Off My Mind: Combining Comic Book Genres

Let's see more crossovers with genres within superhero comics.

People tend to think of superheroes when it comes to comic books. We all know that there are many different types of comics that don't have any superheroes or tights in them. On occasion we'll see a mix of the different genres of comics. Marvel Zombies managed to combine zombies with the Marvel characters. While you could say this has been successful, you can't really take it seriously because of the joking nature. It wasn't until the recent Curse of the Mutants one-shot, Smoke and Blood that I really started thinking about the crossing of genres. 

Since we've seen the occasional mixing of genres in the past, what would you like to see? Do you want to see more true horror in comics? Do you want to see more alien invasions mixed with superheroes? Do you just want superhero comics to focus on superheroes?
