The 90s brought us ridiculously popular Image team books, and ridiculously unfunny send-ups of those team books. Exhibit A: Petworks vs. WildK.A.T.S.



First of all, I'm not sure how much demand there was for a parody of Wetworks and WildC.A.T.S., but at least try and make it look funny. Nothing about that covers tells me this is going to be clever or humorous in any way. I have a feeling even Cracked magazine would have turned this down.

It's the first weekend of 2010, and for our weekly feature, I present to you Xena Warrior Princess vs. Callisto:



Topps, better known for baseball and other collectible trading cards, made a brief foray into publishing comics. Most of their books were licensed properties, such as Zorro, The X-Files, and Xena. Who is Callisto? Um, I don't really know, since I never watched that show. Young Dara would have probably loved it, what with its potent mix of boobs and a fantasy setting. But alas, by the time that show made it to the airways, Young Dara had grown up and while still interested in boobs and the fantasy genre, he no longer had the patience or suspension of disbelief necessary to sit through such a cheesy show for his fix.

We skipped a few weeks, but WV makes its triumphant return this week with Superman vs. Predator:



Huh. Not quite sure what to say about this. I mean, as far as match-ups go, you'd think this would fall into the "one punch and it's all over" category. But maybe that predator has a special kryptonite tri-laser I don't know about. Or Superman had the flu that day.

The oversized one-shot was written by Gerry Conway, with art by Ross Andru. Neal Adams and John Romita provided some character touch-ups as well.

This weekend, let's take another trip down (bad) memory lane to the bad girl craze in comics. And nobody brought the genre to the forefront of mainstream comics better than Image Comics studio/imprint, Top Cow comics. I present for your viewing pleasure, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider vs. The Wolf-Men.



Alternate titles considered, but ultimately rejected:
  • Lara Croft: Helium Boobs vs. Witchblade's Ass (oh, and some werewolves)
  • Lara Croft: Leotard Queen vs. Witchblade with Porn-posing Action ™
  • Lara Croft: Boob Raider vs. TNAblade (with some wolf-men thrown in for good measure)
  • Lara Croft: Empowered Strong Independent Female Character with Guns vs. Some Monsters, featuring Empowered Strong Independent Female Character with Liquid Metal Bikini

I know I brought up this comic recently in a conversation...I think it was with Matt Kish. Anyway, it fits in perfectly with our theme of titanic comic book crossovers for this weekly feature, so without further ado, I give you Robocop vs. Terminator:



This 4-issue limited series was written by Frank "I'm the god damn Batman!" Miller and drawn by Walt "Nobody will match my run on Thor" Simonson. I'll be honest and admit that I don't remember the exact details of the story, but I did buy, read, and actually enjoy this series quite a bit. At least, that's how it is in my memory. But hey, how could you ever go wrong with Simonson art? And this was Frank before he went off the deep end or burned his brain cells out with drugs.

Hmmm, maybe I should dig this out of my longboxes and give it another read...

IDW editor in chief Chris Ryall and artist Ashley Wood have a creator owned series called Zombies Versus Robots, and occasionally they'll up the ante, such as this weekend's feature: Zombies Versus Robots Versus Amazons.



I think the book is just an excuse to have Wood draw what he likes.

That's right. Joss Whedon meets Mary Shelley...via John Byrne. This offering is from IDW, and it just hit the shelves this week. Happy haunting.

This week, we take a look at parody crossovers, because, you know, there's such a big demand for those. Without further ado, I present XXXena vs. Busty.



For a book that's making fun of two shows that use sex appeal as a big selling point, they sure picked a craptacular artist who can't draw a human figure, let alone a feminine one. And if a parody of Xena: Warrior Princess and Buffy the Vampire Slayer wasn't enough, they throw in a South Park parody as well.

Let's see...South Park, a show that's built upon parodies and satire itself...being parodied. Man, that's meta. I bet in this comics, the kids spew kind words instead of profanities.

This weekend, we'll visit the WTF? file with Teknophage vs. Zeerus:



I know, I know, everyone has this book in their collection and it's been discussed and reviewed so many times, it's gotten boring. But I say once a classic, always a classic?

Wait, what? You've never heard of Zeerus? Or Teknophage? Well, does the full title of the book - Neil Gaiman's Teknophage - ring a bell?

Still nothing, eh? That's because when Tekno Comics burst onto the saturated comics scene in the 90s, they paid a bunch of famous people, from Gaiman to Leonard Nimoy to Isaac Asimov and others, to "create" books for them. And by create, I mean comic-book-publisher-version-of-create. Needless to say, that's where the involvement of these famous folks ended. Not surprisingly, Tekno Comics folded once the speculation bubble burst.

But hey, we'll always have this classic to remember them by.

How about a 2-fer this weekend? In the grand tradition of crossovers and superhero slugfests, it doesn't get much bigger than the entire intellectual properties of one corporation duking it out with the entire catalog of licensable products of another. I'm talking about Marvel vs. DC...and DC vs. Marvel.



May the best corporate giant win.

This weekend, we turn the Wayback Machine (© Craig Bogart) to 1987 for Spider-Man vs. Wolverine #1:



Written by Jim Owsley (way before he changed his name to Christopher Priest), with pencils by Mark "Doc" Bright and inks by Al Williamson. Young Dara has fond memories of this book, as it featured a good cold war espionage story, and a no holds barred fight between the two protagonists. If my memory serves me right, this was also a controversial little story, as it features Spider-man inadvertently killing someone. The only disappointing part of this one-shot was that the story, while mostly self-contained, did lead in to Amazing Spider-man #289, a title which I did not follow. Oh well, still a nice little story from Owsley/Priest.

