f you’ve never heard of BlueWater Comics, don’t get your Batman panties in a twist. Most comic nerds overlook the oeuvre of the graphic novel company, which produces series about celebrities (under its FAME line), politicians (Political Power), and famous women (the Female Force series). So basically, if you love reading comics not because anything interesting happens in them, but because regular stories are too hard to read without the pictures, then BlueWater is for you.
The latest issue from the BlueWater catalog is The Royals: Prince William and Kate Middleton. And though you’ll have to wait until March to read the highly engaging story of two people who looked like they’ve been airbrushed by some guy working at the t-shirt store on the Boardwalk, we’ve compiled a whole gallery of our favorite celebrity renditions for you to enjoy right now!

If there’s one Thanksgiving tradition we look forward to every year it’s the presidential pardon of the hand turkey. Wherein our commander-in-chief looks over an array of festive drawings and selects one to take down from the Oval Office mini fridge, thereby saving its creator a season of embarrassment. Because hand turkeys are goofy, right? If you’re a grown-up human being and not a toddler, that is. So we decided to look outside the fist and found some creative interpretations of the illustrious hand turkey genre.
Still excited about Prince William‘s engagement to Kate Middleton? Well get in line — behind the folks in this gallery, specifically. DeviantART has a whole section of fan art dedicated to the Prince of Wales and we went through and picked out favs. Though unfortunately there’s nary a crazy hat to be seen. More
Kanye West is sick of hearing about the Taylor Swift thing, you guys! Unfortunately for him, the world isn’t quite recovered from its “Imma let you finish” fever. In honor of Mr. West’s tweetspolosion and the Kanye/Taylor parody porno that’s reportedly in the works, we thought we’d add fuel to the fire with a fan art battle. Take a look at our gallery and vote for the pop star you think has the most talented devotees. More
Here at Crushable, the great Harry Potter vs. Twilight debate rages on. And we’ve taken it to the realm of fan art! We scoured DeviantART for some of the best drawings created by devotees of the two franchises, and now the decision is in your hands. So give the gallery a look (and be honest, now!) and vote for the fan art you like best. More
Grinning Kenneths, sandwich chomping Liz Lemons and handsome, handsome Jacks: some pretty rad artists took on one of our very favorite shows. (Though sadly, Dr. Spaceman was left out — we’re officially sounding the clarion call here, people!) Get ready for Thursday night early with our gallery of DeviantART’S best 30 Rock tributes.
We’re all painfully aware that lately James Franco‘s been billing himself more as an artist than an actor. But did you know the Pineapple Expersser is also an artists’ muse? We had a hunch that if we searched around a little we’d find some pretty epic James Franco fan art, and we were right! A whole darn gallery’s worth of right.
We knew Glee attracts a musical theater crowd, but we had no idea how many amazing illustrators were into the show as well. From portraits of Puck to imagined renderings of the kids’ high school yearbook photos, these drawings run the Glee gamut. We might have to decorate the Crushable office with some of this fan-tastic DeviantART work. More
Ariel Schrag is a cartoonist who draws autobiographical graphic novels chock full of wide-eyed versions of the people in her life. Her book Potential, which chronicles Ariel’s (drama filled!) junior year at Berkeley High School, is being developed into a major motion picture. Also a TV writer, Ariel is currently staffed on the jeans-and-tees-centric HBO show How To Make It In America and penned scripts for Seasons 3 and 4 of The L Word. Ariel also writes an epically hilarious web comic with her friend, comedy dude Kevin Seccia, called Ariel and Kevin Invade Everything. More
We often find ourself doodling Don Draper’s chiseled face on notebooks and napkins, but it never looks all that much like Jon Hamm (or Dick Whitman for that matter). But there are some folks out there with both the Mad Men fandom and the artistic skills to bring Don, Joan and Pete to life. We went through DeviantART and picked out some of the best Mad Men-inspired illustration currently gracing the web. More
Digital artist Ashley Gloeb has a serious thing for zombies. She likes zombies so much, in fact, that she devotes her artwork to them on DeviantART; we first noticed Ashley’s work on the site, and included her zombie-fied Audrina Patridge … More
