    This Artist Reimagined Popular Male Superheroes As Classic Pinups, And Just OMG

    More like "Avengers ASSemble," am I right? (I'm sorry.)

    Look, I'm a simple lady: I love comic books. I love classic pinups. I love hilariously perfect reimaginings.

    So you can imagine how freakin' pumped I was when I recently stumbled across the incredible work of artist David Talaski and found that all three of those interests converged in his men-of-comics pinup series.

    "My husband and I are big comic book/movie fans, and I really love midcentury illustration," David told BuzzFeed. "Especially pinup pieces from artists like Gil Elvgren and Alberto Vargas."

    "I always felt like — when I attended conventions — there wasn’t much sexy art of dudes, at least in proportion to all the scantily clad art of women you’ll find," David said. "Vintage pinup felt like a good way to go because it’s a balance between sexy and silly. It’ll make you blush, but you can still hang it in your bathroom and have Mom over. Maybe even gift one to her — which has happened!"

    He continued, "At the end of the day, I just wanted to make something lighthearted and cheeky for all the nerds who appreciate the sexy men of comics."
