Whatever you may have thought about Bohemian Rhapsody, one thing is undeniable: its massive financial success has created an entire new generation of fans for Queen and Freddie Mercury. And that is absolutely a good thing.
With a $900 million global gross for the film, Freddie is now standing neck and neck with the biggest Hollywood superheroes. So it’s only appropriate that legendary singer should get the superhero treatment himself. In a new series of prints (via The Laughing Squid), Brazilian artist Butcher Billy has reimagined the Queen frontman as various comic book heroes, with classic Queen song titles as the names of the stories showcased on the fictional covers. The series is called “Planet Mercury Comics,” which we think Freddie would have approved of.
