His subjects remind me a bit of one of my very early posts, “Stunning Watercolors With a Sense of Humor (I Think)” about the work of Lora Zombie, but the look of his art is much more clean and closer to traditional comic book style.

The Secret Life of Heroes is a series of brilliant illustrations that speculates about what our favorite superheroes (and other iconic characters) get up when no one is looking. The artist, Greg Guillemin, describes himself as an “Eclectic Graphical Gamer.” His love of comic books started at 11, and it really shows in his work. Not just because of the instantly recognizable characters, but also because of the wittiness of the way he’s posed them. There are loads of jokes here if you know enough about the characters to get them.
