This week sees the release of the highly anticipated Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover from IDW Comics… But that got us thinking: what other dream crossovers would we like to see? Particularly as there’s so many licensed properties in comics, and that’s the only place – not the movie theater, or on TV – where these types of crossovers can finally happen. Here’s our picks for ten comic book crossovers which would have our geek buzzers going for months:

10. G.I. Joe vs. Dungeons and Dragons

Crossovers like this don’t make sense on the surface, but heck, that’s what comics are for – making crazy ideas work. And sure there might be too many characters, but seeing the tech savvy Joes thrust into a fantasy world would be worth it!

It’s a tricky thing to be a fan of Army of Darkness, particularly as – before the comic books, at least – there isn’t a whole lot of it. There’s the movie, of course, and you could say there’s even two more (Evil Dead, and Evil Dead II), though the Venn diagram of Evil Dead fans and Army of Darkness fans doesn’t always intersect, weirdly enough, given AoD is the third movie in the series.

But then there were the comics, and for a time, they were good. Dark Horse collaborated with Evil Dead creator Sam Raimi to release a graphic novelization, and then later there was a semi-ongoing series of linked minis. Later still, Army of Darkness crossed over with Marvel’s then popular Marvel Zombies franchise, somewhere in there the title moved over to Dynamite Enertatinment, and hero Ashley J. Williams even saved President Obama from undead comic book fans. Read More...

Beginning in February, Dynamite is launching an ongoing Army of Darkness comic written by Elliott R. Serrano (Army of Darkness: Ash Saves Obama) with art by Marat Mychaels (Grimm Fairytales, Deadpool Corps). The new series goes right ahead and genderswaps Ash as the deadite threat infects not only the known universe but unknown, parallel ones, too. Read More...

Hot on the news that "Danger Girl" would return to comics in the first-time Dynamite/IDW collaboration "Danger Girl and the Army of Darkness," MTV Geek interviewed writer Andy Hartnell to get the full scoop on one of the most exciting and offbeat mash-ups of the year!

MTV Geek: How did the mash-up between Danger Girl and Army of Darkness come about?

Andy Hartnell: I guess it all started early last year as we began preparing our Danger Girl Deluxe Edition - the oversized hardcover collection of the original series that’s just been released by IDW Publishing. Our plan was to follow that book with several all-new Danger Girl adventures. Somewhere around that same time, Nick Barrucci over at Dynamite Entertainment shot us the idea for a Danger Girl/Army of Darkness crossover event. Kind of a weird and really out-there idea at first, but then it really wound up to be a pretty exciting mix.

Geek: What made the mix of super-spy action and horror-comedy seem like a good fit for you?

Hartnell: Well, you have the character of Abbey Chase, who’s this gorgeous, intelligent, and highly-skilled adventuress, and then you have Ash, who’s really just a bumbling loudmouth who happens to be pretty clever with a chainsaw. So it’s seeing the way these two wildly different characters interact and struggle while trying to accomplish their common goal that’s pretty entertaining. And they’ve both got some experience with tracking down supernatural antiquities, so that helps bring them together as well.

Geek: You've written Ash before in the “Ashes to Ashes” miniseries. How were you able to find the character's voice and still bring something unique to readers?

Hartnell: I really dig how much the character changed while making his way through the Evil Dead trilogy - going from that squeaky, boring and mild-mannered dweeb in Evil Dead to the really wild and wise-cracking badass we all know and love from Army. But now, Ash isn’t leading a bunch of peasants and simpletons into Read More...

We all know it’s coming: sooner or later, the dead will walk the Earth, chomping on the brains of the living like there’s no tomorrow. AND THERE WILL BE NO TOMORROW. Cough. Anyway, luckily for all of us, we’ve had hundreds of comic books doing pretty much nothing except prepare us for the rise of our undead overlords. So here’s ten handy tips you should remember when you start to see your neighbor shambling down the street, looking a little worse for the wear.

1. Acceptance

It’s a zombie apocalypse, so GET OVER IT. Stop pretending you’ve never seen a zombie movie, or whining, and saying that it’s the real world, and zombies don’t exist, like in Archaia’s Awakening. The town of Park Falls refusing to accept they have a zombie problem for nearly a year, just because it usually is something straight out of fiction. Yeah, right, just like aliens, guys. Jeez.

2. Stay Calm and British

Once you’ve accepted the fact that they’re zombies, it might help if you’re the World’s Greatest Detective. No, not Batman. Sherlock Holmes, who battled hordes of the evil undead, as well as his archenemy Moriarity in Wildstorm’s Victorian Undead. All the while, he kept his cool and smarts around him. So keep a stiff upper lip, and you might live to see another day, old chap. Read More...
