Robot Chicken DC Comics Art Show Seahorses and All

Do seahorses dying in battle make you laugh or do you just like making fun of Aquaman and his powers?

For one night only Robot Chicken crashed the iam8bit gallery on Sunset. They celebrated their upcoming Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise with a collaboration show all in the name of charity and everyone was invited.

Seth Green and Matt Senreich the creators of Robot Chicken welcomed the crowd on the one night charity art auction last Friday, March 28. Before showing a teaser for their new special mocking DC comics heroes and villains Seth was praised for his contributions to the OPCC's Turning Point Charity. One of it's members told the crowd, "Tonight due to your generosity fifty-five people won't be homeless."

Matt Senreich gave us a short interview about his thoughts about the show.

The open to all Robot Chicken DC Comics Art Show had a wide variety of oddball art from depraved comic covers to a collection of seahorses as DC characters. The show featured art from both Robot Chicken staff and comic artists.

The seashorses gag is an in-joke making fun of Aquaman and you won't fully get it until you watch the upcoming special. Sprucing up so many seahorses to look like Cyborg or Joker was clearly the work of those with special minds.

Along the seahorses playing dress-up were specially signed Robot Chicken DC comic covers that will be coming out in April along-side the special's premiere. The covers take no mercy while mocking DC comics and there's more that one making fun of Green Lantern.

More comic covers here at the Comic Cover Gallery

Seahorses and comic covers were only a part of the show as the back gallery featured artwork from Robot Chicken staff and comic artists making puns of Robot Chicken and DC together or anything they though might make fun of DC's costumed cape community.

Those in attendance could be photo captured and put in their own short comic with props of word balloons and fake mouths.

The Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise premieres on April 6th at 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Adult Swim.
