Dark Fantasies: Collections of Art Inspired by Comic Con

“Obelisk” ($1,429) by Alexey Adonin

Every year, Hollywood releases a slew of blockbusters intended to thrill audiences with an updated take on the end of the world. Whether impending doom is delivered by way of robotic extra-terrestrials, sharks falling from the sky, or even a cataclysmic sinkhole just outside a James Franco party, moviegoers never seem to tire of the spectre of imminent apocalypse. As it turns out, futuristic dystopia is also a popular subject on Saatchi Online…

    There was a time when ComicCon was just as the word describes – a comicbook convention for genuine fans, but in recent years it’s totally sold out as media corporations drain every penny they can out of the faux “geek chic” culture that exists today.

    The real fans aren’t fooled by any of it and avoid such things.
