These Are Some Serious Superhero Sculpts

These great sculptures by Calvin Ma casts an oddly frumpish light on spandex clad superfolks. They look emo, bored with life and overweight. These are what action figures must look like in the Bizarro world, with catchphrases like "why bother?" and "i'll get to it later". And, looking at his website, all of Calvin's sculpts look like action figures, even the bronzes!

Yeah, I figured the articulated look was intentional. The style just creeps me out. I liked his other work better than the superheroes - more thought-provoking.

He certainly has the technical skills, and shows imagination.

However, it's like he built them in pieces and assembled them, but didn't bother to try and hide the join lines. It's disconcerting.

And that's too bad, because he has some interesting pieces - superheroes not so much.
