The Avengers re-imagined as Chinese opera heroes

Awesome art by Gene Luen Yang

Just have to share this awesome art that I got in the mail the other day... These are the Mighty Avengers -- Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor -- re-imagined as Chinese opera heroes. It's the work of graphic novelist Gene Luen Yang, whose latest book Boxers & Saints was recently long-listed for the National Book Award.

Pretty darn cool. I'm hanging it up on my wall! Want one? If you're in the Austin, Texas area, Austin Books & Comics has exclusive, limited-edition prints of Gene's Chinese Opera Avengers drawing for $20. You can also order it from the Guzu Gallery Official Online Store.

Here's a closer look at the characters:
