The word “Chambara” is used to describe a genre of movies in Japan with the focus on sword fighting. They’re very often samurai peroid pieces set somewhere between 1600 and 1868.
Talented deviant artist Alex Mitchell must have wondered what some of America’s most famous superheroes; the Justice League and The Avengers would look like as chambara samrai. We’ve some samples here but it’s worth checking out his portfolio for the full collection.
I especially like the fact that the chambara hero sometimes takes a second or two to work out which hero it is, but when you work it out, it makes perfect sense. These chambara superheroes as re-imagined, not just re-drawn.
