An artist has created gorgeous comic book covers of some of Black Mirror’s most iconic episodes so far...and yes, that includes an image of Porky Pig readying a bottle of lube. It’s about as awkward as it sounds.

The British show has become a cult hit in the US, and recently released its third season on Netflix. In tribute to the Twilight Zone-esque techno-drama, artist Butcher Billy imagined several episodes as comic books. These include “The National Anthem,” “White Bear,” “Nosedive,” “The Entire History of You,” and series-best episode “San Junipero.”

Show creator Charlie Brooker loved them so much, he reached out to the artist to see about ordering some prints. Right now, they’re available on the artist’s website. He also has a collection dedicated to Stranger Things, which imagines Eleven as the new Superman. I can see it.

These include “The National Anthem,” “White Bear,” “Nosedive,” “The Entire History of You,” and series-best episode “San Junipero.”

I haven’t made my way through all of season 3 yet, but I’m cautiously looking forward to San Junipero since I’ve heard such good things about it and want to see if it’s the definitive best episode—I’m not convinced there actually is one for this series. In all my conversations on it, it’s been most interesting to see which episodes resonate. The nerve that each one hits is unique to the viewer and that’s one of the reasons I find it so brilliant.

(ETA: in any case, this art is fantastic.)
