Artist Creates Disturbing Comics That ‘reveal’ Behind-the-scenes of Popular Characters

Most of us grew up watching Disney movies, Pokémon, Dragon Ball, and so many other cartoons that influenced us in one way or another. There was always a happy ending, and before facing that harsh reality ourselves, that was something you’d believe without even asking twice about other turns that life might take.

Pop culture has shaped our society and our lives, and to explore pop culture icons in an alternate reality that reflects our current situation, Mexican artist Alex Solis decided to take these well-known characters and add a weird and even disturbing twist to them. 

Earthwonders reached out to Alex to ask him more about his work.

Alex Solis

Migrated to the USA at a very young age, a lot of his humble upbringings have shaped the way he views pop culture, art, the world, and has played a major role in conversating with his art. Pop culture shapes our society and our lives. In this series, Alex explores pop culture icons in an alternate reality that reflects our current society. Alex’s main goal is to help people see things from another perspective or at least feel a little bit nostalgic about their childhood.

The artist shared with us a little bit about his working process: “Parody work I feel is extremely challenging, some ideas come easier than others, but the challenge is being able to present a different perspective to something that is already engraved in our culture, I do try to stick with characters I’m familiar with and stuff that has been apart of my life, to pick the characters, understand their personalities etc, that makes the concepts work better.”

Starting a series called “Unpopular Culture”, Alex illustrates a disturbing story about what happens behind the scenes of famous characters. If you’re not a big fan of dark humor, and unexpected twists, then these comics will probably give you a bad taste of your childhood. Below we have made a selection of some of his work, so scroll down to check it out and enjoy.

His work was published in over 360 newspapers and is shared all over the internet. So if his work seems to you familiar it might be that you have seen them before.

“His humor is inspired partly by his own real-life situations and partly by the eccentric thoughts that pop into his overly active mind. Dan has a rare talent for ruffling feathers with scathing commentary on the mindlessness of modern life, then smoothing them down with his disarming humor, charm, and self-deprecating humility.

His style is very unique and it reminds you of some vintage comics that usually our parents read in the bathroom while of course doing their thang. However, their context is entirely modern-ish twists. Dan manages to create a clever storyline and do the punchline in one panel
