Cute, but there needs to be more than just a cover. C'mon, at least an inside panel or two...

Sort of interesting but I'd rather see Jack Chick's My Little Pony.

maybe this will tide you over, lekvar.

Artw -- I kid you not. This really makes my day.

My Little Pony gathers weirdness into its orbit like Saturn gathers moons. Did you celebrate Derpy Day?

Could I see one of these for The Smurfs, please?

KingEdRa, this close enough?

These are great. There's a whole series of these at Comics Alliance. The Justice Luchas of America is hilarious. The Christmas and Hannuka ones are a hoot.

But this one. I have no words.

The thread title is, of course, shamelessly stolen from a tweet Chris Sim. Made a while back. Sims (WHO LOVES METAFILTER) appears to be even more obsessed with MLP than we are.

WOW - League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1988.

I would forgo a week of lunch to buy that.

Check out The Handbook of GCTNH; scroll down; "Dial H for H.O.V.A" That is all.

And I love Chris Sims.

Also in the My Little Pony parody universe: My Little Pony by Michael Bay

That is so cool. And what makes it funnier is this would not have been out of line at all for late Kirby, when he was taking a half dozen assignments at a time and Cosmifying whatever the editors at Marvel had left over on their desks. An adaption of the movie 2001 that doesn't use any of the characters from the movie? Sure, why not. A series about a bright red dinosaur and his simpleton homo sapien sidekick? Rock on, baby. Jack Kirby's My Little Pony? Totally possible.

Thomas Scioli also draws the awesomely Kirby-like Gødland, written by Joe Casey. It's Kirby dots from Panel 1!

Not at all out of the realm of possibility, given the existence of this. Also, WRT the other covers, I have no use for Ted Nugent in any form, but I would dearly love to see Batman and Motörhead team up.

I think that might be a photoshop, Halloween Jack. But given the existence of characters like Goody Rickels, it's impossible to say for certain.

I don't even read comics any more but I love Chris Sims almost as much as Chris Sims loves Batman. The Smallville recaps are a hoot.

It's the real thing, Kevin. Kirby was employed by Ruby-Spears in the 80s in what was essentially a sinecure--he worked up concepts for Ruby-Spears that he was paid for whether they were used or not. Here's a previous Artw Kirby post that showed some of the more polished (i.e. inked and colored) efforts. The Mr. T thing was along those lines.
