Pop culture and art go hand in hand like peanut butter and bananas. Those two things seem like an unlikely pairing, but when combined the results can be pretty awesome.

Artist J Salvador has created some of the most adorable geek art you will ever see. He took pop culture icons and turned them into sad little characters that will break your heart and make you love them at the same time. Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Batman already have very sad stories, but J Salvador depicted them as they feel on the inside. Superheroes are not the only ones that have a sad story. Down below you will also see art work from some of the saddest movie moments, like when Atreyu’s horse sinks into a mud pit in The Neverending Story.

Be sure to check out all his other lovely creations on his Super Emo Friends website. Make sure to follow his Facebook page, and if you like the art and want it for yourself you can check out the Super Emo Friends Etsy store.
