NBC put Community on midseason hiatus last winter, so Greendale diehards launched save-the-show efforts like ridiculously great fan art, hilariously heartfelt video pleas, and even an organized protest outside Rockefeller Center. Those passionate fans won out and Community returns to NBC tonight (and airs in repeats on Comedy Central soon!), so let's look at the best fan art mashups by the show's most talented and obsessed fans.
Community & World War II propaganda
Plenty of Community
fan art from the #sixseasonsandamovie
campaign got straight to the point, like these 1940s propaganda posters slash stealth suggestions for the Season 4 Halloween episode. Uncle Sam Jeff Winger sums up the modern American male too perfectly for it not to happen this October on our screens.
Community & The Avengers
I bet Chevy Chase never imagined he'd be drawn as the Hulk. Cartoonist Chris Schweizer
did, so here's an amazing cartoon of the cast as Marvel's mighty superhero team. Of course even when Pierce is "hulked up", we still can't get away from his man-boobs. It's endearing.
Community & Peanuts
Maybe the most perfect mashup of them all: another famous set of classmates, adorable art, and they even referenced the Dean's weird dalmatian fixation
. It's not the greatest TV Peanuts reference of all time
but it's close.
Community & Star WarsCommunity
fanatic and graphic illustrator Jon Defreest
celebrated the show's official return date with a mashup of exactly the right (if not greatest)
original Star Wars
movie's poster with the show. Besides being generally realistic and kickass, who couldn't love a smug Pierce Death Vader?
Community & Raiders Of The Lost Ark
Another sweet George Lucas-related mashup
of a great show, and nothing says "community college" like machetes and khaki explorer pants. Also it makes a lot of sense that this one features Annie's Boobs
Community & Batman
Community & Batman villains
Community & Gotham City PD
When we last saw the show, the gang was stuck in the "darkest, most terrible timeline," as explained by Evil Abed in the Remedial Chaos Theory episode
. Artist Kinjamin
put the show's possible fates into a Batman villains
a Batman Family
mashup, and then went ahead and made all your favorite supporting characters into Gotham City's police force
