    Try and pick up Tarzan Alive and Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life by Philip José Farmer, Myths For The Modern Age by Win Scott Eckert and the League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen comics (never the film). There is also a French book from a few years back, though that deals with characters from French literature. (ooh, I tied in this post to the Bastille Day one – that’s neat!)

    Television does this a lot. No wait… A LOT… yeah, that’s better. Wikipedia has a bit up about the television stuff, though they miss out all the crossovers from Diagnosis: Murder and other second-string shows. Poobala is much, much better at the linking index.

    I’m just glad I don’t have to do the research on this one…
