Famous album covers get a DC and Marvel remix

Music and comics are frequently overlapping, from the storied creation of Marvel's Dazzler to numerous comic biographies and comics about musicians, but artist Uwe de Witt is taking it one step further.

Evocative of Cliff Chiang's appropriation of Prince's Purple Rain  for a Batgirl illustration, de Witt has taken popular album covers from the past 40 years and reinterpreted them with Marvel and DC Comics characters. De Witt, who has worked for German comics publisher EEE, goes for the deep cuts, with the Doctor Doom variants of Doctor Dre and Pink Floyd covers being particularly striking.

Here's a selection of some of what Dewitt has done, but visit his Tumblr for numerous others.
