Prepare for a geek overload with these Draw2d2 crossover illustrations. Artists from around the globe have descended upon the popular website to create this series of Star Wars vs. Batman hybrids and the results are as imaginative as they are well executed.

Draw2d2 is an art blog which invites illustrators of all skill levels to participate in a bi-monthly contest in which they must fuse two geek references into an entirely new nerd universe. Simply look through this gallery to see some of the wondrous creations this website has already gotten out of truly inspired artists.

Some noteworthy crossovers on the Draw2d2 website include Ghostbusters vs. Futurama, Goonies vs. Neverland and Planet of the Apes vs. Terminator.

Implications - There has been a recent insurgence in crossover material because it's a simplistic way to satiate consumer demand for new, but familiar products. Corporations may similarly consider collaborating with other high-profile companies in order to generate mass consumer interest in the public sphere.
