When war-hero-turned-handyman Kesuke Miyagi is found drained of blood, it becomes clear that the occult gang known as the Lost Boys are targeting the only individuals that can stop them from complete domination of America. It's the perfect case for the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen--except that their government contact, Oscar Goldman, disbanded the team in 1979 after they defeated Mr. Han's army of the living dead.
Now, disgraced scientist Emmet Brown has to put together a new team to combat the growing threat of the Lost Boys and their leader, a newly resurrected vampire kingpin Tony Montana: Transportation specialist Jack Burton, ex-commando B.A. Baracus, tech wizard Angus MacGyver and the mysteriously powerful femme fatale known only as "Lisa." But will Brown be able to stop the Lost Boys before time runs out?

I'm not really sure how much money I'd pay to see this actually happen, but if you round it to the nearest thousand dollars, I think the figure would be somewhere along "all of it".
I love this more than anything, ever.
This is very clever.
I stand by my statement to a friend, any LOEG comic from '88 that doesn't have Buckaroo Banzai is lacking.
Obviously he would show up to save their asses several issues in.
What about the 90's one, where The Dude, Vincent Vega, Slingblade Karl, Jay & Silent Bob and Mathilda from the Professional team up to stop Keyser Soze from taking over the Seattle music scene?
Slingblade or Forrest Gump?
Forrest Gump turns out to have been Slingblade's crime-fighting mentor. There's a whole flashback issue.
Of course! Obvious in hindsight.
I'm pretty sure that book ends when they meet Austin Powers and some kind of singularity forms.
Filed under "too awesome to ever actually come to pass" ;-)
Just like ThinkGeek, I'm beginning to really hate comic book april fool's jokes -- because they are all too often things I really would want to see.
Yes, it's a sad state of affairs when the April Fools joke actually looks like a really fun read.
I want to play the NES tie-in game of this.
Well, maybe by 2200 or so, copyright will have expired on those characters.
MacGyver and Brown in the same place? Very yes.
OK, I'm clearly being dumb here, but who is Lisa?
The created woman from the movie "Weird Science", I'd guess.
Weird Science is a much better movie if you watch it with the understanding that Lisa is Tyler Durden.
Same with Ferris in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
I feel it really should have been Sarah Connor.
Sarah Connor was helpless until Terminator 2 (1991).
I thought it was the woman from Flashdance.
Which made more sense to me.
I thought that to!
I assumed she's a reference to Patrick Nagel
It would be a heck of a lot better than LXG: Black Dossier, that's for sure.
