What will happen when the most powerful weapon in the universe goes up against the strongest one there is?! I'm not too sure myself but I do know it won't pretty and I know we are in for one heck of a show! As the frog said, "It ain't easy being green". Find out how it all goes down when the Green Goliath meets the Green Gladiator in the Super-Team Family crossover to end all crossovers... Green Lantern vs. The Hulk!!!
...Now that is a comic I want to read.
Unfortunately this little beauty has never seen the printed page and probably never will because the striking cover above is the brainchild of the very talented artist and comic fan, Ross Pearsall. Ross publishes a blog called Super-Team Family ...The Lost Issues where he takes that well-known collision of Photoshop and geek culture to a whole new level. To put it bluntly, the man has "mad skills".
Originally inspired by superhero team-ups in DC Comics' The Brave And The Bold and in Marvel Two-In-One, Ross's unbridled imagination brings together some of the greatest and most unlikely pairings in comic books and beyond, the likes of which you have never seen before. Literally. For, as the name suggests, these are The Lost Issues. The team-ups that could have been, or should have been, or in some cases definitely SHOULDN'T have been. Ross creates covers for stories that the fans want to see but for reasons, legal or otherwise, have never happened in the real world of comics publishing.
You're damn right I want to see Hal Jordan go up against The Hulk! And I've never wanted anything more than I want to know what happened when Guy 'my way or the highway' Gardner met Cliff 'I make this rocket look good' Secord. The cosmic battle between the Kree's Captain Mar-vell and the Green Lantern Corps is a story that could make a whole event in itself.
I've picked out some of my favourite Green Lantern covers from the Super-Team Family collection for this feature but you really owe it to yourself to take a look at the blog in it's entirety. Ross has been creating these mash-up covers since 2011 and has been publishing a new image every single day for the last two years! There are literally thousands of covers to peruse and there is something to catch the eye of fans of all types. Comic books, sci-fi and fantasy, cartoons, even TV and box-office films all get the magic Lost Issues treatment.
I absolutely love those covers. In fact, I'm starting to imagine what those stories could've been like if they had ever been published by DC & Marvel.ReplyDelete
They are perfect, aren't they. The Rocketeer would definitely be due a power ring if DC ever do a crossover with IDW.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing :)