This weekend's titanic clash is Super Heroes vs. Super Villains.



This 68 page one-shot was published by Mighty Comics Group (actually Archie Comics) in 1966, and featured their lineup of costumed heroes that were later purchased by DC. The label "By: Dick, Vic, Bob, and Paul" on the cover refers to the creators featured within, although the only ones I can discern are editor Richard Goldwater and penciller Paul Reinman. Not mentioned on the cover, but apparently the scribe of all the stories, is Jerry Siegel.

Another weekend, another comic book crossover. August is going to be Batman vs. Predator month. Why? Why not, I say.

Here's the cover to the first Batman vs Predator mini-series, jointly published by DC and Dark Horse Comics.:



The cover art is by Chris Warner, who is an editor at DH but started out writing and drawing the near-future post-apocalyptic series Black Cross in the early issues of Dark Horse Presents. The interior featured the pencils of Andy Kubert, with inks by brother Adam. Dave Gibbons provided the script.

Dracula seems to be a very popular public domain character featured in many crossovers. So this week, we take a look at yet another vampire conflict in the world of 4-color comics: Dracula vs. Zorro. .



Topps comics, from what I remember, had a very lackluster output, focusing on licensed properties like The X-Files and Zorro. I can't speak to the quality of this particular mini-series, but it is notable for the beautiful cover art by the much underappreciated Tom Yates.

That's right. On the friggin' moon!

(Conspiracy theory time: I'm pretty sure this cover is a hoax, and that werewolves never battled vampires on the moon. The first clue is the US flag. How can it be rippling in the wind when we all know there's no atmosphere, and hence no wind on the moon? This comic is an elaborate government cover up.)

During the "bad girl" craze of the 90s, venerable indie sexpot character Vampirella made a big comeback, and it seemed like every other month she was involved in some sort of crossover or "special issue". This week, we take a gander at Pantha vs. Vampirella.



Yep, this very special issue was written by current Marvel darling Mark Millar. And no, I don't know how Pantha gets into (or keeps on) those crotch-high boots. It's probably part of her panther powers. Or something.

Sorry for the skip week last weekend. But we're back with another episode of Weekend Versus, and to make up for the oversight, we're presenting a double dose of Dracula.

First up: X-Men vs. Dracula.



While the cover may be from fellow Columbusite Chris Sprouse, the book is actually a reprint of the 1982 X-Men Annual #6. According to the Grand Comics Database, the plot is as follows: "Dracula demands Storm's aid in obtaining the Darkhold so no one else will have the power to banish him, but a dark and sinister Kitty intervenes."

Next, Marvel dishes it out with Spider-man vs. Dracula



The Joe Madureira cover may be new, but the book is yet another reprint, this time of 1974's Giant-Size Spider-Man #1, plus additional stories from Astonishing and Uncanny Tales.

This weekend's crossover comic book: Vampirella vs. Hemorrhage.



Also considered as the title for the book, but ultimately dismissed: Boobs McGee vs. Widow's Peak Man.

Alas, sales of this crossover were not good enough to warrant publication of these other planned Vampirella crossovers:

Vampirella vs. Hematoma
Vampirella vs. Laceration
Vampirella vs. Contusion
Vampirella vs. Aneurysm
Vampirella vs. Arteriovenous Malformation


Also considered, but ultimately rejected, was Vampirella vs. Haemophilia. Editorial consensus (and rightly so) was that it would be a pretty one-sided fight.

Today's ridiculous comic book crossover: Superman and Batman vs. Vampires and Werewolves:



I love Tom Mandrake's moody, dark, evocative artwork. And I recognize the writer, Kevin van Hook, as one of the mainstays of Valiant comics back in the 90s. But I have no idea who hatched this idea, or why it's even necessary.

I am, however, looking forward to the sequel: Superman and Batman and Wonder Woman and Flash and Green Lantern vs. Vampires and Werewolves and Zombies and Monsters and Republicans.

Apparently featuring Purple Electric Tape Lady (TM), she of the world's smallest waist and hands and largest helium balloon boobs.

But you know the best part of this book? It was written by...wait for it...

Alan Moore.

Ok, this weekend I'm going to do something a little different: a crossover that I actually enjoyed:



Wait, say what? Patrulla-X? Oh, right, this book:



This 4-issue limited series, courtesy of Roger Stern, Marc Silvestri, and Joe Rubinstein, had all the action, drama, and 4-color goodness a Young Dara was looking for. Here's a synopsis: "The Avengers try and avert disaster as a giant meteor crashes to Earth; Another meteor falls and Magneto realizes it is a remnant of Asteroid M so he leaves the X-Men behind to see if he can salvage any of his old stuff; The Avengers and Soviet Super-Soldiers figure it out as well and move to intercept him."

Although not a strict Silvestri fan, the comic itself left such a strong impression on Young Dara that we picked it as one of two book covers (the other being Art Adam's cover for X-Men: Heroes for Hope) to recreate as part of his sophomore year high school art class assignment. Behold the magnificence of a young artist at work, capturing every nuance of Silvestri's work, right down to the flat pancake faces on She-Hulk and Rogue:



Alas, Young Dara's artistic career was cut short by a tragic racquetball accident. But at least he still has his old sketchbooks...and his memories.

       Weekend Versus

OK, one more 90s "dark ages" crossover of characters nobody knew or cared about: Death Metal vs. GenetiX, from Marvel UK, 1993.



That's quite the...um, codpiece he's sporting there!
