Comic Crossovers and Simpsons Salutes

Have your news capacitors burnt out? Looking for a little cloud of nonsense to float away on before the obsessive gene kicks in again and you start squirrelling away your time on facts, facts, facts?

Well then, let your eyeballs rest on these comic crossovers from the Whoniverse:

Doctor Vs Doctor

Okay, so this isn’t the long awaited punch-up between McCoy and Baker, rather it’s everyone’s favourite Time Lord facing up to Latveria’s finest, Doctor Victor Von Doom!

For anyone not versed in Doomology, Marvel’s Supervillian, created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1962, first appeared in Fantastic Four #5- a genius inventor and a dabbler in the black arts, Von Doom has crossed over many titles and fought various superheroes (including making a slave of The Incredible Hulk ) on his quest for ultimate power.

So where does the Doctor fit in with Von Doom’s diabolical plans? Or is this yet another one of Victor’s robot doubles fooling the universes sharpest mind?

Only your imagination can tell…

The artwork was a commission piece by Evan “Doc” Shaner.

WHOsdays to Remember

Doctor Who vs The SimpsonsAs featured previously on Kasterborous, Springfield Punx artist Dean Fraser has been slowly rendering the Doctor and friends in the familiar yellow pallor and large overbites of The Simpson’s denizens. Concluding his ‘WHOsday’ series (a new Doctor Who character every Tuesday until the end of the previous year) Fraser has now added the two characters that brought the series kicking and screaming into the noughties – the Ninth Doctor and Rose Tyler (who’s post also includes some bonus designs from the Christmas 2010 special, featuring the Eleventh Doctor in his Hollywood 1950′s white suit).

The likenesses are great, as usual, and complete a sterling (if not copyright taunting) set of designs – I doff my lucky red fez to him.

About the Author


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    e’s’e done Hartnell, Eccleston, Tennant and Smith and has plans to do Tom Baker eventually. Really hope he gets into the rest of the incarnations as well. I’d love to see an Eleven Doctors picture by him.

    There was a amateur attempt but didn’t have his flair for the Simpson caricature. He’s magnificent.

    The Doctor facing the villains of the Marvel Universe would be a dream come true to me. My two favorite obsessions coming together. A dream come true would be The Doctor and Hank Pym vs. an Ultron-led army of Cybermen. Actually, there’s a lot of dreams come true putting him in the Marvel Universe.

    Thank you, you’ve caused me to get fanboy tingles all over.
