DC Minimalist Poster and Faux Firestorm Cover by Dustin

Below is one of the neatest poster ideas I’ve seen! Dustin Koetsch (a.k.a. Dustin Von Doom, Dustin Wildcard, and Dustin Ω) designed several “minimalist posters” based upon the costumes of DC Comics characters. He then took several of them and created the amazing collage below. You can find this on his deviantART page. Click the image below to enlarge and see if you can name all the characters!

Below is a close-up of the Firestorm minimalist poster from Dustin’s Tumblr page. I love the creases and folds in the poster! Looks genuinely old! Based upon the electron paths (white lines), I’m guessing he modeled this design from a later Firestorm costume or action figure. You’ll notice there are three electron paths on the left, but only two on the right. That occurred on Jason’s post-Infinite Crisis costume, and on several recent action figures (regardless of the incarnation of Firestorm).  /end nerdy analysis.

As a bonus, check out this super-cool faux Firestorm cover also designed by Dustin! He created it using pages and covers with the character. Such a gorgeous design! You can find this on Dustin’s deviantART page.

    I have to get started on my minimalist Swampy..

    Man, Firestorm lends well to reinterpretation – those groovy colors, I suspect..

    Thanks for IDing the artist for us, Shag. And thanks to Dustin for the work!

    Hey guys! Thanks for the comments!

    @ArthurMacArthur – Isn’t Swamp Thing already sort of minimalist? :)

    @liquidcross – Four days later and I’m STILL laughing at your comment! LOL!

    @Boosterrific – Glad I could help! I’m tempted to make a joke here comparing this situation and the characters we blog about. Y’know, like Professor Stein is really thorough and does his research. However, Booster Gold is all about the quick fix, no thought towards other people. But I don’t want to do that. I wouldn’t want to insult Booster Gold like that. Yup, not going to make those jokes. :)

    Glad to see you’re not taking advantage of the situation for the cheap shot, Shag.

    @Boosterrific – I’m glad you recognize I’m above all that.
