Webcomic of the Week – Alien Vs. Pooh

Over the years, there have been a lot of great, legendary crossovers.  Batman and Spider-Man.  Batman and Hellboy.  Batman and Scooby-Doo.  But for once a great crossover does not necessarily have to include Batman.  Over at GODXILIARY the individual known only as “Giant Hamburger” has pieced together a nice little story taking your favorite horrific aliens from Aliens and putting them in the Hundred-Acre Wood.  Now its site of origin is a bit… hectic.  Bizarre.  A little difficult to comprehend.  But they’ve got some… let’s say interesting content.  This anti-children’s story being an obvious example of that.

Crossovers are nothing new with Aliens.  Did you know they once crossed over with Batman?  Are you at all surprised I pointed this out?  Anyway, Winnie the Pooh and his friends wind up having to contend with the terror of a cluster of alien egg sacks they discover.  When Pooh Bear gets struck by a face-hugger, things wind up going from bad to worse.  Pooh and friends begin suffering from the chaos brought by these invading monsters and there is nothing for them but pain and death until they begin fighting back.  It is done amazingly as both a childish romp with innocent characters and a twisted study into how things can be corrupted.  But at base level?  It’s just pretty damn weird.

That’s not at all to say it’s bad.  It’s quite good, in fact.  The art, seemingly done with colored pencils/crayons/who knows fits perfectly with the type of story being told.  As you flip the pages you begin experiencing more and more eerie subject matter, with the lives of the characters being turned upside-down due to their new alien invaders.  However, in true Winnie the Pooh fashion, they all treat the massacre as a minor bother and for the most part just begin immediately coping with their new predicament.  This works perfectly for both writing the characters in a familiar way and contributing to the rather awkward and creepy feeling the story aims for as a whole.  I’d definitely recommend taking a look at this story, because not only is it fascinating to see how it works, but it’s also a very skillful combination of two wildly different stories.  Give it a look.
