Today’s entry marks the 100th post in the Weekend Versus feature! And I thought this would be a good time to go out with a bang, at least temporarily. Yes, WW is going on hiatus for a bit. I’m sure it’ll return in due time, but for now, let’s enjoy this last look at comic book crossover conflicts.

After the write-up I did of the horrible 90s “parody” publisher Spoof Comics in this post, I was left with a few unused comic covers. So here for your reading enjoyment (torture) is a look at conflicts, Spoof-style. First up, Spoon vs Batbabe::

See, Spoon is just like Spawn, except she has a bunch of spoons tacked on to her costume! Isn’t that clever? Isn’t that just devilishly humorous?

And next, Goat Rider vs. Moobius:

I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but with a name like Goat Rider, it would have made more sense to have the character ride a flaming goat, instead of the same motorcycle Ghost Rider rides. At least that would present some potentially funny visuals. But that’s just me. Man, and that cow humor never gets old, eh?

Good job, Spoof Comics. You’ve once again proved why you only existed during the terrible 90s, the Dark Age of comics.

And with that, Weekend Versus bids you a fond adieu…at least for now.

      Oddly enough, The Goat is actually associated with Satanism, and the occult in general, which, if I remember correctly, Ghost Rider was about a guy that sold his soul to Mephisto, the Devil, to save …someone, and the deal was he had to be come a servant in exchange. Right? Obviously, this is not something Spoof Comics considered, but… just weird. Those covers are hideous.

      Yup, there’s no way this Goat Rider comic could have maximized the filth the name applies. This monologue popped in my head on site of seeing the cover…

      ‘Buddy, you gotta ride that goat. ride it haaaaaarrd. He kicks like a caged hurricane but so worth it. Baa you lil’ bastard’

      Leave it to Tom to cross the line!

      “Caged hurricane -” Wow, I gotta use that someday.
