Marvel x Star Wars by Robert Shane


I have seen a few really cool mash ups with characters owned by Disney and the Star Wars characters ever since the merger of the two conglomerates last year, but none are more interesting than the few that artist Robert Shane have thrown together. Robert decided to attack the mash ups through the aspect of the Marvel branch of Disney... and boy did he give it a hell of an effort! He choose three candidates (Iron Man, Doctor Doom and Nick Fury) and found great counterparts from the Star Wars universes for them (Storm Troopers, Darth Vader, and Mace Windu) in his pieces. These are absolutely amazing, and my fave has to be the Doctor Doom/Darth Vader one. Great execution of a great idea... no matter how obvious the connections may be! Shane still had to execute them, and he did so to perfection. Check out all of his cool ass art here over at his Deviant Art page, and see the three Marvel x Star Wars pieces after the jump...

  1. These are pretty great. Doom looks great mashed-up with Vader...and I'd never think to mash the S.S. up with Iron Man ...but it works!
