Welcome once again, to the major comics crossover event that made readers say, "...Wait, What?"

We're throwing comics at the wall here to see what sticks. (why yes, I have just finished a Portal 2 binge.)

Combining (broadly) the Doom Patrol and X-Force, two misfit bands of tragic mutants led by a rather unbalanced, near-sociopathic Futurist gets us...



Those misfits, misfits of science (ha)... )

14 1/3 pages behind the cut, 7 from X-Patrol #1 and 7 1/3 from Exciting X-Patrol #1.

Greetings True B- wait, that's some other guy's line.

Hello again, S_D!

Back in the Sunshine State from the Lone Star State, and despite the technical equality of those nicknames, they are not environmentally equivalent in reality (just check the weather).

In this edition of our trek through the crack-verse that was Amalgam Comics, we see what happens when you combine the devil-may-care bravado of Tony Stark with the devil-may-care bravado of Hal Jordan to get...



Has he lost his mind? Can he see or is he blind? )

7 1/3 pages from Iron Lantern #1 behind the cut.

Time once again for a dip into the amazing-ly crack-eriffic Amalgam Universe!

When last we left our Merry Metamutants, they were... well, not doing too well.

Sad to say, after a timeskip of unknown length, they aren't actually doing better, but in fact worse.



That's great/ it starts with an earthquake/ birds, snakes and airplanes/ (and Lenny Bruce is not afraid)... )

We last saw Mags admitting the android Magnetic Men were the closest thing to his family since the Brotherhood (given they are the Brotherhood dealing with brain-in-a-jar syndrome).

So, what's the best gift a proud poppa can give his new family? Top billing!



How not to be a helicopter parent, Step 1: Don't let your kids live on a helicopter... )

7 and 1/3 pages from the 24 page The Magnetic Men Featuring Magneto #1.

We return to the mixed-up crazy crack of the Amalgam Universe with one of the most requested titles from our last go around.

Combining the preachiness and messiah complex of Max/Erik "Magnus" Eisenhardt/Lensherr and the eccentric scheming of Dr. Will "Balls Crazy" Magnus gets you...



Magnetic Men... how do they work? )

7 and 1/3 pages from 23 page Magneto and the Magnetic Men #1.

For my final this installment, I'm coincidentally presenting the Amalgam one-shot I just recently purchased.

Mix the tragic background of Bruce Wayne with the experiences of Nick Fury and you get...

And as an additional post for today, the absolute LAMEST Amalgam single-issue special out of my entire collection. A real example of "Dear God, Why?" in comics publishing.

She's an immortal warrior princess. He's a haunted ex-special operative. They fight crime! Together they are...



Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun. )

Back again, with a double-up for missing an entry yesterday.

So, what do you get when you combine every thief/assassin character with every other thief/assassin character?

Last time, there was mention I'd be including the worst Amalgam issue. This is NOT that issue.

Instead, we combine the tragedy and horror of the transformation of Dr. Kirk Langstrom aka Man-Bat and the bizarre and magical ascension of the Man-Thing to get...

Tonight, on Amalgam Comics...*

The convoluted history of DC's scarlet speedster the Flash mixes with the convoluted origin of Marvel's spirit of vengeance Ghost Rider to give us:

To complement [personal profile] glprime's excellent Amalgam Comics entries, here's possibly the strangest book they put out, in terms of out-there combinations:



Generation Hex was an amalgamation of mutant teen team Generation X with Jonah Hex and various other DC Wild West characters.

Keeping up with the project while I've got some free time.

On this entry, I'm not even going to try and make sense of the story in truncated format, because that's nearly impossible; every PANEL is practically a scene change. Stuff moves incredibly fast, and virtually a third of the entire comic is dramatic entrances. Combining the pulp, daredevil heroics of the Challengers of the Unknown with the super-science and cosmic adventure of the Fantastic Four gives us...



(more like Challengers of the CRACK-tastic)

I encourage you to listen to this, as you read through.

They'll save with a mighty hand, every man, every woman, every child with a mighty flash! )

Sorry for the delay. On this very special edition of Marvel/DC mash-up, we have the two greatest magicians of their respective houses, Drs. Strange and Fate (and a little Charles Xavier via secret ID thrown in for good measure). Join us for this (slightly) crossover-plot relevant issue of...

Well, the 1 Year Anniversary got me realizing I should probably get my butt up and re-start my Amalgam Posting Project (also unemployment continues unabated).

So here to start us off, WWII Captain America meets Action Comics Superman...
