Storytime” is an illustrated series by Joe Spiotto. Here he took famous characters from modern pop culture and placed them on imaginary classic children’s book covers. Among these were Alex DeLarge from “A Clockwork Orange”, Patrick Bateman from “American Psycho,” Daenerys Targaryen from “Game of Thrones,” Marty McFly and Doc from “Back to the Future”, and Edward from “Edward Scissorhands”. “Storytime” is not only cute, it’s also imaginative as it successfully pulls off making even some of the most feared villains, for example, look absolutely cute!
