I mean, I'm more about my personal original works but there are a few IPs I'd love to work one.
First I actually already have permission for, it's time that's an issue! My favorite series of novels, the Volstovic Cycle by Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett. It has steampunk, magic, dragons, and LGBT characters so I'm all about that.
Second just occurred to me yesterday, but a comic reboot of the Pirates of Darkwater would be really awesome, I think.
I tend to do it all so I'm not sure about dream team.

Well there is one fiction work I'd love to steal the characters from and bring to a modern or even sci-fi setting but I won't name it because there is a thin line between influence and and plagiarism now isn't there?
I would love to see a non-fiction graphic novel that shows exactly how the perfect storm came together and how the Andrea Gail likely went down. I'd love to see the technical details of the storms forming and merging together mixed with a graphic representation of the boat's systems failing, interspersed with the stories of the crewmen and what they did and likely thought as things fell apart. The book by Sebatian Junger is amazing, the movie not so much, but to have a lot of the technical weather and ship building information shown rather than described as it was in the book would be pretty helpful for novices to see and the stories of the crew of course make it heart wrenching and relatable.

I would love to work with John Wick Universe, Dragon Age, or Horizon Zero Dawn. But honestly, I'd rather work on my own IP.
As for team, I would love to work with Selina Espiritu one day. Her work blows me away, and I've been following her for a while. Aside from that, I'm still learning who's-who, and also believe different teams would work best on different projects.
I would kill to reboot Inhumanoids, a failed television show/toy line from the Eighties. There was an uncompleted miniseries back in the Eighties and Tom Fowler and Art Adams worked extensively on a comics reboot called Primordia that never got off the ground, but I'd like to do it proper.

I would love to write and draw official Hey Arnold! stories be it in comic or TV special/episode with Craig Bartlett. I'm really hoping that after the Jungle Movie-- Nickelodeon will hand over comic licenses to a company like Boom! or IDW or Oni Press to publish comics.
Aside from that, I would love to be apart of a Spiderman project or a major Disney production.
I'm an animator at heart so I think if I could do anything, it would be a beautiful short film with a small team of cool people! This is just a small trailer but something like the Kairos trailer would be amazing. Saying that, Kairos is also a VERY good comic with really nice colours and style!!

This is a great question!
I like to challenge myself, so I'd want to do something unexpected.
I've been reading a lot of non-fiction the last couple of years, and I really love the idea of translating some of these thick tomes into comics. My number one choice would be Godel, Escher, Bach by Douglas Hofstadter. It's an intriguing read about the nature of the universe. It features comedic vignettes between the big chapters that star Achilles and a Tortoise (and sometimes a crab). I must confess, as I read them they turned into comics in my mind.
On the fiction side, I could see adapting anything by Borges or Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson.
One thing I would like to get to one day (since it's in the public domain) is The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser. However, it is also impossibly long. In my free time, I'm working on a modern language edition for fun.
Finally, just to get my geek card punched, I would love to work on a reboot of my favorite 80s cartoon, The Bionic Six.
I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else is excited about.
I would LOVE to work on either a Wishbone series or a Ghostwriter series of some sort. They were two big parts of my childhood that I'll never forget.
Wishbone would make an AMAZING comic for MG readers! (also I bet it would be a super amazing animated show too)
Wishbone would be a great kids' comic.
Ghostwriter is funny because the whole thing seemed to be how can we do fantasy on a PBS budget, since the ghost was always invisible. It would be interesting to see how the "infinite sfx budget" of comics could expand the narrative.
