The Saddest Thing At WonderCon: Super Emo Friends
By Armi Dimaranan on April 21, 2014
It’s hard not to get caught up in the excitement of WonderCon. There were a slew of incredible collectible comics and figurines, awesome cosplays, and a swarm of nerds willing to rant on about the latest and greatest in nerdom. Sadly, the scene wasn’t so cheerful for everyone at WonderCon, especially when folks stumbled upon the Super Emo Friends booth.
Created by artist J. Salvador, he reimagines the truth behind beloved comic and pop culture characters in a way too honest and depressing manner. From Rogue’s “I just want to cuddle” to Harley Quinn’s “He doesn’t love me,” you just can’t help but break a little on the inside and want to hug the little 5×7 portraits till they’re all better.
Grab some tissues and take a look at some of the Super Emo Friends images yourself:
