10 Weirdest Comic Crossovers Of All Time

Providing the KFC/DC crossover we never knew we needed.

Much like any kind of comic, crossovers are created for a whole host of reasons. Between being original, being creative, and sometimes just being plain weird, creative teams have a peculiar habit of making the weirdest content they can – sometimes solely because they can.

The one difference between regular comics and crossovers, however, is that weird crossovers can get so much stranger, so much faster. All you have to do is say a phrase like ‘The Punisher Meets Archie’, and a subconscious part of your brain immediately begins screaming in sheer disbelief.

In this case, comics publishers far and wide have engaged with their fair share of wacky crossovers, to the point where they've collaborated with TV shows, films, and even fast-food chains to varying degrees of success.

It’s a blessing and a curse. On one hand, it’s impossible to not be interested in seeing something like Attack on Titan feature in a superhero comic. On the other, it’s also impossible to not be more than a little weirded out, either because the two franchises really don’t work together, or because they do when they really shouldn’t. Either way, you’re left with a comic you can never forget – much as you may try to.

10. Lobo/Roadrunner

DC Comics/Looney Tunes

Of the DC/Looney Tunes crossovers, Lobo and Roadrunner is by the most bizarre. Sure, they both kind of have murderous tendencies, and have some nefarious schemes, but that’s about as far as the comparison can go – and boy, do they have a lot more differences.

While it’s weird enough having a cartoon duo starring alongside a brutal alien assassin, the art style is actually more in line with the line-heavy style usually found in Lobo, which makes the arrival of Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote even more bizarre.

It’s almost a wise move though, because seeing Lobo with the Looney Tunes is nowhere near as weird as seeing a super buff furry coyote.

Is seeing Wile E. hire Lobo to kill his arch-nemesis both nostalgic and kind of clever? Against every expectation, the answer is yes.


I like my comics like I like my coffee - in huge, unquestionably unhealthy doses.
