If there's one thing I know about people on the Internet, it's that there's nothing they love more than when a piece of art combines one pop culture thing with another pop culture thing. It's up there with adorable pictures of two different kinds of animals being friends on the list of things that people just cannot get enough of.
Okay, I kid, but I'll be honest: I love a good pop-culture mashup more than anyone, and I've rarely seen them done better than when I checked out Yehudi Mercado, a writer, director and artist whose work is often the perfect blend of two of our favorite things. Whether it's the Muppets and Game of Thrones or a line of action figures based on Community that I desperately want, they're all pretty awesome. Check out some highlights below!

Things have been up and down for the NBC comedy Community lately, with a fantastic three-part season finale that included an 8-bit episode featuring the cast as video game characters (that's good!), the news that the fan-favorite show would return for a fourth season (that's good!) but that it would do so withou
March comes in like a lion and out like...a dire wolf? April means we finally get a new season of HBO's Game of Thrones, with the next chapter in the war for the Iron Throne. While the rest of us have been waiting out the long winter, fan artists have been busy illustrating this clash of kings, but not with the Starks and Lannisters you might expect. Instead
We've made no secret of our love for the brilliant and comics-friendly NBC sitcom Community, which recently featured Abed in a cameo role as Batman and an '80s influenced anime sequence. Now, artist Ben Deguzman has imagined the cast as Batman's rogue gallery. What do you think of the pair
Allow me to be the millionth person to say this about last night's episode of Community: This isn't the sitcom we deserve... it's the sitcom we need. And last night's episode was the perfect example of why. It involved the pretty typical sitcom s
If you're not familiar with the frankly brilliant NBC comedy Community, then you are not only part of the reason the show is currently in unscheduled limbo, but you're also missing out on the best sitcom on television (sorry, Parks and Rec). It's ok, though, because you can
