In a mash-up made in nerd heaven, Billboard reports that one of today’s most forward looking bands, The Flaming Lips, will be featured on the pages of Marvel’s ‘X-Men 92’ comic.
In the upcoming Issue #6 (August), Professor X’s band of misfits meets another when the Flaming Lips visit the X-Men universe. Today (May 11) Billboard is excited to debut the cover of that issue, which features Wolverine slashing Sentinels while Wayne Coyne looks on quizzically.
“Being in an X-Men comic where they (the X-Men themselves) actually run security at one of our shows… I should have written a song about that,” Coyne says. “I mean… before it really happened.”
