When Stephen King Meets Superheroes

[Marco D’Afonso]

Via Comic Book Resources comes an art contest that’s better than any I’ve seen recently. The idea was simple: Combine beloved comic book character with a beloved Stephen King novel. The result? We get Deadpool surfing on the Overlook Hotel’s hallway river of blood.

But that’s not all! Many talented artists tried their hand at the concept, which you can check out below. My favorites are probably Harley and The Joker in Misery, and “The Northeast Avengers.” You’ll see. So, who wants to make Wolverine Roland from The Dark Tower? I feel like they have similar attitudes.

  • Sam

    That’s definitely an awesome series. But, that’s Gwen Stacy, not Mary Jane.

    Freakin’ great. Now I’m not going to be able to sleep until I see that Northeast Avengers one happen for reals.

    Hollywood should take note and do that Deadpool movie, that way they can kill 2 birds with one stone: do that Shining sequel they’re planning and the Deadpool movie
