Great Comics That Never Happened #19: Batman and Alex Trebek in FINAL JEOPARDY!
In our recurring feature, ComicsAlliance writer Chris Sims and a rotating cast of talented artists imagine a finer world to bring you a look at the Best Comics Ever that Did Not, Will Not, and occasionally Can Not Happen! This week, Dr. McNinja creator Christopher Hastings, colorist Carly Monardo and guest plotter Dr. K join us for the most intellectual team-up of all!
Check out the larger version and the “solicitation” for this unpublished classic after the jump!
The Brave and the Bold #217 (January 2001)
Story: Dr. K and Chris SIms
Art: Christopher Hastings and Carly Monardo
Locked up in Arkham Asylum since his last devious caper, the Riddler has had nothing to do but plot revenge… and watch America’s favorite quiz show, Jeopardy! His rage has only built as he has seen his intellectual inferiors rack up the cash totals that he’s never been able to score with his life of crime, and now that he’s free, he’s going to settle the score with the television institution. Unless a contestant can rack up never-before-seen perfect score of $566,400 in a special live broadcast, a group of hidden bombs will destroy Gotham City!
The only thing that can stand in the way of complete destruction is the most off-beat team-up of all: The razor-sharp intellect of Batman and the unflappable Canadian game-show hosting skills of TV’s Alex Trebek! Will a few well-chosen categories be enough to save the day, or will Trebek and Batman be facing… Final Jeopardy!?
