Fan Art Friday: Alex Leighton’s Saturday Morning 80s Bonanza

Alex Leighton (aka Xander 13) is one of the core members of the New Zealand-based animation powerhouse that is Mukpuddy. He also happens to be a pretty big nostalgia nut with enough artistic talent to create some pretty kickass fan art some classic 80s cartoon characters and film stars.

Leighton has recently kicked off a series of “Versus” prints that pit some of our favorites in a battle to the death (or so we can assume) with highlights ranging from The Hulkster Vs The Giant to Kirk Vs Picard and everything geek-laden slobber-knocker in between. I can’t wait to see what else he’s got in the works!
