5 comic-book crossovers we’d like to see

Posted Filed under

IDW’s Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover is a delight. However, I can’t help but wonder which other comic-book crossovers which would blow my mind?

Ironically, Scanners is not anywhere amongst the answers…


Godzilla meets Doctor Who’s Third Doctor in ‘Godzilla vs UNIT’

Doctor Who Jon Pertwee

“You are just a man dressed for the opera driving an old yellow car. How are you going to take down Godzilla? You and which army?”
“This one, old chap.”
[Translated from Japanese.]

The Brigadier and his men defending Tokyo against Godzilla; the Doctor attempting to find a non-violent solution; Jo Grant rescuing a group of schoolgirls.

Naturally, the Silurians are behind Godzilla’s awakening. If they can unleash one monster from storage, how many more could they have lying in wait? (I’m hoping for at least Mothra and maybe Anguirius.)


Star Wars meets Firefly in ‘Alliance of the Empire’

Firefly Nathan Fillion

“More than 69 million Earths spinnin’ in the galaxy, and the meek have inherited not a one.”
“We brought down the Emperor with the help of some Ewoks.”
“Shut up, Farm Boy.”

Han Solo and Mal Reynolds. River Tam with dual lightsabres. What more do you want?


Angel meets Sapphire & Steel in ‘Time and Soul’

Sapphire & Steel

“There is something old here, Sapphire. Impossibly old.”
“We have seen older – this is only impossible because it is already dead.”
“If you don’t mind, I’m only 242 years old. Is there something Angel Investigations can help you with?”

Angel’s Los Angeles is where the truly wild things are. Combining centuries-old menaces in an ultra-modern setting brings Sapphire and Steel searching for triggers.

Even though they have taken on Time, the Darkness, the Nostalgia and the Man without a Face – how will they fair against vampires, werewolves and demons? (Oh my.)


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles meets Samurai Pizza Cats in ‘Call the Lawyers!’

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

“As we join our story, the inter-dimensional portal, torn open by the Big Cheese’s latest effort to become a cheerleader, has brought a huge spherical robot ship into little Tokyo. As the Pizza Cats know, this means it must be a Tuesday.

“Whilst our heroes have teamed up with a team of pizza hungry Turtles, Shredder and a man with a brain in his stomach are plotting the animals’ destruction using the Technodrome, but I don’t understand how disco ball spaceship can help anyone now.

“Meanwhile, the Turtles are trying to explain that their rat is not a lunch offering. Will the Pizza Cats catch him by the tail?”


Babylon 5 meets The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy in ‘The Path Most Trodden’

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

“Babylon 5. Space Station, previously affiliated with the Earth Alliance, and the contrarily named League of Non-Aligned Worlds; now part of the Interstellar Alliance.

“A centre for commerce, diplomacy, and extended soliloquies about the nature of existence and the dichotomy of fate and free will. Populated by a veritable bevy of alien life forms, all of which are not hoopy enough to have discovered the Babelfish.

“Interspecies breeding is regulated by colour coding; it is vitally important to know the difference between omnivorous (scarlet) and cannibalistic (vermillion). Insectoid races visiting the station should stick to the Shadows.”
