A bunch of high-profile characters get together for a Big Damned Adventure. Hilarity ensues. Money is raised for charity.
This sprawling comedy epic included many major comic figures, but is notable for the overall "flatness" of its humor.
For Doctor Who fans:
One interesting aspect is its two-page Dan Dare/Doctor Who crossover, featuring the Doctor(s) and Dare against The Mekon. This may be regarded as partial homage to the fact that this Dan Dare enemy was the partial inspiration for the Doctor Who baddie, Davros,
Both page 1 and page 2 of this crossover are available for viewing on the internet.
