- I like Iron Man in the Black Sabbath t-shirt a lot.

Lowbrow art.

That Ororo black-and-white makes my thighs shiver. Wonderful!

Hey my buddy Brandon has a painting in this! It's of magneto! You should look at and/or buy it!

Saw the exhibit this afternoon. Went straight from the airport to the gallery. It was a kick seeing works of the artists I know from the web in real life, especially Brandon Bird.
