    Default Will One Piece beat Batman?

    Looks like the manga one piece may pass batman in worldwide sales this year! (keep in mind as other forums have pointed out they are counting the monthy batman books but not shonen jump monthy were one piece is shown. If it counted shonen jump's japan sales one piece could have beat batman aready!)

    This shows just how big manga can get. What do you guys think of this? Maybe dc could do a batman one piece crossover! (hey they teamed up with goku in the games!)

    Should dc look at this? Will one piece not catch up with batman? What do you guys think?

    a crossover would be hilariously absurd and I would go broke for that story!! the world of One Piece is so insane Batman would be completely out of his depth but also the possibility of a Devil Fruit and/or Haki powered Batman is just too awesome to pass up.

    it would never happen tho.

    What s really insane is only took One Piece a little over 20 years to get close to what Batman has sold in 80. The last numbers I saw had Batman at 474 million sold and One Piece as 454 million so I think it is not a matter is if One Piece will pass Batman at this point it is a matter of when.

    While I don't see it happening, why on earth is this ew? Batman's had crossovers with Scooby Doo, Predator, Aliens, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I think maybe even Robocop and/or Terminator if my memory's not too fuzzy. Or is this just an "I hate anime" thing?

    Edit: And I forgot to mention the crossovers with public domain characters like Sherlock Holmes and Dracula. Hell hasn't there been Elseworlds where he's dealt with real world historical people like Houdini and Jack the Ripper?

    If DC ever did a crossover with a manga series, I imagine their first choice would be Dragon Ball for obvious reasons. Also most mangas don't crossover with other manga series so a cultural crossover between East and West seems even more unlikely.

    One Piece deserves it. It's been the most consistantly amazing comic reading experience of the last twenty years. Oda is a genius.

    Barring series the author has previously worked on, pretty much.

    Anime... Both One Piece and Dragon Ball have actually had TWO crossovers (one of which also included Toriko).

    DC has done Manga for their properties before. Not to mention Batman: Ninja.

    Hell yeah! My favourite manga except for berserk. It's world building is fantastic. It deserves it.i just hope i live long enough read its ending and know what the heck is one piece.
    For people who haven't read it. I highly recommend it. Here's why.

    The amount of named characters in the manga is insane and amout development they get. My favourite characters is not even in the main universe cast(except for sanji) . I just hope oda keeps healthy and finishes it.

    Video about this I found on youtube. (talks about manga vs American comics later also some curse words in the video near the end so heads up)
