Modern vs Vintage

I was wondering how to present these ten modern paperworks I recently scanned – and I thought let’s see if I can twin them up with vintage counterparts. A sort of new versus old. Shiny versus retro. It took me a while to go through my archives looking for suitable matchups – especially anything vintage I might have with Spider-woman on it! Ultimately it was a fun exercise involving adverts and comic covers. Here are the results…Β  (click pics to go bigger)

Spider-woman. 2008 vs 1980.

Hulk. 2008 vs 1977.

Superman. 2013 vs 1979

Wrestling. 2008 vs 1989

G.I. Joe. 2009 vs 1988

2000 AD. 2017 vs 1988

Doctor Who. 2013 vs 1979

Playmobil. 2014 vs 1978

Lego. 2014 vs 1978

Iron Man. 2014 vs 1978

Thanks for looking πŸ™‚

        It’s also crazy to see what an instant nostalgic time warp those ads were! It immediately took me back to my youth. And you’re right, it’s kind of cool to see how some of these iconic lines have continued through the years. It lets generations have this sort of flashback then :).
