Iron Maiden Mascot Eddie Inspired Pop Art At Comic Con
Dan Mumford, who created his take on Powerslave, says: "The epic cover was burned into my brain from an early age. Not only does it raise Eddie up to his rightful god status - it allowed me to play with some incredible imagery, and create a piece that hopefully does him and the band justice."
Maiden manager Rod Smallwood says: "Eddie has long been recognised by our fans as an iconic figure. That Pop Culture, which draws upon movies, art, comics and literature, should wish to welcome him to their ranks is a huge tribute to his longevity, unique symbolism and importance to millions of fans around the world.
"With such a rich canvas and so much love for the character, it is fitting that he stands inside Acme Archives with his peers. And of course terrorises them all." Check out the artwork here.
