This weekend, artist collective The Autumn Society will host The 80s POP Show!, an exhibition of "artwork inspired by movies, cartoons, and video games from the amazing and imaginary era of the 1980s" at Brave New Worlds Comics in Philadelphia. The show opens June 5th at 6 PM and will run until June 7th.

The show will feature over 50 pieces covering familiar faces from the decade, such as the Ghostbusters, Alf, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Inspector Gadget, ThunderCats, Super Mario Bros., and many others. Says the exhibit's organizers, "This show is bound to delight and spark great memories from this magical time, filled with memorabilia, long haired superheroes, and candy colored good times."

Artist Jude Buffum, who we previously featured for his Ich Bin 8-Bit Installation, will have two pieces there reimagining Rainbow Brite, the Care Bears, and Strawberry Shortcake as Mortal Kombatants. I hope American Greetings doesn't catch wind of this, considering the tiff Penny Arcade had with the company back in 2003!

You can see Jude Buffum's work, as well as another piece and The 80s POP Show!'s poster below:
