Is your love of psychedelic rock only rivaled by your love of comics, specifically, those of the Marvel variety? Boy, do we have news for you! The Flaming Lips will be entering the 2D world very, very soon.

X-Men '92 is a currently published Marvel comic set in the '90s X-Men continuity, as Pitchfork reports, and Wayne Coyne and crew are set to star in a new issue. Sick, right?

Coyne said of the plot:

"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. I mean...before it really happened."

We agree. It's not too late, man! While we've got you, peep some hot shots from the time Coyne toured with Miley Cyrus by clicking right here. It's a weird age we live in.
