Archie to Meet Jem, Judge Dredd, More…But Only in Cover Art Form




Yes, although Archie’s creative teams are fearless about having him cross paths with any other character under the sun, these are all just hypothetical stories for now, as depicted on a series of IDW tribute covers celebrating his 75th anniversary.

BACK TO THE FUTURE #3 by Fernando Ruiz
EMPIRE: UPRISING #7 by Barry Kitson
JEM & THE HOLOGRAMS #10 by Tania del Rio
JUDGE DREDD: MEGA-CITY ZERO #1 by Francesco Francavilla
STAR TREK #52 by Dan Parent
TRANSFORMERS #48 by Andrew Pepoy
THE X-FILES: SEASON 11 #5 by Robert Hack

Funny thing is these covers are still looking more faithful to source than the actual Jem and Transformers movies. Hasbro licensing could learn a thing or two about giving a shit even when you’re shameless about cross-promotion.
