Yay! Legends Every Day explores genre fiction’s greatest rib-ticklers.

By Daniel Barron


The genres of science fiction and fantasy can be fertile grounds for exploring socio-political allegories, moral quandaries, and pontifications on man’s place in the universe. Or it can be used for stories involving sentient farts and time-traveling stoners. What, they can’t all be Phillip K. Dick. Before we resume our regularly-scheduled heady af programming enjoy a lighter side of Yay! Legends Every Day as our stable of artists show what happens when high-concept meets low-brow.

Hey, if it’s that kind of party I’ll fuck a were-o-dile!

The Venture Bros. (2004) – Kate Kennedy

“I Am The Bat”

Medium: watercolor and digital

Size: 9×12″

“I was planning on only doing one piece for Yay! Legends Every Day, but when I saw The Venture Bros. was available I jumped on it!  It’s my absolute favorite cartoon show and always has me rolling.  My dad also gets a big kick out of the show and we enjoy watching it together when I visit.  One running joke I especially like is Hank’s obsession with Batman.  So I chose to do a mashup of The Dark Knight Rises and the “Venture Libre” episode where Hank becomes ‘The Bat’ and finally has his moment.

Hank would advise against a big crab dinner before fighting crime.  John D. Wiltshire helped lay out the digital parts for me.”
