Top 10 Marvel Vs DC Battles (That Didn’t Happen in 1996)

Batman vs Daredevil. Spider-Man vs Nightwing. Superman vs Ego The Living Planet. These are the battles we sat around dreaming of in 1996. When Marvel and DC had their landmark, monumental crossover, there were still so many fantasy matchups left on the table. Here are 10 of them, presented by the What If Podcast.

Over The Top Tales is available for purchase at IndyPlanet.com/front/product/126499/

99 Cents for Digital Download

Late last year I worked on a comic book, “Over The Top Tales”, which is a pair of stories set in World War I. A full length, black and white comic, “Over The Top Tales” features:

The Beacon –  A young black man from the United States’ 24th Infantry Regiment as he is thrust into action on the front lines of WWI, even before the U.S.’ official involvement! Will Tyler Durham die for a country that won’t even acknowledge his existence in combat?

Into The Mud – Another young soldier who sinks deep beneath the surface of the Ypres Salient in 1917. What emerges will horrify both you and him!

If you’re interested in WWI, horror comics, or black and white comics, give it a look here!

Stan Lee signed my book!!!

The first comic I ever owned was a ragged reprint of Amazing Spider-Man #45 (I wrote about it here). Eventually, as I became an adult, I “closed the loop” and got an original ASM #45 to look good alongside his more modest brother. When I saw that Stan Lee was going to be at the Boston Comic Con this year, I knew exactly what book I was going to get signed. After a brief wait in line (it really wasn’t bad, and I knew I was around appreciative comic book fans) I got up to the table. While Stan’s eyes were down on the table most of the time (part and parcel with keeping such a line moving at such a brisk pace), for a second he looked up after he signed my book (I also think he gave a slight indication that he doesn’t see this particular issue all the time). He smiled a polite smile as I briefly said that he was an inspiration and thanked him. All that waiting and money for about a second of interaction and I was not disappointed. Thanks, Stan.

What If Returns!

I’m pretty excited about this. As the purveyor of all things related to Marvel’s What If? series, including the What If Podcast, I was excited to see that Marvel is bringing back What If in a series of one shots taking on the “Infinity” event.

While I long for the days of more random What If’s not exclusively tied to a mega-crossover from a few years ago (see What If Avx, Age of Ultron), I am glad the legacy lives on.
