I only cried a little! ONLY A LITTLE!
And then some more.
"Wanna know how I got these scars? My father was… A drinker. And a fiend. And one night, he goes off crazier than usual. Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn’t like that. Not. One. Bit. So, me watching, he takes the knife to her. Laughing while he does it. He turns to me, and he says… ‘Why so serious?’ Comes at me with the knife… ‘Why so serious!?’ Sticks the blade in my mouth… ‘Let’s put a SMILE on that face.’ And… Why so serious?”
Joker, by Aleks.
For immediate release!
Marvel and DC officially announce the return of THE AMALGAM UNIVERSE!
For the first co-publishing venture in over a decade, Marvel and DC have come to an agreement to bring back The Amalgam Universe, a universe comprised of ‘amalgam characters’ of some of the most beloved superheroes of the two most exciting comic book publishers in the entire world.
Spinning out of the events of Forever Evil and Original Sin, The Amalgam Universe is a brand-new, 12 part maxi series by super scribes Geoff Johns and Brian Michael Bendis with artwork by Olivier Copiel, Bryan Hitch, John Romita jr., Alex Maleev, Mike Deodato jr., and comics legend John Byrne, making his long awaited return to mainstream comics.
The Amalgam Universe will be published biweekly this September with many of your favorite regular comics ‘going dark’ for the duration of the series.
"The fallout from The Amalgam Universe is so big to both comic book universes, the changes so overwhelming, that you won’t recognize most of your favorite titles at the end of it.” said Bendis.
When asked: why now? Both publishers, in a joint statement said: because announcing it tomorrow just isn’t that funny.
Stay tuned for more details.
This is why I hate April Fools. Now I’m going to cry and ask myself why we can’t have new Amalgam comics. I miss you, Spider-Boy!
The comics of the new Amalgam line TheNow52 I’m most looking forward to:
Sinnekin (Joker’s Daughter × Harley Quinn × Sin)
Some people just want to see the world burn. Sinéad Wilkins just wants to finish school and step into the footsteps of her soon retiring father and become the worlds most feared mercenary.
BatGuy (Batman × Hawkeye)
Meet Logan Wayne, mutant, crime fighter, Judgment League Avenger and master detective, who just never seams to catch a break.
Hood Soldier (Red Hood × Winter Soldier)
Nobody stays alive - except for the Hood Soldier. See what happens to the most famous sidekick of the Amalgam Universe, when an deadly accident kills his body, but keeps his soul and consciousness trapped in it. Being a superhero is hard, being an undead superhero is harder.
Jestpool kills the Multivers (Joker × Deadpool)
The most charismatic and funny mass murderer of the Amalgam Multiverse is on his last killing spree, before he’s faking his death to settle down with his new wife.
