City Strips

gothamCity Strips von P-O-I, Architektur-Zines bestehend aus Comic-Panels, von denen die Sprechblasen, Captions und Superhelden herausretuschiert wurden. Über die ersten beiden Ausgaben mit Zeichnungen aus Supermans Metropolis und Spidermans New York hatte ich hier gebloggt, Ausgaben 3 und 4 widmen sich nun den Architektur-Smashs des unglaublichen Hulks und Batmans Gotham. I love these.
