Artist's beautiful Klimt/Superman mashup shows The Kiss we always wanted

Famed painting The Kiss has never been so delightfully geeky. 

It was in the fourth season opener of Buffy the Vampire Slayer that the world first collectively acknowledged college freshmen's odd fascination with the works of Claude Monet and Gustav Klimt. It seemed for a time that one of their works could be found on the walls of every dorm.

We wouldn't argue that this image is lovely, but it's missing the all-important pop culture angle that the kids crave nowadays. A mashup of varying types is what's needed. And that is precisely what Daniel Irizarri Oquendo has provided with his own rendition of The Kiss.

What we're saying is, why settle for a regular kiss when you can have a super kiss? The next time some vampires start eating college freshmen, we sincerely hope this image will adorn some of their walls. Let a new tradition begin!
