Doctor Who – Star Trek crossover closer to reality?


Not since the photo of the Doctor Who/Wizard of Oz mash-up with the somebody dropped a TARDIS on my sister graphic has ‘crossover’ talk hit an all-time high in the world of geek. Before a flood of comments come my way, I’m using the ‘geek’ as a good thing and in the most complimentary of ways.

Thanks to the the great folks over at Bleeding Cool looks like May is a month that needs to be marked on the calendar for the long-rumored possibility of a Doctor Who, Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover comic. As we all know, the 2012 Gallifrey One Network 23 Convention begins tomorrow in LA (17-19 February, to be exact). However, what’s fueling the rumor mill is the fact that Denton Tipton from IDW Publishing will be in attendance at the convention.

The rampant speculation is that IDW will, in May, publish a Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover series of comics. As Bleeding Cool reports, the art above featuring the Doctor, Rory and Amy on the bridge of the Enterprise is, quite possibly, the cover that will be used in the series. This would be way cool.

Now….if we can just get Doctor Who and Sherlock together…..
