I was planning on (one of these days) writing up a review, for the blog, of the 01996 Marvel / D.C. "Amalgam Comics" one-shot:
...but it seems I don't really have to.
George Khoury over at Comic Book Resources has already done the ultimate write-up over there.
He's even interviewed the wonderful creative team;
Ron Marz, José Luis Garcia-Lopez, Kevin Nowlan,
and had them share their memories and experiences of the experimental and very creatively driven piece of work.
Nothing I can do to top that.
If you haven't read the comic in question, go NOW. Do not wait.
Run, don't walk to your comic-book seller and demand a copy.
It really shouldn't cost you more than a couple of bucks - tops.
Probably less than a current comic, and it'll be FAR, FAR better.
However, if you need ANY convincing, read George's review / retrospective HERE.
Tell him Sanctum Sanctorum Comix sent ya (and he'll go; "Who?")
Credit where it's due dept.; instead of scanning any one of my copies of this book (don't ask), I nabbed the above cover scan from those wonderful folks at the Grand Comic Book Database.
