Weird-Ass Cover Wednesday: Crossover!

Check out this Archie/Jesus/Liberace crossover! You see? Crossovers are always iffy. When you look at the ones below, it seems like they were either trying too hard or nowhere near hard enough.

Star Trek The Next Generation/X-Men: Second Contact.

That's right. This is the second one. There was a previous comic where the X-Men visited Kirk's Enterprise. I've read both and the first one works better primarily because the Next-Generation version had all the characters confused as to which bald guy to follow. Also, check out that redhead in the background. Is that Guy Gardner? That'd make this a triple crossover. With phasers! IN SPACE!

G.I. Joe and the Transformers

Guess what decade this is from. Go ahead. I bet you can even guess the year.

Marvel Team-Up #74

No, I didn't photoshop this. Yes, it was during Marvel Team-Up's regular run. Yes, it's every bit as bad as you'd think it would be. Biggest surprise of the issue: Spider-Man put away twice as much coke as Belushi.

Archie Meets The Punisher/The Punisher Meets Archie

SPOILER ALERT! Jughead dies.

To my eternal shame, I own that X-Men/Star Trek comic. Didn't it end with a cliff-hanger going into a prose team-up book? That was a crock. Made me feel like a sucker twice over.

Yeah, that was the one. I nearly bought the novel, as well but I came to my senses.

Dude, you missed the Avengers & David Letterman!!!

Dwayne: Oh, man! You're right! I forgot about that issue. I even own that one.

It's coming back to me. Something about a giant doorknob.

Oh, Assistant Editors' Month, is there nothing you can't do?
