Ernie the Junkie? Finn the shark-toothed monstrosity? Artist Dan LuVisi has imagined a whole new backstory for your favorite heroes and playful puppets. What would Wreck-It-Ralph look like if he fell off the bad-guy wagon? What would Buzz Lightyear look like as a real space bad ass?

You may remember LuVisi's work from his book Last Man Standing, but now he's working on Popped Culture a series which he describes as, "A pop-culture series based off characters from famous videogames, film, and movies—-but in an alternate and wildly disturbing universe." Which means Bert gets sent to the Vietnam War and comes back to save Ernie from his smack habit. Fun!

These are a mix of awesome re-imaginings coupled with a nightmare-fuel psychosis. I was doing OK until they got to Donald Duck. Wreck-it Ralph actually works pretty well, and I can absolutely see Bert and Ernie as a bunch of strung-out gangbangers.
