Stephen King has inspired a lot of crazy stuff. The cultural references are. . . everywhere. Here's a unique one: Afterlife with Archie is doing a crossover series that will take the characters "to the grave and back."
Writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says, “Afterlife with Archie combines two of my great passions: Archie comics and horror comics. This series came out of conversations with Jon [Goldwater], asking questions like, ‘what if the Archie characters found themselves in a Stephen King novel like The Stand." (www.horrortalk.com)
Now, I've never read Archie. Ever. Didn't know he existed until he was mentioned in an episode of The Big Bang Theory. The article got me thinking, what kinds of crossovers would be fun?
Crossover isn't meeting Stephen King -- it's entering the world of Mr. King, or drawing elements from King's work. Carrie Underwood recently used Christine in a music video to take out an adulterous spouse. We've seen The Simpsons take a trip through The Shining.
Just for fun, what would be some cool cross overs? Tell me in the comments section.
- Sheldon from Big Bang Theory is put on the Graveyard shift to help clean out the rats in the sub-basement.
- Dwight from The Office goes on a blind date with Carrie's mom.
- A crazy clown terrorizes Middle Earth.
- The Smurf's adopt a dog. . .
- Ghost Busters are called to The Overlook Hotel (Thanks Chris)
