Game of Thrones (Spoilers)



Personal piece, 2014; Pencil, Photoshop PS5.

***UPDATED: Now current through all of season 6***

***PLEASE! For the sake of anyone looking or reading the comments - NO BOOK SPOILERS! We can talk about what's happened so far, but not the stuff that hasn't happened yet.*** We're past what the books can show, so I guess everybody's on even ground, now.

So, this was an idea that I was shocked - SHOCKED - had not been done yet. When it occurred to me, I scoured the Googles to see whether anybody else had done it, but nothing came up. So here I am, 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.

I selected Danny, 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.

Here's a detail compilation of the headshots from the poster without all the postery effects:

That cover is rich ground for shout-outs and parodies.

This is my favorite so far, not least because of the casual tone those paste-over labels take:

LIID 106: Reboots of Future Past!

It also helped with some frustrations over one or two things. As a man, I was left feeling sheepish when I told folks not into comics about what neat characters Harley and Starfire were.
