Check out these two awesome pieces of poster art. The first comes from Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, which is a homage to his well-known cover to The New Mutants #98, which was the first appearance of the character. When talking about the art during an interview with Fandango, Liefeld said:
“The cover to New Mutants #98 has become an iconic image, and it is the comic that introduced Deadpool and Domino to the world. New Mutants #98 has become a key image in the comic book pantheon, so I thought it would be great to pay homage with the movie cast… and I gotta be honest, man — it turned out better than I imagined! I teamed up with a guy named Mike Capprotti, who I have worked with several times on many Deadpool covers. He has such a beautiful palette, and so we jammed together and came up with this great piece.”
He went on to say:
“I didn’t know that I was going to get a chance to recreate the cover of New Mutants #98 with actors as all these characters. That was my calling card. I brought the world Cable, Deadpool, Domino, and it changed the course of my career. It gave me the career that I’ve had, and so it was just a pleasure [to pay homage]. And now the fact that it’s going to be a poster with Fandango! Fandango’s a big deal. That’s huge. It’s my pinch-me moment.”
