What do you get when you mix Game of Thrones with John Byrne’s iconic Uncanny X-Men #141 cover? Pure geeky awesomeness!
The idea came to creators Comfort Love and Adam Withers to give the über famous X-Men cover an epic Game of Thrones makeover, switching beloved X-Men characters for familiar faces from HBO's hit fantasy series Game of Thrones.
One of the authors said:
"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."
