Since you're reading this on the Internet, I'm going to go ahead and assume that there's a significant chance you've wondered what Star Trek would be like if the Enterprise was crewed by Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle instead of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock. Well wonder no longer, friends and neighbors! In this week's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #16, Heather Nuhfer and Amy Mebberson are answering your crossover queries once and for all.
Trapped in a storybook with the actual stories devoured by the magical Bookworm, the Ponies are forced to make up their own stories, and so naturally, they turn to recreating Star Trek and Lord of the Rings. Apparently fanfic is magic, too. Check 'em out below!
If catching Dredd cringe through traffic jams trapped in a civilian-grade car and dispatching perps with hilariously-nonlethal weaponry was your cup of tea in Judge Dredd: Mega-City Two #1 last month, you'll be pleased to know the ultimate comic book character culture-shock continues this week in issue #2 by writer Douglas Wolk, artist Ulises Farinas and colorist Ryan Hill. This time around Dredd's finally gotten his hands on a proper bike, but at the cost of going deep undercover to infiltrate some surprisingly talented biker gangs in the name of solid reality television. Oh, and justice?
One of the cool things about Adventure Time is that it lends itself really well to hopping in and out of different genres with every adventure. Sure, it's skewed pretty heavily towards dungeon-crawling action, but over the past few years, we've seen romances, crime stories, locked room mysteries, and even supernatural horror. And now, we're getting to see Finn and Jake plot a heist -- and since they're heisting a princess, why not recruit the Ice King as an expert advisor?
That's what's going down in the pages of Adventure Time: The Flip Side #2, from the team of Paul Tobin, Colleen Coover and Wook Jin Clark! Check out the first few pages, along with a whole dang bunch of variant covers, below!
If you thought Terry McGinnis heading to college in DC's digital-first Batman Beyond 2.0 series was going to be all energy drink-induced panic attacks during all-night term paper writing sessions and/or having a shway time chilling at the quad with the Justice League, you'll be pleased to know that from the beginning of the series all the way through this week's Chapter 13 written by Kyle Higgins with art by Thony Silas, Batman's been all about fighting futuristic bad guys. And we have a first look at the upcoming issue to prove it!
Following the immense critical and commercial success of his two volume epic Boxers and Saints, Gene Luen Yang announced his next project for First Second, The Shadow Hero. Written by Yang and illustrated by Sonny Liew, The Shadow Hero is an origin story for The Green Turtle, a golden age pulp hero who first appeared in 1944′s Blazing Comics #1.
Created by cartoonist Chu F. Hing, The Green Turtle was the first ever Asian-American superhero, and one of the first characters to have an Asian-American creator. The Shadow Hero will be a revival for the character, as he stars in new stories for the first time in decades.
But before its release, Yang and Liew created a preview for the book, first published in the pages of the Shattered Anthology, which Tor.com has just released in full color.
Created by Neil Gaiman in the pages of The Sandman, Edwin Paine and Charles Rowland, a.k.a. the Dead Boy Detectives, have appeared in various stories published by Vertigo since 1991.

Written by Toby Litt and Mark Buckingham, with art by Buckingham and Gary Erskine, Dead Boy Detectives follows the adventures of Edwin and Charles, two boys killed at the same boarding school, who remain on earth as ghosts to investigate various mysteries.
