As a kid, I definitely found villains and anti-heroes more automatically interesting, but as an adult I’m generally more interested in the superhero. Even my favorite comic book hero — Batman — is interesting to me for different reasons now.
I just happened across this series entitled After Master by Yin Xin. By far my faourite is the Birth of Venus. Yin has taken classic master paintings and replaced their Western subjects with Chinese ones. LOVES IT.
