The Ultimate Crosssover: Crisis on Infinite Earths

In an effort to explain why some of their co-existing characters had been around for decades while others were brand-new, DC Comics editors and writers created the concept of the DC Multiverse, in which it was revealed that the original DC characters from the 1940s lived on a parallel Earth, separated by a different vibrational […]

X-Men vs. Avengers vs. Bear

Long before the mega-event Avengers vs. X-Men would usher in the age of Marvel Now, the two most iconic teams of the Marvel U went head to head in a similarly titled series: The X-Men vs. The Avengers. This crossover series was published in 1986, and written by Roger Stern with art by Marc Silvestri […]

Crossing Over

The year was 1984. Li’l Scott was about to embark on a marathon six-week-long cross-country family vacation. Six weeks living in the back seat of a 1972 Chevy Impala. Clearly, a large stack of new comic books was called for. These being the days before comic-book shops (at least in my neck of the woods), […]

Bats Meets Cap

Unstoppable Force, Meet Immovable Object

I’ve always loved John Byrne’s work, as long as I can remember. Even when I was little and not paying much attention to creator names, it was his issues of MARVEL TEAM-UP that were always my favorites. Through his epic run on FANTASTIC FOUR, and then SUPERMAN, back to Marvel for books like SHE-HULK and […]

The Blastoff Art Gallery – Barbara and Gwen

A new month means a new theme here at Blastoff and a new banner from our Artist-in-Residence Elena Casagrande, who celebrates Crossover Month with a crossover we haven’t seen yet, but we certainly would love to: the Batgirl of Burnside and Spider-Gwen. Click to see the image at full size.

Crossing Over

It’s time to take a look back at what I still think is probably the single best of the inter-company crossover books, 1982’s MARVEL AND DC PRESENT THE UNCANNY X-MEN AND THE NEW TEEN TITANS.   Published as a single 64-page issue, X-MEN/TITANS captured both teams at the height of their popularity, and with what […]
