Check Out These Superheroes from A to Z with the Help of Helvetica

April 30, 2012

Helvetica Heroes - Captain America

For those who don't know just how prominent the font known as Helvetica has become in advertising and art, you might want to take a gander at the documentary of the same name (available to Watch Instantly on Netflix) which takes an in-depth look at the history and use of the font in mass media. Now French graphic design student René Mambembe has created a series of A to Z posters featuring superheroes in Helvetica font. Well, they're not all superheroes as there's one for Alien and another for Terminator and other famous sci-fi characters, but this is still a cool collection of nerd art. Check some of them out below!

Here are just some of the A to Z Helvetica Hero Posters from

Check out the rest of the alphabet (including a couple variations on the same letter) at There you'll find Helvetica renditions of Terminator, some Street Fighter characters, a bunch of other superheroes (along with a smattering of their villains too), and more. In addition, you can also buy prints of some of these pieces. Just check out the long line of posters and see which are available for purchase. Cool?
