X-Men / Game of Thrones Fan Art Mashup — Days of Future Past

X-Men_Vol_1_141Not only is the Days of Future Past X-Men story­line one of the iconic and defin­ing stories of 80s comics, but Uncanny X-Men 141 also has one of the most iconic covers in comics. This one to be precise:

Even if you haven’t ever read the comics (or even any comics) it’s likely you’ve seen some vari­ant on this cover by John Byrne.

Well… now it’s time for a new vari­ant, this time a mashup with Game of Thrones. Which does make a very suit­able target given the death rate in the stories. I suppose tech­ni­cally this is a spoiler if you’re not caught up with the last season of Game of Thrones, but it’s actu­ally already out of date for this season and way… way out of date for the books.

Appar­ently Adam chose these three char­ac­ters to appear in front of the poster because he felt they were likely the most likely to survive the story. I’m making no comment on that assump­tion.
