6 Superheros on the Cover of Post-Punk & New Wave Albums

Being completely retro is out. Being retro while infusing geeky elements? That’s more like it. Like taking iconic Post-Punk & New Wave albums from the early 1980’s, and putting Superheroes like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman on the cover.

Butcher Billy decided to blend his love for The Smiths, the Cure and others with his cravings for Superheroes, especially of the DC kind, with the idea of Real people or imaginary characters, the incorruptible ideals of perfect superheroes or the human flaws and desires sometimes so desperately depicted in song lyrics.
