The Bartkira project is most definitely one of the coolest comic book projects, very much like the Star Wars Uncut (check it!) of comics.

Bartkira is a project initiated/edited by James Harvey that mixes The Simpsons with the original Japanese manga series Akira by Ōtomo Katsuhiro. What is most interesting about Bartkira is that it is open to everybody that is up to the task of collectively redraw the entirety of Akira, in each artist’s own style. Just look up the tag bartkira on Tumblr and you can see many more submissions by contributing artists! Awesome awesome awesome I can’t wait to see the final product!
