Pablo Stanley Honors Freddie Mercury's Death With 'Don't Stop Me Now' Comic Strip (PHOTO)

If you ever wanted to see Queen frontman and rock god Freddie Mercury as a superhero, unicorn rider or racecar driver, look no further.

This new comic strip by Pablo Stanley captures the spirit of Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" so well we swear we can feel Mercury hitting those high notes. The music-savvy cartoonist, who recently translated the Beatles into graphic form, told The Huffington Post of his new work: "I just wanted to share this comic I made from the lyrics of Queen 'Don't Stop Me Now' in honor of Freddie Mercury's death anniversary." The British singer died on November 24, 1991.

Check out the comic below; we highly recommend blasting the song for the full experience.
