Treasury Poll: Best Treasury That Never Was

Thanks to everyone who voted in the first-ever poll!

While all five fantasy crossovers started off pretty much even in the beginning, eventually the dream match-up of The Justice Society and The Invaders--written by Roy Thomas and drawn by Jerry Ordway--ran away with it and never looked back.

Considering how much I love(d) Thomas' All-Star Squadron as a kid, it sort of tickles me that this idea won so easily. I would have killed to see a book like this, especially in a classic, giant treasury-sized edition.

This whole silly idea got started between me and a friend of mine on Facebook, and we came up with at least another dozen ideas for DC/Marvel crossovers. So who knows? Maybe I'll go back and find some more, do another poll, and then we'll have some sort of bracket thing where both winners face off.

Thanks everyone!

Treasury Comics Poll!

Based on a discussion I had last night on Facebook, today I'm launching the first ever Treasury Comics Poll!

The discussion had was this: what if DC and Marvel had kept doing their treasury-sized team-ups after 1981's second Superman & Spider-Man book? What characters might have been paired up, and who might have drawn the book?

My friends and I came up with about twenty or so combinations, some obvious and some ridiculously unlikely. So I picked what I thought were the five "best" of that group and included them in the poll. The choices are:

Batman and Daredevil (drawn by Gene Colan)
Fantastic Four and The Challengers of the Unknown (drawn by Jack Kirby)
Justice Society and The Invaders (written by Roy Thomas and drawn by Jerry Ordway)
Wonder Woman and Thor (written and drawn by Walt Simonson)
Dr. Strange and Dr. Fate (drawn by Michael Golden)

You can make multiple votes, and if you have your own idea of a Treasury That Could Have Been, leave it in the comments!
