GAME OF THRONES and X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Mashup Art
With HBO's Game of Thrones back in full swing and FOX's X-Men: Days of Future Past a hot topic of discussion since the final trailer was released, I thought I'd post this fun piece of mashup art for the two franchises! It a Game of Thrones illustration based on the comic cover of Uncanny X-Men #141, which is what X-Men: Days of Future Past is based on. The illustration was done by Comfort Love and Adam Withers, and this what they had to say about it on their site:
"So, this was an idea that Adam was shocked - SHOCKED - had not been done yet. When it occurred to him, he scoured the Googles to see whether anybody else had done it, but nothing came up. So here he is, sitting on this goldmine idea. In case anybody isn’t getting the reference, this piece is an homage to the classic John Byrne cover to Uncanny X-Men #141 - the start of the Days of Future Past storyline. With the upcoming movie, you’ll probably be seeing this cover more often. Adam selected Dany, Tyrion, and Jon for the front because they seem to have the strongest “Plot Armor.” Whatever else might appear to happen to them, I suspect we’ll be seeing them through to the end of the story. Though god knows I could be wrong. That Martin SOB loves toying with our emotions."
