Butcher Billy Brings Goth Icons to Riverdale in His Post-Punk Paperbacks Series

Brazilian Illustrator Butcher Billy is back with his Post-Punk Paperbacks series inspired by Archie Comics. Covers include old-school Riverdale versions of Siouxsie, Ian Curtis, Peter Murphy, plus Robert Smith and Morrissey—whose long-awaited brawl finally plays out in pulp-Americana glory.

Billy, who has in recent years caught the attention of Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker, resulting in his illustrations ´being included part of the plot of several episodes of the Netflix series, took to Instagram this morning to announce the new artworks, which follow his Marvel and DC Post-Punk comic covers.
