This post also includes one of my favourite comics panels ever, drawn by Francis Manapul. WHY was he the first peciller whose name I knew? LEARN! SEE! WONDER!

I just managed to get those scans done. The quality is weird and I don't know why. Better late and dodgy than never??
One thing I didn't notice at the time but find wanting in hindsight, is that whilst I was reading Witchblade in.. 2002-2003?.. and in the live-action television show as well, Sara doesnt really have that much in the way of female support characters. Her flake sister shows up sometimes, and there was that daughter of her dead best friend, and every now and then Lara Croft would drop by.. but the day to day, comic to comic stuff was pretty dudefilled.
So it was always nice when another lady did come and visit - such as here. I picked these scans in particular because it's also always neat to see some evidence of in-world "rules" when you're dealing with supernatural jiggery pokery.
I'm not that fond of the way Top Cow chose to advertise it, but maybe you are.

Blackruzsa wanted to see some WItchblade/Tomb Raider crossover comic, so here IS some WItchblade/Tomb Raider crossover comic.
It's not that good, but it exists.
I'm gonna go ahead and say that if you're not feeling much like looking at ladies drawn.. well drawn by Michael Turner, OK? Every breast a shining almost-sphere, every leg a stilt, every lip a glossy marshmallow. Everything straining and presented. If you don't feel like that, click past this post, yeah?

For those of you who haven't been around for previous discussions, "The Ninety-Nine" is a concept created by Naif al-Mutawa, in an effort to let kids from Muslim-majority countries have superhero comics they could read with at least some cultural approval. Each of the teenagers in the 99 gets their powers from bonding with a "Noor stone" which contains a fragment of the knowledge and wisdom of the ancient Middle East. Their code names come from the 99 names of Allah, minus the bit that makes them a god's name. As part of the themes of the series, while individual members are fairly powerful on their own, they are much more powerful if they link up in threes or more to combine their abilities.
Wonder Woman's costume seems to be the "alternate universe" one solely to allow this comic to be reprinted in countries where her swimsuit outfit would be too controversial; the JLA depicted seems to be one we've never seen together before.
( In the tradition of crossovers, multiple crises around the world. )

The Great Fables Crossover! (sorry Vertigo fans, not that one)
In 1988, Denny O'Neil set off to tell a great martial arts epic, and close the book on the O-Sensei, the old master introduced in Kung-Fu Fighter, responsible for teaching Richard Dragon, Bronze Tiger and Lady Shiva. While I prolly should've held this one off until after I'd posted the arc from Question v1 16-18, where Vic and Ollie first met, well, who's fault was it starting Martial Arts Week now?
But though this crossover takes place in titles starring Batman, Green Arrow and The Question,
All of you probably recognize Warren's EMPOWERED---in the latest "chapter" of the webcomic THE CROSSOVERLORD, we pay homage to one of the most famous comic covers at all--- while cameoing a zillion webcomic superhero-oriented characters, and several non-webcomic superheroic charactes to boot! The crib sheet will be out later tomorrow---but we invite you to see how many characters you can identify. All of these were used with the permission of the creators. Check it out at http://www.drunkduck.com/Crossoverlord/
Note I'm not sure how to tag this since I'm not familiar with some of the characters or what comics they are from. So I'm going to do my best and hope the tag wrangles don't forsake me.
