game of thrones X-men main

This is what happens when the cover of Uncanny X-Men #141 gets a Game Of Thrones twist. When you think about it, you have to be a superhero to survive in Westeros, so it makes sense.

Here’s what creators Comfort Love and Adam Withers had to say about why they did the project:

“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.”

colour me good benedict cumberbatch

For those who fancy coloring books, and lots of people do, here’s a Benedict Cumberbatch one for you*.

This coloring book by Mel Elliott of I Love Mel is part of her “Colour Me Good” line and even includes added games and fun. It contains 16 black line drawings and is printed on 150g Ecoplex paper, which is recycled, so it’s even environmentally friendly.

Benedict would like that, I bet. Mmmmm….Benedict.

You can see a few of the pages after the break.

Ghostbusters is turning 30 this year, and that means all kinds of celebrations. Besides finally getting an official LEGO set, there is also going to be a huge art show featuring the work of more than 70 artists.

time is a flat circus

One of the great things about Tumblr is that it gives gifts you never knew you needed or wanted until you’re presented with them. In this case, it’s a new Tumblr called Time Is A Flat Circus which I happily stamp with the “True Detective 2″ meme and present to you.

See what I’m talking about after the break.

gravity poster top

Movie posters often feature a small quote from a critic two (usually something along the lines of “brilliant!” or “film of the year!”), to entice you to see the flick. But these movie posters by @AwfulReviews are on the opposite end of the spectrum: each poster features quotes from the movie’s 1-star Amazon reviews. And, wow, they’re pretty brutal—but also entertaining.

Check out some more examples after the break…

sw funeral 1

Jack Robinson only had four years on this planet. He’s been fighting against an inoperable brain tumor and knowing that he faced a hard road, he made a bucket list that included meeting singer Gary Barlow and and actor Matt Smith. For his final wish, he requested a Star Wars-themed funeral, and his parents Terence and Marie Robinson made it happen when he passed on April 1st of this year.

A Star Wars-themed coffin was transported in a carriage surrounded by stormtroopers, and R2-D2 was at the service. “Binary Sunset” was played by a brass band. Jack Robinson got the unique send off he requested and deserved.

There are a few more heartbreaking photos after the break.

New York-based artist and illustrator Sam Spratt usually focuses much of his artistic talent developing art pieces for his various clients (who range from National Geographic Channel to Donald Glover), but he recently shifted his attention over towards GoT and created a beautiful illustration of everyone’s favorite Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen.
