I’m not a fan of the word “gritty” when it comes to superheroes because it’s often a catch all for dark, angry, violent, etc. So, while I could call these fantastic superhero and villain portraits by Adnan Ali gritty, I’m going with evocative, realistic, violent, and unapologetic.
From Batman Beyond to Deadpool to Tank Girl, Ali puts his own take on these characters and makes them his own.
Enjoy them after the break.
