I've been world building this giant universe since I was in middle school and had the first brilliant idea when I folded a couch pillow over my upper arm.  That sparked my first grand creation, a superhero for all time...

 

But this applies to something else.  Last year, I wondered how I could tie in all the various universes and worlds I've written or drawn or just thought up while going about my day randomly, and it came to me...

 

Of course, I won't share my perfect connector.  But it involves a battle royale.  The kind that is filled with massive set pieces, snappy dialogue, fourth wall breaking, absurdist humor, a stereotypical Hollywood action star, and the greatest embodiment of a continuity guardian ever thought of (except for probably the one in The Flaming Carrot comics if they have one, don't remember.)

 

Unfortunately, I suck at drawing, but I hope to make this a reality some day.

That sounds pretty cool! I have to ask, what about the couch pillow gave you an idea?

 

Have you ever read the Pendragon series? That's a decent way to tie a bunch of different worlds into one, it involves a boy travelling through space and time to stop a demon from taking over the universe. He visits a bunch of different worlds with different concepts.

 

It's way better than I make it sound, it was one of my favourite book series in high school, haha.

Arguably, one of the characters in my idea is probably that idea sort of.  Except he's not a boy, he's the living embodiment of an intangible, and he duel wields infinite glocks.  And the being he fights isn't probably technically a demon but his underlings pretty much are.

Kingdom Hearts: The Novel?

Seems to be more Time Squad with demons and fantasy elements.

Kind of! Kingdom Hearts has nothing on this though, I think these books pull it off way better.
